If your absence is because of illness, FirstCare will offer you confidential medical advice and support from registered general nurses during your absence from work. Once reported, your absence will remain OPEN until you contact FirstCare and CLOSE it with your date and time of returning to work. The relevant information that you give will be sent to your line manager(s) along with guidance on how they may best support you during your absence.
