    Accident at work claim in East Kilbride


    Getting help after surgery, including how to make an accident at work claim

    If you have only had minor surgery then it will be expected that, for the most part, you will be able to take care of yourself and your own recovery following surgery. However, if you have had more serious surgery then it may not be quite as easy for you to carry on with your day to day life without help and support. You may be able to enlist friends and family to help you out as much as possible, but it may also be necessary to call on other forms of support in order to keep your household up and running and keep yourself on the road to recovery. Here are some of the forms of support you should consider for yourself.

    • Look into benefits. If you cannot work after surgery then there are disability and sickness benefits available in the UK for this very reason. You should do your best to find out about these before you have your surgery so you can apply for them in advance and won’t have to worry about doing so when you are trying to recover.
    • Ask friends and family. Friends and family can be there to help you with smaller things such as groceries and cleaning the house, but may also be willing to act as a carer for you in the first weeks after your surgery. There is no harm in asking, and this will save you money if you don’t have to hire a carer.
    • See what the NHS can offer you. After serious surgery, the NHS may offer you a nurse or help around the house at first, particularly if you live alone. You should always accept this help even if you don’t think that you will need it, as you may not quite understand how difficult it will be to move around in the first days.
