Q. What happens if I am injured at work, or I contract an occupational illness?
The new Sick Leave Scheme does not affect an employee’s right to access existing occupational injury or illness schemes.  Nurses/midwives continue to have access to the Injury at Work Scheme, the Serious Physical Assault at Work Scheme and the special sick leave entitlements in respect of TB and MRSA.
