We have recently offered a job to someone who gladly accepted and contract has been issued and signed but just before her start date she indicated that she has a disability her disability would have an effect on her health and ability to carry out the role. We have had to defer her start date pending when we get full medical report from her GP, for us to know if her disability is covered under the equality act.

I am frustrated now because the GP is not responding to our entire request and the employee is eager I really need your advice on this one
