Sample resignation letter for health reasons
I resign from my post as Personnel Manager at New Talent Consultancy Limited with effect from June 8, 2014. I have taken the decision to resign from my current designation due to health problems.
For some time now, I have been experiencing breathlessness and exhaustion. I also experienced severe chest pains on Monday. After the doctor examined me, I was advised to go for an ECG. The results of the report are not positive. The ECG findings indicate that I have erratic heartbeat and blockage in the valves of my heart. I have also been diagnosed with severe cholesterol and blood pressure problems.
As I have been suffering from hypertension for the past 12 years, it is not surprising that I am now medically declared as being at a high risk for developing congestive heart failure. I am certain that I have not been well for some time now. I kept delaying the visit to the doctor due to professional obligations and work compulsions. After a serious discussion with the doctor regarding my current lifestyle and stressors at work, my wife and I have arrived at a mutual understanding that I will now retire from my job. I am not under any financial compulsions to continue working. The precarious state of my heart makes it imperative that I resign. My resignation is also in the best interests of the company.
I am grateful to the staff and HR team for their kind and understanding attitude. I wish all of you at New Talent Consultancy all the very best for the future.
