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.

    Please accept this message as notification that that I am leaving my position of Senior Equity Dealer with XYZ Internationals effective March 15, 2014. I have always enjoyed working in the company and have never thought that I have to leave the company because of the health concerns.

    From last two years I was suffering from severe headache. Every time it occurred I thought it to be a part of life arising out of stress and hectic work schedule. Previously the frequency of problem was 5-6 days in a month which had now increased to 10-15 days in a month. I consulted the specialist doctor who advised me to go for MRI. After 2 days when I received the report, I was shocked as it revealed that I am suffering from brain tumor and have to undergo surgery in Mumbai. I never expected that at this young age I have to undergo brain surgery. In such circumstances I have no option but to resign from job to follow the advised treatment. The problem is so serious that I won’t be able to serve the notice period of 2 months. Meanwhile the company finds the replacement, I have arranged for my assistant to look after the important tasks and take my help on phone call as and whenever required. I feel sorry for the severity of the transitional problems that will arise from my immediate resignation.

    I will always cherish the experiences and the learning moments I have had at Traders International.
