Contract termination due to long term ill health

Hi,
I've been employed for 11 years 3 months. Unfortunately I have been on long term sick for almost 6 years. I've attended numerous medicals arranged through work which have all supported my consultant and GP diagnoses.
I was eventually called in for a meeting today with HR for my first meeting in over 4 years of face to face meetings - have only had very sporadic email contact during this time - all initiated by me!
I have been told that the next stage is a formal meeting, where I assume they will be terminating my contract as there is no sign of my health improving.
My question is, what can I expect from this meeting and what entitlement will I have, if any, to a termination package - I am aware that my company have only offered redundancy packages on the bare minimum amount required, so do not hold out much hope!
Any advice etc, gratefully received as I am finding it very hard to gain any answers or advice as to what my legal rights are.
Thanks!

    I'm sorry for your problems but the Credit Card board is not the best place to get advice




    best try the Citizen Advice or the Employment etc. boards

    Hi,
    Sorry! Didn't know it had gone on the credit card section!
    Any idea how to move it / start under the work section please?
    Tried Citizens advice and ACAS and they couldn't really help. :-(
