Questions For A Selected Medical Practitioner (SMP)


Under The Police (Injury Benefit) Regulations 2006, the SMP has four questions to consider for an injury award –

(a) whether the person concerned is disabled

(b) whether the disablement is likely to be permanent…

(c) whether the disablement is the result of an injury received in the execution of duty, and

(d) the degree of the person’s disablement…

If the officer has already been granted ill-health retirement, questions (a) and (b) will have already been answered.

    It is quite straightforward why does it take so long for a decision to be made. When a decision is made why does it it take forces so long to payout. It is an absolute disgrace making individuals wait several years and the response from an individual who then becomes a HR manager is it will be backdated.

    I have an IIDB awarded for life as a consequence of PTSD from multiple terrorist incidents and have not been able to hold down employment since 2008., but still I am denied injury on duty award.
    The fight goes on.
