Hi guys, I am new to the site but have followed it for a short while. I am looking for advice in what seems to be a grey area. I am posting for advice and any help that anyone could offer me or that have been in a similar situation. Please bear with me as I would like to explain my situation in full so I apologise in advance. I will start with “UTY OF CARE” as this had become an issue within the unit at the time so I ask you to remember this as you work your way through my plea! I have recently left the Armed Forces after 13years’ service. On the 3rd of March earlier this year whilst still serving butin my resettlement phase I suffered a complicated leg break in a sporting incident over a weekend. (This obviously halted the resettlement and transformation into the real world). My contract was due to cease on the 1st April almost 4 weeks later. As you can appreciate this came at a very busy and important time for me. On release from 5days in hospital I immediately contacted the military Dr on my way home. I was told to use the NHS system as it would be more convenient / accessible to me as my contract would cease within weeks. Frustratingly but as expected I knew I would be on a lengthy lay off to make a recovery after the surgery to have a titanium rod inserted just under my knee, down to the ankle through the centre of my shin bone. I was advised that a 6-9 months lay off was the normal recovery phase for this type of leg break. I am now over this time frame. Early in October I was given yet another sick note from the DR and this will run up to mid February 13. (Resettlement still not started / planned as I am uncertainif I will be impaired or have any restraints at this moment, but it seems likely). This will force me towards nearly 12 months out with possibly further treatment depending on that outcome as the injury hasn`t recovered as well as first anticipated. (SLIGHTLY SIDE TRACKING) I did leave the Forces with good health being a keen sportsman and involved with many fitness activities,but I did have a previous ankle injury this was done whilst serving. I was injured representing the Infantry football team. This was a high impact injury with medial ligament damage. From this I had physiotherapy treatment and missed the 2010-11 tour to Afghanistan whilst behind on light duties and being enrolled on a high intensity physio programme I suffered an additional injury to my ankle which has left me with limited range and movement in the ankle. Inthe last 2 years this had rendered my unfit to fulfil my job role (Plt Sgt). The outcome of this was to employ me into a light duties job role. This was part of my reasoning to terminate my contract as well as to concentrate on my young family. There was talk of redundancy/medical discharge that could ofbeen a possibility but no time frame could be given and I didn`t want to become stuck in limbo (over the 12 year point) and have it dragged out for years to come and become a pension prisoner. Whilst I was young enough and still had reasonably good health I could transform my 13 years of skills and experience in to a new career and move forward. There is more to the story but I don’t want to harp on ormake your eyes bleed with my plea!! All in all the answer I am looking for is that should I have been discharged whilst occurring this injury?? MOD 90 still hasn`t been handed in and clearance chit isstill incomplete! Unit was contacted in regards to the above to which nothing prevailed. All this resulting in leaving me unfit to work unable toprovide give up my property although I found a tennant and having to use my lump sum and spend my savings as I cannot claim off state as I have too much in my savings, that has now depleted !! British Legion and other agencies have also been contacted but awaiting responses ans this is months in advance with nothing heard. Should I have at least been rehabilitated fully and remainedon the payroll until I was fixed? Any advice, assistance, contacts would be greatly appreciated! “UTY OF CARE” ???
