Medical appeals

Hi all,

I received RGMD outcome stating history of thoracic fracture and so unsuccessful. I had an accident four years ago, minor T12 vertebra injury. No surgery done. Stable fracture. Will heal on time, doc said. Normal after a couple of weeks and in excellent fitness now. My gp, upon seeing my nhs history, would've written spine fracture in my RGMD. I had actually a transverse and spinous fracture, meaning sudden pain in the back at the time of injury. In the JSP950 extract, it says "Spinal fracture. Candidates with ... but excluding resolved spinous and transverse process fractures ...". So it is a case of inadequate information provided with my RGMD. I have planned to go for a MRI scan and spine specialist report (I think affordable!!) to be submitted with my appeal. Will it be successful?

Any advice/input would be extremely helpful!! Thanks!!

we can't tell you if you'll be sucessfull or not, however you are taking the right approach so have a better chance than those who start whining about it and claiming their rights have been broken etc.
Send a polite email, with supporting evidence stating the facts (and don't include letters from team captains, personal trainers etc)
 
First time on here. My situation is been branded P8 after a fracture at the bottom of my tibia back in 2012 was defined as a ‘triplane’ fracture and can lead to early onset osteoporosis as a result. Not even sure this is accurate as I had no surgery and all it took was 6 weeks in a low cast before I was back in sport.

Since then I have done gold d of e, army cadets for 7 years,
county level rugby, half marathons, power lifting including squatting over 200kg etc etc. No issues ever.


I plan to appeal naturally (also worth a mention that I have been to AOSB before for 6th form scholarship, didn’t get it but they asked me to come back later. This didn’t come up last time on my medical as the form was different).

Any thoughts or advice on best way to proceed?

Thanks
