  1. Anyone help!

    My Medical Officer on unit has told me he may recommend that I be medically downgraded. I have had 3 lower limb injuries (2 the same) all attributable to excessive weight carrying. I have had a lot of physio and other treatments between injuries but to no avail. He has said I am suitable for other trades (Admin) etc so the injury :?: will not end my career.

    Does anybody know what the score is?

    Thanks
     
  2. You need to get some answers before you make any decisions.

    1. What will your downgrading be i.e. LE, HO etc?
    2. Permanent or Temp?
    3. How will it affect your current role/trade (promotion etc)?
    4. If you do decided to transfer to another corps or Arm, what is the minimum PES for that one?

    Speak to your Practice Manager (at the medical centre) for advice, he should help.
