On the introduction of the Operational Allowance provision was made that if you were hospitalised for injuries received in theatre you would receive the allowance for the planned duration of your tour. New guidance from SP Pol is that your Operational Allowance entitlement will cease as soon as you are discharged from hospital having been Aeromed from theatre. The rest of your convalescence won't attract the Operational Allowance. If you want to get the £2320.00 promised by the government "in recognition of the increased and enduring nature of danger in specified operational locations" make sure you're not injured. If you are injured make sure you book yourself on the first trooper back to theatre on dischage from RCDM if you don't want to miss out financially.
