I am in the process of rehabilitating a knee injury. I attend physiotherapy regularly and it may take up to 3 months to get me 'ship shape' again. I seen my doctor (civvy im MRS) who downgraded me to P7R. Obviously I am not happy with this as it means I can't deploy. I am satisfied that my knee needs time to heal etc, but surely this doesn't warrant a downgrading to P7 standard. I am able to do my own PT, and before anyone starts I'm not a malingerer and I am willing to take part in any physical rehab programme. The question is----can I get a referral to another doctor and get myself upgraded to maybe P3 during my rehab period? DOes there need to be a downgrading board or can the doctor just P7 anyone he feels fit? Advice greately appreciated.
