Request by Forces for Injury Pension Details 3

This is a follow on from Roy’s previous post on this matter which can be read here and here.

Dear Colleagues,

Some of you have contacted me having already submitted your forms requesting ‘what should you do?’.
Please do not worry about it. Essex Police can only review your pension following an appointment with the ‘Selected Medical Practitioner’.

However, if you are concerned about what you have sent to Essex Police, especially authorisations for them to gain access to your details held by HM Revenue or the Department of Work and Pensions, then I would certainly write a second letter.

In the letter, state that you wish to withdraw any consents you included in the questionnaire you have recently submitted. You could send this letter by recorded delivery which would give you proof that it has been received by Essex Police. You could also speak to your Doctors and make sure they do not release any personal medical records without your further authority.

When writing this letter emphasize that you are prepared to attend a review with the selected medical practitioner and also let them know if your medical condition has not changed since the last review or it has worsened. This may prevent the need to personally attend a review. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you are concerned about theses matters.

Kind Regards

Roy Scanes

Secretary Chelmsford Branch NARPO


For further information the Injury On Duty Pensioners Association are actively involved. The IODPA have a guide on their website, giving some practical advice as your rights if you are called for review. The advice comes from the best legal brains in the country over the Police (Injury Benefit) Regulations 2006.
