Good evening, Today I had to see the SMP in relation to being medically pensioned and I was wondering if there is anyone currently in the same position. I am a 17 year Constable that has always been front line and absolutely loved my job. Unfortunately I suffered a terrible injury on duty that has left me totally unable to work as a front line officer. I saw the SMP who didnt even conduct a physical examination as she said I was a straight forward case and told me that she would be recommending I was pensioned off due to my injury. To be honest, as gutted as I am, I know this is the only option and I now have the wait to find out how much (or little) they decide i get. I just wanted to see if there was anyone else in the same position that would like to liase with me via message to see how were getting on. So many people have told me how "lucky" i am to be getting out and it annoys the crap out of me. I am 35 years old and I am classed as permanently disabled all because of doing the job I love.........I dont feel that lucky!
