Appealing A PMU

MrTee147

Newbie
I have just received news that I am PMU due to having a metal plate in my wrist. I have had it for 10 years and have had no problems at all with it since it was put in.

I am considering an appeal and am wondering if there is anyone out there who knows of any successful or unsuccessful appeals of a similar nature... just so that I can get a vague sense of whether it's worth appealing.

Any help is much apprecieated.

The medical standards themselves cannot be appealed against as they are non-negotiable.

If, however, the reason for the knock-back is based on the treatment of a condition, then usually certain parameters must be met. In this case the odds are the plate may no longer be necessary or the break and plate may limit the functionality of the area affected either now or in the future.

In order to successfully appeal, you need detailed copies of the injury and treatment together with a letter from an orthopaedic specialist which assures the medical examiner you have full strength and mobility, free from complications or likely future complications.

Whilst certainly no expert, it often seems to be the case that if the plate is no longer required, then maybe consideration should be given toward getting rid of it.

In the first instance I'd be inclined to inquire of the Service Entry Medical Cell, via your AFCO, under what circumstances you could meet the medical standard for entry into the service. If they say you cannot, then an appeal is pointless.

Best of luck.
