Details as to the self-certification procedures applicable within the force are available from Personnel and your JBB Office.
Your unfitness for duty may be challenged first by way of a referral to the Force Medical Officer and, if then the Force Medical Officer and your Doctor disagree on your fitness for duty, by reference to a third medical practitioner on appeal.
If, on any day, you have, during the period of 12 months ending with that day, been on sick leave for 183 days, you will cease for the time being to be entitled to full pay and become entitled only to half pay.
If, on a day you have been on sick leave for the whole of the period of 12 months ending with that day, you cease for the time being to be entitled to any pay whilst on sick leave.
The Chief Constable retains the discretion, however, to extend the period of entitlement to, as appropriate, full pay or half pay.
