IODA reviews.
I have received the following letter from Julian Kern Chief Finance Officer and Director of resources. "After careful consideration The Avon and Somerset Police pensions Authority has decided not to progress with their automatic review process of injury on duty awards.
This is consistent with a number of other forces and we will not recommence these reviews until such time as there is a change in legislation and guidance from the Home Office.
The Police pensions Authority will however continue to support and facilitate any reviews requested by a pensioner (in accordance with the relevant statutory framework) to enable injury on duty awards to be adjusted to reflect any change to the degree of disablement, or relevant earnings capacity in accordance with regulations.
We have written directly to those pensioners who are currently within the review process informing them of this decision"
The Chief Constable Andy Marsh has asked me to share this letter on the Bristol NARPO web site and I have reproduced the text as written.
Should any Branch member subject to an award wish to request a review as per the letter we will be pleased to assist and offer advice.
