    Cheers mate, got to wait couple of years in theory as my op was only in March so will try then, applied for border agency in meantime see what occurs. Thanks for support Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Just an update, phoned them again yesterday and they said no external can't appeal sickness. So that's it I'm afraid, a little aggrieved over their handling of the whole sickness tbh but can't do anything about it. Anyone know if I'm barred from applying for six months to any force ?? Good luck the rest of you, hope your all successful in the process and the job. Take care, Peteman.. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Disclose everything about immediate family that you know of, don't ask people for information I think is the general rule. I'm sure they check in laws as well. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Sorry about that Marty, I presume you are young to enough to reapply and not make same mistakes. You will be wiser for the experience in the positive side although that doesn't help when you want something badly. Good luck for the future Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    No she was really helpful on the phone and said to ring back and it wasn't a problem to do so. Whether the manager overturns it is another thing but can only sit and hope now. Wish I had written a few more things though than I did. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Just rang them this morning, said they have received email Tuesday gone and it has gone onto line manager for review. She stated it could take a few days due to the number of applicants and to ring back if nothing heard on Wednesday when I get back from Spain. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    I've never had much short term absence only odd couple of days a year if that. Had two periods of 6 weeks off for operations, knee and lump in back in nearly 30 years and only that long due to physical side of job I do. Thanks for support mate. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    No mate heard nothing as yet, sent an email in Monday and was gonna wait until Friday before ringing to confirm they had it and if they will reply, not holding much hope tbh as not heard of sickness issues being overturned before personally. Even though o could apply again after 6 months my knee op sickness will be relevant for next 2 years and 10 months. [emoji35] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    They had my full file to assess my notes from my operation, they have had it for 2 weeks now. They said I would be seeing smp to review it purely for my knee op and ill health benefit, the doctor said it would not stop me joining. The smp might have reviewed my file and seen something about sickness from 2002 when I was off for 6 weeks after I had a lump removed from my back, couldn't work purely due to nature of the job as I work with young offenders and restraint is a sometimes common occurrence at times. Maybe they thought my sickness for my knee was excessive but again I am expected to retrain in violent situations and couldn't risk damaging my knee straight after an operation. I just don't know and guessing really as 10 weeks seems a long time to come back and reject me for sickness after letting me go through all the other process. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    3 periods in one year and no more than average of 24 days over 3 years. 10 weeks since I provided the info just after AC. Even the lady on phone said it would likely be ok considering it was an extenuating circumstances. Can only think they have seen something else on my file from years ago and they have used the sickness as an excuse to say no otherwise they would have failed me within a week or two of submitting it. I will let you know what HR manager says to my unofficial appeal by email. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    They failed me today for my sickness, 10 weeks after I provided them with information on my sickness record so presumed after completing everything after assessment centre that I was ok. Doesn't seem right considering I was waiting on an appointment for a review on my knee with the doctor this next week or so. I had three periods of sickness in 3 years 1 day, 2 day and 35 days with the latter a keyhole operation to fix a torn cartilage. Have phoned and sent an email asking for a review of the decision as I feel it is very unfair considering time and sections completed since I submitted but not holding much hope for a change.

  13. Changing Application To Another Force.

    Don't know about transferring but I wouldn't let an hour commute put you off joining mate, I live 15 miles from my job in Manchester and mornings can take me an hour to get there plus I think police hours are better suited to traveling outside of busy hours as well. Good luck what you choose mate ! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    To be fair people have been known to get appeals overturned even when not given an option of an appeal. I Would think they would mainly be police errors or incorrect information disclosed. I hope you get an appeal but you can't ask advice and then throw it back in people's faces when you don't like the answer, simply you have made a serious error of judgement failing to disclose other residents in your home. I'd take the advice from your sergeant as you feel that is the best course of action for you. Let's not let this thread become a joke one !! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Marty - the probable reason for your fail is failing to answer a question about who lives in your home. Even if he was squeaky clean it's a fail on integrity alone, you have to disclose everything good or bad. The fact he has a history is a double whammy. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
