R (Marrion and others) v Board of Medical Referees and others – WLR Daily

R (Marrion and others) v Board of Medical Referees and others [2009] EWCA Civ 450; [2009] WLR (D) 135

“Where a firefighter applied for a disability pension, the question to be resolved by the independent qualified medical practitioner and on appeal by the Board of Medical Referees under the Firefighters’ Pension Scheme was whether the firefighter was subject to incapacity for the performance of his operational firefighting duty and any other duties within the definition of ‘regular firefighter’ and within his contract which it was proposed that he perform, but not any additional duties. Where no redeployment away from operation firefighting was available, the question stopped with incapacity for the performance of operational firefighting. It was not within the board’s jurisdiction to give a binding decision which trespassed on issues which were not part of the firefighter’s appeal.”
