Apologies for posting and sorry if I get facts wrong . I'm posting on behalf of a friend , hence my probable/slight vagueness . A friend suffered a subarachnoid harmorrhage approximately 3 years ago . Following a relatively long rehab they made a fairly solid recovery despite the obvious headaches and memory issues. The individual in question is a Serving police officer and was given a 'desk job' to assist in this recovery as they were anxious not to leave or be absent from work .
Due to various changes in work they're now in the process of being returned to full operational duties , Basically as a police officer on full duties dealing with all that that involves .
My concern and that of their family is that is my friend at a greater risk of injury or reoccurrence of due to the risks that being an operational officer presents. ? Clearly it's a job that presents a real risk of suffering another head injury and the worry is that something could happen which leads to another haemorrhage . That's obviously putting aside the issues with his memory presents. The person involved isn't the type to talk of their concerns or 'Rock the boat' so I'm really asking on behalf of friends and family so we can maybe all sit down and discuss this at a bit more length with perhaps a bit more information at our disposal and then persuade them to rethink this as I know it's causing them deep concerns .
I'm sorry if this seems vague but any help would be greatly appreciated . Can I also stress I'm not going behind this persons back they are absolutely stressing and worrying about this but think there is nothing they can do & are treating it with resignation . Myself and others just want to get a better understanding of where we are to see if there is anything we can do to provide some support.
