How are cardholders who hold multiple medicals managed?
Cardholders may hold multiple medicals at any given time, and roles/competencies managed as per the requirements detailed in What are the medical categories and expiry calculations used in the RIW System?
For example: a cardholder can hold valid Category 1 and Category 3 Medicals simultaneously, with the respective expiry dates based on the National Standard or TfNSW’s Category 3 requirement - i.e. the expiration is independent of each other.
However, the interaction between the medicals may be impacted upon at the next medical, for example:
- If the cardholder is due for their Category 3 Medical, and the Medical Provider (AHP) deems the cardholder as Unfit for Duty, the RIW System will treat the cardholder as unfit for both Category 1 and the Category 3 medicals.
- If the cardholder is due for their Category 1 Medical and the AHP deems the cardholder as unfit for duty for the category 1, the Category 3 medical will not be affected.
If the cardholder is due to renew their Category 1 Medical, the AHP may deem the cardholder as Unfit for Duty for the Category 1, and may record the outcome as ‘Unfit for Categories 1 and 2, but fit for 3’ (in effect Category 3). Consequently, the RIW System will treat this as a Category 3 Medical and set the new expiry date accordingly.
Work Restrictions and Multiple Medicals
Where multiple medicals are held by a cardholder, the work restrictions set by the most recent Medical Assessment will be used on the cardholder’s profile.
