At the moment I am on a review 2 due to ongoing issues with my knee . I have had it x rayed and I have ligament damage. The duty I am on is 24 hrs 4 days. The trouble is I cannot use a trolley on it due to the area being classed high risk, [you would have to leave the trolley at the bottom of flats etc]. I want to come back tomorrow or otherwise I would trigger a review 3. But the manager is refusing to give me the use of a trolley and move me to another duty [ I don't want to shift anyone off their duty so I would go spare], yet the manager says it doesn't fit his office structure me being moved to reserve etc because I don't drive. I have over thirty years service in and I thought that royal mail was supposed to have your welfare at heart?

Ask if you can have a trike.

Dont carry more than the maximum weight in your pouch ( 5kg for flats I believe ) and resupply from the van/dropbox.
Inform your manager you would like scales in order to weigh your bags so you are not carrying more on the shoulder than you should be.
If carrying less and resupplying more means that it takes you longer to complete the duty and you need to leave stuff in to accommodate then im sure your manager will start taking your concerns seriously
