(b)the relevant medical practitioner declines to attest and transmit a replacement certificate in response to the invitation under subsection (6).

(11)The senior medical reviewer may (in addition to the action to be taken under subsection (8) or (9)) take such steps as the senior medical reviewer considers appropriate to inform such persons as the senior medical reviewer considers appropriate of the relevant information.
