My call was 40 mins early!! Luckily I was off work so it wasn’t a problemUPDATE #8
Capita Recruitment Medicals.........bloody useless
So changed my lunch to work around the call. Sat in a room from 12:15 waiting for the nurse at 12:20.
Gets 12:45 still no call, look on Google.... no contact numbers only an email. Called the AFCO provided me with a number to call. Call Capita and explain how pissed off I am because I had wasted my entire lunch break waiting for a call. Their answers was they've had system problems and the Nurses are massively behind schedule.
Cut a story short re-booked in for tomorrow at 14:40.
Going from previous threads and Royal Navy advice, they advise not to hand any notice of resignation until you receive a formal offer within phase 1 training. Hope that makes sense?@ws1602 I'm currently in full time employment with a view to join the Navy this year after I have sold my house etc. When would you from the updated steps, advise to hand in my resignation at work? Does the selection process of what you've been doing, does the RN factor in you may have to leave a job? Reply would be appreciated massively
I’m currently awaiting for the Chief Medical Officers decision on whether I can join, nervous is an understatement!!UPDATE #9
Medical Call with Capita
So this time they called 30 minutes earlier than stated. Essentially they go through the questionnaire you fill in and just double check that what you have put on the questionnaire matches with what is true.
Any conditions that arise during the call will make them speak to your Doctor. They send them a letter and then you have to chase it (they request it to speed the process up). I will be calling my doctor's Wednesday to check they have received the letter and released all relevant information to the Navy.
I know how you feel. Back in 2016 I went through all of this and I got through to medical the Doctor first said I want you to go to your own doctor every month for 6 months to make sure you maintain the weight, but she had put me down as temporally medically unfit so had to do another they then found a skin problem which they had to speak to my doctor about. My doctors had put down as dermatitis on my medical record so the navy said thanks but no thanks to joining. So appealed and tried to fight the cause but lost and they still said no.I’m currently awaiting for the Chief Medical Officers decision on whether I can join, nervous is an understatement!!
How long did it take from submitting your application to hear back? I’ve been waiting just over two weeksGood read! I am still trying to get past the first hurdle of submitting my application online...the new Recruiting system doesn't seem to like me very much. Ill keep an eye on your updates and hopefully ill be in the navy in 2018
