Can anyone tell me the average waiting time of a Medical Assistant General Service? I couldn't find anything close to 2014 on the website. My wife's friend is a LH chef and as I was speaking to him about joining up etc he told me that at HMS Raleigh, due to such a high influx of recruits wanting to go Warfare Specialist they don't have enough room or the time to accomidate all the recruits joining as WS and so are asking them if they would consider switching trades/branches to their second choice to process them quicker and get them deployment faster. I'll have to contact my AFCO for cement facts but as they're closed for the weekend I was hoping to get some insight into current MA waiting times. Also if I phoned to ask to switch trades to MA, would I go straight to the bottom of the waiting list for MA or would my RT scores play any role in the decision?
