I have just been informed that my ACL reconstruction will bar me entry into the rn, the careers officer said I could appeal the decision, just wondering what the likelihood of an appeal being successful is? Any information or related stories would be greatly appreciated.
Hate to be a pessimist, but I don't see what you can appeal against. ACL reconstruction is a non-negotiable single service policy unfortunately - you either had this procedure or you didn't. The Senior Medical Officer ain't going to say "Oh, go on, since you asked nicely", unfortunately.
Word on the street is that the Army may well be revising their policy & following the Navy lead, but if you are swift, it maybe worth investigating whether it is a bar to entry in the Army.
