I have a RN start date in October, last weekend I was at a festival and took some pills I reacted with, and ended up in A&E due to heart palpatations.
I am unbelievably gutted and what I did, fortunately there is no permanent damage. I am not a long term or regular user and it was a one off which I would never do again, do I still have a chance of getting in? Do I speak to my afco?

You're an idiot. There is no excuse for taking illicit substances possibly unless you were held down and force-fed it. The RN has a zero-tolerance policy to illicit substances and, had you been in, you would be looking at immediate discharge (and unemployment).

If you're the sort to be willing to dabble in such dangerous drugs, you should reconsider your potential career in the Armed Forces.

You utter fool.

And no, I'd say there isn't any hope, nor should there be, frankly. I wouldn't want to serve with someone who takes recreational drugs as they would be a liability.
And before you have a go about me preaching whilst not being whiter than white myself "cos everyone makes mistakes..." I assure you, when it comes to drugs, I'm haven't and never will make such a "mistake".

3 weeks in to initial training, we had a talk on the UN's policy to RN personnel if they are found to have taken drugs (ie. "There is the door. I suggest you use it before I kick your addled ass through it." ) and had a random drugs test 2 weeks after that, thus proving that CDT is not just an idle threat. You will be caught.

Don't be so fuckin irresponsible, you can't just go around handing out puppies, for a start their for Christmas, not November, and another thing how would you carry a tray full to give away.
Fuckin stupid idea if you ask me.
