I cant seem to remember that there was a full blown Medical,but you will get a Dental check up and lots of Jabs.

Is there another medical exam at HMS Raleigh?

In the time you are there, it's unlikely you will have time for a full medical, hence the pre-joining medical.

As andym has said, there are dental check ups and jabs though.

You will probably need a further, more thorough medical if you are going for Submariner or Diver however.

I was under the impression that there was! I start on sunday and it says in the little raleigh book that we will undergo 'rigorous medical and dental checks'
It also says on the prejoining letter that as a submariner, i will under go a specialist submarine medical examination. Does anybody know what this will contain?

Thanks Jonny

The dental checks will be rigorous since they will have to treat you before leaving RALEIGH, but if you have already had a medical check-up then they will probably only make sure that nothing has happened since then (that you haven't lost a limb etc).

Not being a submariner or medic, I can't really say for sure, but it will probably be checking your ability to undergo SM training (lung capacity, x-rays, whether your eardrums can cope with the pressure of the escape tank etc)
 
Thanks all. I wasn't sure, and didn't think it'd be necessary but i like to be prepared for these things! I don't mind a jab or two, and me teeth are spick and span :D

As for submariner, i suspect my lack of penis would mean the medics would have to turn me away ;)

As Tatto dog said the SM medical is really just another PULHEEMS medical,they pay attention to your ears,if you cant pop them(like i said i couldnt)then you will fail.Also there is a dental check up as well,just to make sure you dont have any cracks or cavities.If you have passed the medicals so far then i cant see you failing the Sub one.

Snapper, its good to see that you realise that Women don't serve on British Submarines. A point not grasped by a couple of others.
