Greetings.
I have an upcoming triage call with capita. Despite believing I fall under the requirements for jsp950 regarding spinal fractures I fully expect them to make me PMU considering what I've read about their reputation.

When I submit an appeal, would it be okay to submit a note from my specialist if it was made at the time, after my injuries had healed? Or would capita expect a completely recent letter even though they'd contain pretty much the same thing. (I have a letter from 2017 explaining how I'm A OK)

Thank you.

Good Morning,

Firstly, well done for being so proactive and prepared for the triage call. It’ll pay in the long run to be considering appeal now.

*if* you get made TMU/PMU, the idea is to convince the Service Entry Medical Officer that you’ll be fit for the rigours of training and eventually serving in the forces.

This means that you’ll not only need to provide proof that you’re A Okay from a medical perspective but also that you can run and undertake strenuous exercise without issue. It is only my opinion that you should enclose as much as possible and both letters may show that you were okay then and okay several years into the future.

Also, an exercise diary, maybe screen shots from a running app or workout app *might* be helpful. If you wish to go one further, getting involved with a physical trainer who will be able to get you doing a properly written program that gradually helps you safely load carry would also be a good idea. It is important you get help from someone who understands how to help you safely build up weight so that you don’t get injured. Proof of this might help with any appeal.

The majority of this is only my opinion and I am not in Naval Recruiting. Also, although I am a Nurse, I am not trained in PULHEEMS or entry standards. All of this advice is experiential, but I hope it helps you. Hopefully I’ve covered it all @Ninja_Stoker and @soleil ?

Good luck!

Thank you so much for you reply. I have taken note of everything. Good shout on the proof of activity. I can produce a screenshot of my weightlifting diary.
