My husband was diagnosed with asthma after serving in the gulf war on board a warship in 2002. He had never suffered from it before and it seemed to be a result of this time away. After slipping through the net for years he was completing training at HMS Collingwood when he was sent to an MBoS and made P3 and was told that he would stay this way until his Tx date Dec 2018. He has just had a letter recalling him to a new MBoS and is now concerned that a medical discharge is under way and feels that he is about to be an unwilling casulty of the defense cuts. He has completed his HND in Engineering (POET) with flying colours, is in date and passed all fitness tests first time and has completed PLOC (SRCC) would this be taken into consideration when attending the next board. I know he doesnt want to be medically discharged as he carried out his role for years before being made P3. However if he is faced with discharge does he right of appeal and can his latent developement of asthma be classed as occupational? Please can anyone advise me if you have found yourself in a similar position or have any information that would help.
