  1. hi,
    I completed my pre joining medical a few weeks ago and the doctor sent some forms away and said that they have to have a look at a rash I had on my arms and I'm slightly worried that this will stop me dead in my tracks and get me rejected, I spoke to my gp and she said it could be very mild eczema, what are the chances of being accepted and can I appeal if I don't, keeping in mind it's not itchy, sore or anything else,
    Thanks,

    Again, it's one of those things only a service medical professional can definitively advise. I'm fairly sure, in order to manage realistic expectations, applicants need to be a couple of years free from eczema treatment on their medical record and visually free from eczema at the medical examination, mild or otherwise.

    The time period is non-negotiable.
