Hello, I am looking for advice regarding my son. He has applied to join the Royal Navy, has a start date for beginning of February. Yesterday he fell getting out of the bath, hitting his head. I have tried to persuade him to seek medical attention, although I have no medical training was always of the opinion, any head injury should be at least examined. He refuses to go to doctors or A&E to get checked out. As fears this may impact on his application and joining date. Surely it's better to get it checked out and get all clear than risk something later on. Would visiting hospital prevent him for starting in February? Yours faithfully Concerned mother.
