Failed Medical?

Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. I have just recieved a letter stating I have failed a medical because of my thyroid.

    The background of my thyroid problem is this. I have been going to the the hospital every year for the past 9 years for a check up on my underactive thyroid. I have never taken medication for it and the antibodies are fine.

    The letter says that I can re-apply 5 years after normalisation of my antibodies. I am not a doctor in anyway but surely if my antibodies where not at a normal level then I would be on medication?

    Is there anyway I can appeal this decision and seek private medical advice to help my case?

    Thanks in advance for your answers. I am absolutely gutted knowing I failed with something which is outwith my control.

  2. PM Angrydoc he's the authority on medical matters and very helpful Best of luck
