Failing medical - unconciousness.

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. My son had another medical today - his 6 monthly 1. He was due to start in September this year, but had a fall last month & was unconsiuous for over 1 hour. He was told today, that as he was unconsious for over30 mins, they could no longer accept him.

    He wasn't injured when he came round & was discharged from hospital the next day.

    Anything we can do?

  2. He has been rejected as he has a higher risk of post-injury epilepsy than someone with a milder head injury. This risk will have abated 5 years after the injury - there is nothing that can be done until this stage.

    The standards are absolute - you can appeal a diagnosis but not our application of the standard. It sounds pretty clear cut in this case though - apologies.
