Heart Murmur - Medical

Apparently, I was diagnosed with a heart murmor during my pre-joining medical at the Careers Office way back in 1978. I got in with no problems. Shame I only discovered this at a PULHEEM (sp?) some 15 years later when, after the doc strangely had me doing star jumps, told me why :roll:

Rocky,

I was diagnosed with a heart murmur during my pre-joining medical last year. I was referred back to my GP to arrange an echocardiogram; which he duly did. Two months later I had my second pre-joining medical (minus the bag-grab), handed the doctor the results of the echo and she promptly passed me through.

I join in January 2010~.

Good luck, buddy.

No worries, Rocky.

I’m on a 21 month waiting list to join as an HM (Hydrography, Meteorology & Oceanography Specialist). I actually submitted my application in November ’07 but the process was prolonged due to me being a re-entrant.
