You have it on the tuesday morning aswell as the needed injections and a sample of blood. If you've applied to be a diver or submariner your medical is more detailed than normal and may be discharged if you fail.
Is fainting when they take blood an issue? I like to think i won't but my body responds differently to different types of jabs; 4 hour tattoo was fine yet my naval piercing left me counting tiles on the floor with the back of me noggin.
I prefer big pricks so middle one pleaseeee. Im not scared of needles, just when i had my meningitis jab i passed out and just remember my head of year shoving a sugar cube in my mouth. Was a bit embarassing as it ruined me well 'ard image.
...to see if people had taken drugs? Just being a **** but couldnt resist! I am guessing something to do with making sure people are adhering to the zero tolerance policy the forces have regarding drug use.
Part of me wants to suggest that if your blood pressure is more than 2% higher in RALEIGH than it was at your initial medical then you will be booted, but part of me really can't be arsed answering the endless PMs that will result...
