Made a mistake on medical form, declared TMU

Hi everyone, I am a typically harrassed middle aged mother of three boys, the oldest of which is in the process of applying to join the RN. He asked me to help him with dates of all the times he has fallen over and hurt himself playing rugby to put on his medical form, as I had wiped some of these from my memory bank I advised asking the receptionist at the surgery for dates of all the ones we could remember and any others that were on the system.

To cut a long story short he ended up putting the same injury, a sprained ankle, down twice as it was logged on the system last November when it happened and again in June this year, the date when the stray X-ray from November was finally logged in his records. My son didn't question this as the receptionist was a bit brusque and I assumed it was one of the minor knocks we had forgotten about.

This wouldn't be important if he hadn't received a TMU letter and now I am worrying that the ankle looks like a chronic problem rather than a one off issue from last year. Do you think he should contact his AFCO to try and clear this up or just hope it is resolved when Capita get his notes?

If you manage to read all this, Thank you!

Best bet is to get the error corrected on his medical records. In the event it is declared a recurrent (chronic) injury in the interim & results in a medical knock-back, there are then potentially grounds to appeal.
