Afternoon everyone
So last september I was graded Unfit when I did the over the phone triage, the reason being I had to wait two years post op to join . Any way come april (2nd Anniversary of opp)captia told my careers office that I had to apeal because I was found unfit so I did , I sent off the apeal was told I would get a recipt to say It got sent but I didn’t .But today I got a date for a face to face medical so would that mean the apeal was successfull ?
Thanks all.

I'm no expert in these matters but I would guess that if you have an appointment for a face to face medical you are not classed PMU(permanently medically Unfit).
Good luck with it.

As correctly surmised, if you've been moved forward from triage to the face to face medical, it means whatever element was holding you up at the triage stage has been resolved.

Before conducting cartwheels, at risk of sounding a miserable bugger, you still need to pass all elements examined in the face to medical such as blood pressure, beighton test, height/weight/bmi, hearing test, colour perception test, urine test, etc.

Best o'luck.

I think I should be allright but you never know what might pop up , so one will hold the cart wheels until after he stamps my forehead.

Just an update after my medical. The stuff to do with my disectomny 2 years back was accepted, provided my exercise book etc and did all the stupid walks and blowing tests etc .But the quack thinks I have a dipped chest so before I can be passed fit I have to go have my heart and lungs checked . Will update when that has been done. I decided I wanted to join the the Navy whilst sat in hospital two years ago, so another month or so won’t hurt .

@Ninja_Stoker so if things have been cleared up and you've been declared fit to proceed to a face to face, is it more than likely the face to face doctor will be happy with what I explained to capita or will I be in the same situation looking at possible TMU again?

Yes, have done @janner and understand other problems could be found. Just wondering if the problems capita have cleared me of and now said I'm fit to proceed with could pop up as a problem or, the fact they've stated its no problem that the doctor will also look to that conclusion. I know no-one is a medical professional here but I'm asking from peoples previous experiences, thanks

Everyone's experience is unique to their circumstances so are unlikely to give you a guide. Trying to second guess what will happen when it's your turn I think is counterproductive. Just rock up and give it your best shot and stop worrying.

In my world, there are two 'p's' in appeal. It means the judges get to p*ss on your case twice, once when you apply for permission to appeal and again at the final hearing (if you get permission). :)
