Unless it's a niche issue requiring a decision from a consultant in a specific area of medicine, or further data is required, the average medical appeal is used turned around in under a month.
It certainly did take that long until they quadrupled the size of the service entry medical cell, who are excellent.Many thanks that is great.
I had heard that normally people wait 3 months and sometimes over 6 months but i wasn't sure if this was just exaggeration or the odd unlucky individual.
Young mariner. Have you heard back from your medical appeal?
How did it go?
And how long did you wait?
Just wondering as I have had to appeal my medical also.
Different AFCOs clearly run different routines. In my AFCO the individual Careers Adviser would send off the appeal and send an acknowledgement to the appellant. In the event the Careers Adviser was on leave etc., the duty Careers Adviser would get it sent off.Hey there,
I sent my appeal off just over two weeks ago but I was told it wouldn't be sent off until the person who sends them off was back in the office. I'm not sure if they have even sent it off yet which is annoying but I've bothered my careers adviser too much to ask!
Do we get informed once they send our appeal off?
