Medical been sent off?

Discussion in 'Joining Up - Royal Navy Recruiting' started by Richard88, May 20, 2009.

Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Hopefully going in as ME, had my medical back in november they asked for more information from my doctor as i had some sort of fit to do with the heat when i was 6 i belive, so it was about 14 years ago and as far as i'm aware the doctors at the time didn't even know what it was.

    So basicly my application was sent off to the navy doctors in january and i'm just wondering how long it will take, there has been nothing of the sort in 14 years.

    Thanks in advance

  2. no one on here can give you a answer, your AFCO can though, i suggest talking to them as they will give you a definate answer
  3. It sounds like you had a febrile convulsion which is fairly common in babies. If you want a bit of advice on it PM angrydoc on here who i'm sure will help if he can.

    good luck

    There is a bit of a backlog with these referrals at the moment.
  5. Hi,

    Unfortunately there has been a hold up in the specialist medical process. We have been waiting for 1 for over 1 year now. That said they are endeavouring to get them dealt with as quickly as possible and have put extra staff into the team to try and clear the back-log.

    The best thing you can do is ring your careers advisor and ask for an update.

    Hope this helps


  6. Good to hear :D

    I spoke to my AFCO at the beginning of the month and they said their cases from January were being dealt with, plus a couple pre-new year.

    I've been waiting nearly 2 months and haven't heard anything regarding the decision.

    Hope you get the results you want :)
  7. Are you on a refferal, if that is the case, did they still let you take your PJFT?
  8. I am, and no.

    Not allowed to do anything to do with the application/selection until the medical results come back. Whether that includes the security check, I don't know. Though I guess it doesn't make sense to spend the cash on someone who can't join anyway.
  9. keep your chin up, you should hear something soon
  10. Cheers for reply's guys, gave them a call and they contacted them 2 days ago for an update, so hopefully should not be that long now.

    Dr.Zoidberg- if that is correct then hopefully mine should be soon as it was posted in january.
