Medical - Other forces


First post so please try and be gentle!

So I applied for both the Army and the Royal Navy simultaneously (I know that probably wasn't the best idea but at the time I wasn't sure and wanted to get the ball rolling).

I've noticed in correspondence with the Careers Office that my application number is the same for each force, therefore my question is: If I get rejected by one force, will the other force be aware of this?

Ideally looking for something from Ninja or someone else who works in the AFCO but all advice welcome.

Yep Army/Navy/Airforce applications all sit on the same software system which is visible to all three services.

The Army will probably want your Navy medical notes if you have the Army medical later.

In any event, the medical standards are pretty much the same.

Best of luck,

In most cases yes although the RN does have a few single service standards which it applies independently. One example being ACL reconstruction barring entry in the RN, but not necessarily other services.
