My son is in the process of applying for entry as an AET. He is 16 yrs old & coming up to his 17th birthday in May. He has passed his RT & Interview & has recently taken his Medical. Because of " hayfever with a wheeze" being on his Medical records, he was asked to complete a 28 day Peak Flow Chart. He has done this & the results were sent to the Dr. Last week he attended a second apointment where the Dr looked at the results and said " they`re fine" but he had to send them to a " Higher Authority, because of the wheeze". Having spent hours looking at numerous posts on here relating to Peak Flow/wheeze problems ,we were hoping that the Dr would have looked at the results & given the thumbs up, given that if some of the posts we have read on here to be true, that has happened to people in the past that had been users of Inhalers & also a record of Asthma in the past ! My son had just 1 incident when he was 12 (summer of 99,over 4yrs clear) when he had a bad day of hayfever(did not take a tablet). His Dr prescibed an Inhaler (which was never picked up or used). He takes Ceterizine but only a few weeks a year & only a handful times in 2012 & not at all last year. His GP submitted a letter stating that was the only time it happened & no problems since . His Peak Flow results were all average or above with 540 being the lowest & 560 being the highest. He is 59.4 KG or 9st 5lb and is 5ft 9in. The medical/results are being carried out by Capita Health, and the AFCO said the Senior Occupational Doctor will make the decision. Nothing else on his medical record, he has played competitve Football for 10 yrs(no wheezing) & very fit & active. Is this standard procedure for the Dr to send off results or just if they feel they don`t or can`t make decision ? Or is it because of his young age ? We feel he has satisfied the criteria, over 4 years clear, no steriods used, no Inhaler used & provided good Peak Flow results. We were surprised he was not asked to give a couple of Peak Flow Readings when he went for to see the Dr for the 2nd time. Apologies for length of post, just wanted to get all info down. Hope we are worrying unduly, but would hate to think sons hopes will be dashed because of GP`s eagerness to prescibe inhaler to use if needed !
