Medical standards RNR vs RN

Have used the search function for this but have not found an answer....

Do medical standards differ between the reserves and the regulars?

I have seen the current standards (?jsp950 was 346), and from this I gleaned that everyone is measured with the same yard stick but today I have been led to believe different. Can anyone shed some light on this please?

Thanks in advance

No difference when I joined 41 years ago, can't imagine it's any different today (been out 21 years now!)

@janner ... thanks for this, for some reason I was led to believe otherwise. I couldn't see why there would be any difference though!

When a person serving in the RNR transfers to the regulars seamlessly, the initial medical remains valid unless their medical status has changed whilst serving.

Ditto when transferring from the regulars to the reserves seamlessly, the RN discharge medical counts as the RNR entry medical.

All that said, there are certain Maritime Reserve roles that exceptionally employ those with former regular service in a limited, non operationally deployable category. Those particular roles tend to be niche billets for individuals in a managerial role with unique service-related specialist skills/knowledge relating to operational capability.
