Hello am currently in the recruitment process myself, i have my PJFT on the 20th. Yeah when i had my RT Test i was told i had to bring the documents, there is no point f just giving them the number without the proof, they will ask for the official document. I contacted my doctors, that is the easiest way to get it, if you dont have it then dont worry!!, as long as you bring it to your interview ( that is if you get that far by the way : :lol: )
Why is it that you can never find your birth certificate when you need it. Going to be hard enough finding my degree certificate...and I only got that last year. Think I know where my NH card is...bother.
They won't be able to issue a card with the new number or amend the old one, Chris, but they will be able to write your new number on a sheet of their headed paper - that is what you need to ask for.
They should also be able to advise on obtaining a card with your new number on it - that may take a little while, but as long as you have the new number on a sheet of their paper, you should be fine at the AFCO this week.
They may have been refering to the fact they no longer issue them at the actual surgery any more but they are still being issued. The best advice I can give is crack out the telephone directory and look up the number for you local Primary Care Trust, ring them and ask about receiving a replacement.
BTW. The website previously mentioned is an application for a European Health Insurance Card which effectively replaces E111 forms.
Oh it's worse than that, unless you're going front line in the next 6 months it's now up to YOU to renew your passport too, can't even claim it back on JPA. Doesn't matter that it's a requirement of service to have an in date passport.
