Hi, I was wondering if anyone can provide information regarding the "exceptional circumstances" that would allow someone to join up as a Nursing Medical Officer over the age of 39. "Age on entry: 17-39 (exceptionally up to age 49)" I'm asking this question on behalf of a family member as they have always had an interest in joining the Royal Navy, but due to circumstances and priorities hasn't had the opportunity to join up until recently. She has the qualifications and experience required for the role but she is 41. Any information regarding this would be greatly appreciated. thanks.
