I was declared permanently medically unfit during selection due to my smear test results. I had been monitored at the colposcopy clinic for 18 months, and discharged back to the standard 3 year smear test cycle shortly before my medical. Given that smear test results change over time (mine improved), I'm not sure why the decision was a permanently unfit rather than a deferral. Has anyone been in a similar situation and been able to find out why their decision was permanently unfit (or a deferral if this is what they were given)? I am planning to appeal, and the colposcopy nurses and consultant are willing to write a letter for me stating that I am fine for service, but I'm not sure what it needs to include. Has anyone successfully appealed from a similar decision and can give me some advice? PM is fine if that's better. Thanks lots for any help.
