My grandson received some encouraging news today from the careers people. Somebody called him back after he had asked what he has to do in order to appeal CAPITA's previous decision. He was told to provide an up to date EKG, which his GP will hopefully provide, and an echocardiogram report which we will more than likely have to foot the cost of. In addition he is being sent an appeals form. So provided his tests come up good, all is not lost.@oldplodder I am no expert in the appeals system but it seems to me if they're advising your Grandson on how he can appeal there could be grounds for making one. If the dreaded words "Permanently Medically Unfit" haven't been applied anything is worth a try. There have been many cases on this forum where people have challenged the Capita decision and won and I sure someone will be able to tell you the best way to go about it.
Good luck to your Grandson in his endeavours.
Great place this for Navy hopefuls and families.
