Recruitment Question


I just have question regarding joining the Royal Navy. Back in 2013 when I was 17 I was assaulted and I had a skull fracture, it was classed as a minor head injury. I had no complications during or after.The consultant at the time said I would have no problems joining the Royal Navy as far as she could see. I’m 21 now and would really like to join. Does anyone know if this would be a problem for me being accepted, I have checked the Eligibility and guidance notes, and it only says Complications following head injury would exclude me, but I had no problems as it wasn’t a major head injury. Any information or advice would be greatly appreciated.

Unless you have had a shunt/drain fitted or suffered damage to your brain or had steel plates inserted or have suffered blackouts or seizures, you can be reasonably optimistic regarding your medical suitability for service - subject to the standard checks being made on your medical history.

Best of luck.
