RFA Clinically Isolated Syndrome

Hi everyone,

So as if things couldn't get more annoying for me. Having been rejected from the full time RN for medical reasons related to mental health issues I was all prepared for applying for the RFA having been assured that I would likely be absolutely fine back in February I had a nervous system problem. I was diagnosed with Clinically Isolated Syndrome which may or may not be a precursor to Multiple Sclerosis. There is no way they can know if I will develop MS in the future or not and it is really just a case of wait and see. It could just be a one off or it could develop in the future into a more serious nervous system problem. Is this likely to hinder me applying for the RFA? :/ I am not receiving any on going treatment for it and didn't even take any medication at the time of the episode. Any ideas anyone :(

Best bet? Call the RFA Recruiting Team in Portsmouth - they have an occupational health specialist who can give definitive advice in this area: 02392 725243

The AFCO are unfortunately unable to advise on Board of Trade medical parameters for entry into the RFA.

Good luck in your aspirations.
