Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. 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 :(
     
  2. See below.

    The very best of luck.

    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.
