Can I ask, if you fail this medical are you discharged or simply transfered to the General Service? I had a spot of trouble passing the hearing test first-time around, barely passed it and I think the GP was only inclined to pass me because I had a letter from a hearing specialist.

Read carefully - If you fail on a point that precludes you from service in submarines then you will be offered a place in general service.

I have had similar as well.

For Example when you pass out from Dartmouth and you finish you CFT and Professional training etc (inc. the JWOC) you will then go to HMS Raleigh. You will be placed in a decompression chamber. If you fail that you will then be transferred to General Service.. So I have heard.

Once again the best person to ask about this kind of stuff is either a serving Submariner or the old fail safe.... the AFCO/ACLO!!

Ok - so your then placed in a decompression chamber...and then? Given tea and stickies?

If (and it's a big if) you have a problem in the pot, then, dependant upon what the nature of the problem is, you will see a specialist/consultant at the Institute of Naval Medicine (INM).

Craig - if you don't know what you are on about about, don't post. Even my knowledge can sometimes be called into question and has grey areas - that's after three decades of being here. Hence my caution when contributing to 'medical' type threads.
