Good day gents and ladies, I had a few problems in the past, 6 Years ago, with self harm, I applied for the Royal Marine Commandos 2 months ago and had my Application suspended because i openly admitted during my interview that i had self harm on my NHS medical records, I am very certain that this should not be a problem reading over the medical guidelines - However I told my interviewer that i had sent off for a Psychological examination with my GP personally because i wanted to strengthen my case ready for the medical, However I believe my recruiter got the wrong end of the stick and thought I meant that the GP had asked for it, Obviously due to the fact that the NHS is shite, They 'believed' they were not obligated to help me due to the fact that I had no psychological problems, So I sent an email to the careers office - Hi, i applied for the royal marines roughly 2 months ago, My recruitment advisor was Cpt. Street - My application was suspended due to a medical problem i had over 3 years ago with self harm - I requested various tests for psychological purposes to back my case up against the medical part of the application but was unable to see a psychologist due to me being 'Not enough of an emergency', However the doctor who wrote the letter to the Psychologist and also diagnosed and treated me for the self harm believed that there were no longer any on going problems and that i was indeed fit to serve with the Royal Marines - I have however contacted my local job centre in the hope that they may be able to help me with this in any way possible but i still have not heard back from them. I have also been informed that there is a medical and psychological examination that is available from my local GP that is accepted by the MOD, I would like to know is this true, Or at any length would the Royal Marines, MOD be able to supply a Psychological examination of their own which would strengthen my case. Thanks for your time, included below are my contact details and relevant information so that you can assess my situation and review anything that has been said. - The Careers office replied to me with; - Dear Jamie, Thank you for your request which has been sent to our AFCO Medical Examiner. He has forwarded it onto the Director of Health for the Royal Navy and when a decision has been made, you will be advised of his decision. Thank you, - Which leads me to the conclusion that this is obviously going to someone a bit higher in the chain of command. I Have not heard back from them in just over 2 weeks now and am wondering if this is usual, also - if this has been sent to the 'Director of health', What will be done, What can be done, and overall - What will he probably do? I Appreciate your time guys, thanks for reading and i look forward to your replies.
