*Urgent* Help

Just buggered my knee playing football, twisted it really sharply and now it's swollen up and i dare not bend it. Heres the problem, i'm due to start at Raleigh tomorrow! I'm absolutely gutted and now need to contact my CA but i can't get hold of the AFCO to tell them as it's closed by now and the telephone numbers for Raleigh state Mon-Fri 8am-5pm on the mod website. Anybody know who i need to inform and how i can do so? Please, anyone that can help? I dont wanna just not show up tomorrow.

Ouchie, we wish you a speedy recover.

If you are not able to commence training and haven't managed to speak to anyone at Raleigh yet, just ring 01752 553740 & ask for the Officer of the Day, HMS Raleigh to explain your circumstances.

Be aware for those already serving the criteria is fitness to travel. For those yet to join, arriving with a pre-existing medical condition which prevents the individual commencing training may result in Medical Discharge under the 56 day rule outlined in your S3049 Attestation Form, which is amongst your joining documentation.

Best of luck.

Give me a few minutes, I'll see what I can do.

Swollen sounds like ligaments, could be nasty one, did mine playing football, they went off like a loud crack sound, tore both cruciates, nine months later still on crutches

Thanks for the help guys. I've been speaking with Soleil over the phone and shes been very helpful, cannot offer enough praise :)

Ninja, i'll give that number a call first thing in the morning, fingers crossed i heal up nicely.
 
I think that as a guy starting a new life on the following Monday
I would have taken the opportunity of having a quiet weekend to pack bags and just have a quiet time.

Playing sports with a risk of hurting oneself or becoming unfit would have been the big ''not this weekend '' reply to all .

Hope it all mends and you become fit again soon ---hope the RN
gives you another joininng date fairly quickly once you are fit

G - Wise advice. But WTD? Cotton wool issues for all on receipt of their joining date? Life is for living, stuff happens, usually at the wrong time....

Soliel - A Big BZ for going the extra mile on this ("only-an-unofficial") excellent website.

dudzRN - Unlike most RR newbies you left it a tad late to seek pre-joining advice, didn't you? 8O :wink:
Here's hoping that you re-gain fitness/entry soonest.
Meanwhile dont forget that No. Nija posted (he's one of our resident Recruiters - on unpaid overtime, again!) and please keep us all at RR informed of your progress.
Oh, and beware of Jo-Jo. He may be along shortly to offer convalescent facilities in his state-of-the-art-sound-proofed cellar - Ignore him :wink:

It's not soundproofed mate; I just live remotely enough to allow the screams to carry.
