Waiting for an appointment with the SC

Hi, i started my recruitment process about 5 months ago now. i have passed my aptitude test and medical but because i have a metal plate in my ankle i need the Surgeon Commander to inspect it. it has been quite a while now and i still have not received an appointment yet. has anybody been through this? if so how long roughly did it take? and what was the outcome?

Sadly there seems to be a backlog of medical referrals - apparently due to the increase in applications & a shortage of administrative personnel.

Possibly a letter sent direct to your local AFCO Medical Examiner to enquire whether there has been any progress, may help expedite your application.

A 5 month wait is nothing short of appalling - A letter of complaint to your local MP generally speeds things up a bit too.

Good luck.
