Yes I asked them to make sure that my new application would still use same details as my old one. I got as far as my medical about to be sent to Capita and now I'd like to continue it. After the application they usually call within 1 week.
No you then get booked in for your actual medical which can take months, then they WILL find something wrong during your medical which will take months to sort. Then PJFT, after which your bid is submitted followed by PRNC then Raleigh.
