Hello all, I'm not sure whether this has been dealt with anywhere else on the site, but this seemed to be the appropriate forum so thought I would crack on. I am a 20yo male approaching final stages of selection - Army Officer Selection Main Board in one month. Recent injections for a trip to Nepal have led to me having my blood pressure measured, which has come back as slightly high. However GP is 97% certain this rating is due to 'white coat' nerves; i.e. tension inherent in visiting doctors surgery. I am booked in for a blood test and the chances of me having anything remotely wrong with me are very slim. However, just in case, I was wondering if anybody could shed some light on the Army's medical guidelines for accepting candidates with high blood pressure. Mine is in the region of 145/80, is there a cut off point above or below me? I realise this is no substitute for visiting my GP and do not intend it to be, he was unsure of military guidelines hence my enquirey here. I am in no way medically trained and so do not know the implications, but I am very fit - going for a few extra runs would not make a difference to my level of health. Thank you for your help.
