Chilwell deployment medical

#3
full medical,

oh and dont forget the dentist as well. make sure your teeth are in good shape before you go. i'd suggest a check up from your own dentist before you go as the dentist at chilwell wont be willing to do much work depending on the size of your course and if anyone else needs work. If i recall correctly the most theyll do is maybe a filling or two, anything more you'll be sent home

I was so worked up about going to the dentist after my medical that my pressure went up above normal, they wanted to see me again the next day to check my blood pressure.

Oh and dont choke the chicken the night before your medical, as you'll get called back the next day to give another urine sample :oops:

In fact, there is no longer a "dental fail", just a check up to provide the information to allow the acceptance of dental risk, and details taken for forensic purposes.

It is one way of solving the problem of too many people failing the dental inspection - just remove the pass/fail bit! :D

It's amazing isn't it? You'd never guess from looking that he's only had the hormone therapy and not the operation yet. It's the Adam's Apple that's the give away though.

Hello mate,

Chilwell for the first couple of days is a bit of a nightmare, because there didnt seem to be any logic in how we did the round robin, I would advise getting med out of the way first purely because if you get all your kit first then end up getting sent home cos you have wisdom teeth problems or other medical conditions you didnt know about you have to hand it back in and the whole thing becomes a big mess. i knew of a few guys this happened to, it might of changed now to be fair. My advice is to be prepared cos it is in my opinion its a very stressful couple of days.

Right you can t get med out of the way first it depends what group you are put in and where your group/individual is told to go first.

The whole 2 days of processing have now been changed and will run much more smoothly.

As long as your are healthy and fit and not a complete f*****g mong like some we get here you ll get through and be accepted,but be warned you need to be fit to pass the AFT/PFA if not its remedial then if your still shit binned!

Also the weight goes up on the AFT from April with an extra 5 kilos!

Get running!

I'm guessing that he means the ACFT. The ACFT 2 test is a two day event with the 20Km march carrying 30Kg is on the first day. You'll end up doing ACFTs, ICFTs and Swim Tests when you join your battalion as part of pre-deployment anyway.

CFT is now called an AFT.

The dentist is a cunt, no two ways about it. I know of several friends who were mobilised into the Inf with no dramas on the dental front, only to get to their battalion and have to have shitloads of work. There were even blokes who had absolutely gopping teeth that were able to pass, despite doing nothing about it, and then had to basically have a bear trap fitted to their grid at their unit.

And the male South African doctor is an absolute legend, for those Rugby fans out there, he's Bobby Skinstads dad!

Interesting reading this about the medical etc...


Ive been warned off for the pre-med at RTMC. I have recently returned from living abroad since I left regs over 2 years ago and never had the need to have a local GP, seem healthy enough and never had any probs as im in a practical based job. My previous med notes on discharge were scant (trying to find them also) and I have been asked to bring some med history with me for the pre-med.

Question 1: If I turn up at RTMC with no previous med historical notes and no civvy registered GP does it matter?
Question 2: What does the pre-med entail? (Its 2 months before my OPTAG dates).

UNDERSTATEMENT - He certainly knows the score.

As for the RTMC in general: Get yourself in as good a state as you can before you get there:

Medically, physically and especially Dental! (Not forgetting your personal and military admin.)

Since when? Guys I mobbed with paid £1000+s to be dentally fit? Why the change now?
