Copy of the medical requirements for entry

#1
Good evening

I am and ACF instructor I have had a cadet who is 17 years old ask me about the TA. She has asthma, I have said she may want to approach the nearby TA unit. However its 15 miles away and I told her I would see if I could get the medical requirements and see if she is eligable first.

I remember when I was in the TA (a while back now) that the med requirements were different, however with an increase in op tempo I wasnt sure if this had changed. Which is why when she said can I join the TA with a bit of asthma I didnt say go for it.

She can't join...TA is the same as the army...she needs to be free from an inhaler for more than 4 years and various other doctors recommendations.

I am in the process of applying for the TA. Im a qualified and experienced Emergency Nurse. I had my medical tonight and have been told I may have failed due to an abnormal smear test last September. Had a punch biopsy which came back negative. Why would this lead to a fail in a medical?
