Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Hi guys. Got my app for re enlistment underway. 203 form goes off shortly. Selection following. However I want to give blood until I re join. Does anybody know if this could have a negative impact on the medical? I have asked my AFCO and they haven't the foggiest. Just wondered.

  2. it wont affect your medical at all but it would be useful if you get a document from the NHS with your blood grouping on it. Request it on your next session. You'd have to provide it at some point anyway and i always advise candidates to go and donate blood to find their blood type anyway.. The AF B203 is going to take some time to clear so dont put anything on hold.
  3. Ok thanks mate. Last time I never needed my blood type. Has it changed now?
