Heart murmer

#1
Hi i go for soldier selection on monday and have heard alot about people getting deffered wit heart murmers. I got diagnosed with 1 when i was born but then tests showed that it was innocent. I was just wondering if there was anything i could take with me to prove that, or if they might have it on record already. Any help would be appreciated cheers spiny.

In the same situation fella. I've had a word with the doctor and hes referring me to cardiologist, because I rasied my concern with it. Get the OK from him, it will be logged on med forms and that should be that.

I would expect that the examining doctor will refer you to a specialist, any docs you may have would be useful to bring, might help speed up a otherwise lengthy process.

Yeah I would suggest getting this sorted before you have to make a lengthy trip to ADSC then get sent back home because of a bastard heart murmur. Took me 4 hours to get there on train was in the medical room for about 2 hours then got sent back home same day, couldnt believe it, I was so ARRSED off.

Guy I was in with had a none specific heart murmur. But it had to be checked out . He ended up WO2 and had no bother with BFT or CFT.

As long as the dicky ticker doc signs it off as not a problem. You'll be fine.
