  1. Hi, I'm getting a bit worried cause ACIO sent off my completed RG8 form a month ago and I'm still waiting for the all clear so I can move onto next stage. How long have other folk been waiting for? Cheers Sam
  2. RG8s are taking a bit longer at the moment especially if at ADSC Pirbright so expect around 4-8 weeks, it then depends if medical suitable or if they need Further Information. Worth just asking your Recruiter if theres any news yet (they can at least say if its waiting for SMO to look at it or if any letters are on the way/being typed for you.
  3. Thanks Iron, i phoned recruiter onThursday last week and he said it was marked as referral, is that what it should say or does referral mean that they are referring back to g.p etc?
    Thanks again
  4. You will more than likely be getting a letter to you and GP explaining all in next few weeks.
