Hello all, ive posted this thread in the QUARANC/RAMC section but no joy so far. I recently applied to join the Army, sent off all my forms etc and received a letter this morning informing me that my application should be deferred for 1 YEAR because, wait for it....i had a urinary tract infection (epididimytis-a small infection at the base of the Testicle) about 8 months ago. The infection is gone but i was prescribed antibiotics in June to ensure it would'nt come back. I am in good health and very physically active/fit and have been gearing myself up to go and im now obviously a bit gutted to say the least. I know i can appeal the decision and will because it such a small thing to be deferred for. Has anyone got any advice on appealing or in general, or know of any similar situation that might help me. Any feedback at all would be extremely useful and much appreciated, cheers folks.
