JSP 346

#1
Hi, I am looking for a little bit of help/guidance here from anyone with medical experience from the Army.

This year I was refused commissioned entry to the Royal Navy because I suffered from clinical depression when I was 15 years old which lasted approximately a year and a half. It said on the letter that the Naval Consultant Psychiatrists interpretation of JSP 346 made me permanently unfit for Naval Service.

I have just applied to the Army in the Royal Corps of Signals (other ranks) and I am about to get my medical questionnaire filled in by my doctor. If I failed for the Navy am I likely to fail for the Army? Please be honest.

Its not impossible that another service psychiatrist will disagree with the first (they do that a lot), but the fact that you have been medically rejected by one service doesn't help your chances I'm afraid. If you don't declare this, then you would be classed as a fraudulent entry. Sorry to be the bearer of bad tidings.
