I have just got off the phone having had a conversation with the Practice Manager at my parent HQ; in a nutshell, the issue is this - I am P7 MND because the time I was graded I was suffering from a serious medical condition. I have since fully recovered and in line with a DIN published last year am now able to be considered for medical upgrading. I have all the Consultants letters recommennding that I be upgraded but I am unable to find a gateway into the medical system. Apparently, TA personnel no longer fall under the care of the medical centre on the camp to which they are posted/assigned, but I have no access to another RMO because my assignment order is to fill a TA PID at a Regular Bde HQ. The OH specialists at RTMC are supposedly responsible but will only consider this process if I report for mobilisation, but APC Glasgow will only put my name forward to the No. 5 Board if I am medically upgraded first. Talk about Catch 22. And I thought that there was still a requirement for willing TA volunteers to mobilise. Of course, I could just sit back and say 'bollocks to it' because I can't be PAP 10'd and I am in a UK Ops post anyway with no immediate liability to deploy to a theatre overseas. Hell, I could even get promoted, but this doesn't sit easily with me. Can anyone on ARRSE give any sensible advice please?
