Medical query

#1
Hi, I'm new to the site so forgive me if I've posted this in the wrong place. I applied to join the Army last year but was deferred for 3 years on medical grounds. Does anyone knows the Army's stance on possibly reducing the deferral period? Is there any way round it?

Any help is much appreciated.
Thanks, JP

Jonny,

I suggest you return to your local ACIO with the letter of deferral, and ask.

However, the Army wouldn't have given you a 3 year deferral without good reason, and after consultation with a specialist.

You can go to a civvy specialist, if everything is OK get a letter stating this and get it forwardedto the RSC medics. (Sometimes the RSC medical staff can be over zealous) you can ask for a 203 Special Enlistment authority on medical grounds. The most common cause of deferal is usually people filling in their medical questionaire incorrectly by putting every cough/ cold / ache and pain on there thus making them seem like a leper.
