Medical Question

Discussion in 'Join the Army - Reserve Recruitment' started by crab_air, Mar 29, 2013.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Hi all, just a quick question relating to my application to join the TA. I have served previously in the RAF and received a tier 1 medical discharge last year. Would this make me permanently medically unfit to join the TA? Cheers!
     
  2. Not sure what the crab air tier 1 is but ex regular Army need to be at least Medical Limited Deployable (MLD), phone the recruiting help line a call they might be able to help 0845 600 80 80. Or as per the new 'RPP' recruiting policy is to apply online and then you will be asked to complete an online questionnaire they will then be able to tell you if you are eligible.

  3. Tier 1 would refer to AFPS 05.

    You've been discharged from the Armed Forces on medical grounds. I doubt they will let you in another service, but you can try.
     
  4. Cheers for the reply guys. I'm really hoping I can get back in so all I can do is try and let those in charge decide I guess! If worst comes to worst is there an appeals process I could follow?
