I am not aware that the Army considers "family medical history". IMHO, the Army will only consider your medical history.

No as Litotes says you are asked if any of your family suffers from heart problems, diabetes and something else on the RG8 (health questionairre) but not specific questions about family. Your GP fills out the other bits from your med records, can be done in front of you. Your Recruiter will issue them once you start an application and done your BARB and MOD(Bath) pays the bill.

Recruiter explins the forms to you.

the medical forms you take to docs may require more info about your family history depending on the question like heart condition diabetes ect.. the medical is all about YOU being fit to serve

Do you think it would be worth lying on the forms if it asks me if my family has diabetes? Because my dad has it and if they then decide to ask for more info on my dad's medical records then they'll find out he has Huntington's Disease, which is genetic and there's a chance that I could get it. Which im sure they would reject me for.

Telling lies on your medical application could result in you being discharged from the services if you get in! So probably not the way to go around your application - best thing you can do is be honest and see what they say!

My youngest is trying to join.

Because his grandmother died at 43 of a heart attack, they could not continue with his application until he had a blood test saying everything ok.

My eldest is in already and he as a heart murmur. The army doctor checked this out, so maybe it has changed in the 2 years he has been in.
