Some Advice required please. My nephew, aged 18 and about to go to University in September, has set his heart on joining the army as an officer afterwards. However, two weeks ago he suffered two fits or seizures on the same day, one at home and one in A&E. Kept in overnight, and subjected to a series of tests and scans, the doctors told him that they were unable to identify any cause and to go away and get on with his life. He has had no previous history of any such event. A visit to a consultant the next week produced much the same advice but included a ban on driving a car for one year AND not to consider going into the Armed Forces or the Police. This last bit has devastated him. I would like to know what the relevant medical standards for recruitment to the Army are and whether there is any automatic ban for seizures even if unexplained. Any advice, or reference to the appriat rules would be welcomed.
