I'm 31 and very much want to join the forces.

The problem is, I have a few medical issues which may or may not be an issue at a medical. Aside from these issues I am fit and healthy, good BMI, good bodyfat, ran a marathon last year, gym 5 times a week etc.

The medical issues are:

  • Fractured femur (2004) - repaired with a metal pin which is still in place. Causes me no issues at all. I have ran a marathon, squatted 100kg+ etc etc, it has no impact on my at all.
  • Fatty liver (causes no issues at all)
  • Enlarged spleen (causes no issues at all)
  • Enlarged kidney (causes no issues at all)
Basically, I am wondering whether the medical standards between the army, navy and RAF are the same or vary? I am pretty sure in the army medical that having a fracuted femur with metalwork is an automatic "NO" to entry (I am hoping this is not true and that each person is judged on a case by case basis).

Is it the same for the RAF and navy?

Will I be judged on a case by case basis or is it an automatic no re the fractured femur repair?
