PULHHEEMS left and right?

Discussion in 'Professionally Qualified, RAMC and QARANC' started by polar, Jan 8, 2007.

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. If hearing or eyes was 2 1, does that mean right is 2 and left is 1?

    i.e. its not the obivous way around.


    p.s. JSP 346 seems to imply the above
  2. It's been awhile, but as I remember it-

    P- Physical Capacity (Overall assessment for employability)
    U- Upper body (Upper limbs, back, abdo strength plus organs working correctly or not)
    L- Lower limbs
    H- Hearing
    E- Right eye
    E- Left eye
    M- Mental capacity (Intelligent/no but can lift heavy weights)
    S- Emotional stability

    May be a bit rusty, but I seem to remember that, although the eyes are recorded separately, the Hearing assessment takes the 'worst' score i.e. if the right ear is worse than the left then that one is recorded as 'H'. Having said that, I do remember recording both ear's scores on the FMed 1 and 143(?) many moons ago.

    If I remember, I'll ask the guru at work tomorrow.
  3. Sorry, didn't answer your question directly. You are correct for the eyes in that the right one comes first. God knows why. Maybe because it's most peoples' sighting (as in bang bang) eye?
  4. thanks..

    Thats the same as the software I was using.
  5. Neuro

    their has been two H's in PULHHEEMS for a good few years now

    I always remember - as in drill 'by the right'
    Right followed by left
  6. You're right. I'm a bit out of date, but a check with the Immortal Ascended Hidden Masters of Service Medical Admin confirms that hearing for both ears is recorded seperately nowadays.
