Firstly this is my first post. So hi. Now given that I am told the government want to increase the numbers of reservists by a factor of two, why are they going out of their way to make things difficult? To put it into context my problem is this. Now rather than being able to go and see the TA unit doctor, to get signed off for training. You now have to fill out a form, take it to your doctor, wait for him to send it back, then it gets sent off for someone else to look at, then if there is anything they don't like they ask for more info or evidence, and the whole joke of a cycle starts again. Now given that the old system used to work, why have they changed it? Are they just trying to make it difficult for people wanting to join or rejoin? Also if anyone knows if I am being lied to and if it is still possible just to go to the army doctor and get cleared or not cleared?
