Waiting for interview?

#1
Right on the 2nd of December 06 I did my barb test, told my recruter that I was taking my medical forms to my doctor in the following monday. I was told they will get in-contact with me when i need to come in for a interview once they have had the medical forms back.

How long does this usually take as its nearlly been 2 months.

I am going to call them next friday to see whats happening.

It could be that your doctor hasn't sent your medical form off yet.

I would give your doctors surgery a ring and ask them first - I had no end of trouble with mine... wanting payment beforehand etc...

If everything is okay there, then give your recruiters a call...

very true thats what happened with me, dont make my mistake by not contacting your doctor, my medical forms took 6 MONTHS!!! all because my doctor hadnt sent them off and lost them, and didnt think of contacting me so i had to give her more forms which she got paid for again! if i was you i would contact your doctor, my application took 8 months but other cases only take about 3 months its really varied
GOOD LUCK!

it seems doctors are lazy c*nts judging by all the posts i have read thats why i followed the advice that the guys gave on here and got my doctor to fill out my medical when i was there.

Unfortunately in my civvie life since leaving I can tell of several tails of the staff at Doctor's surgeries acting like little fooking Hitler's.. They really are a law unto themselves...

Get the Admin side of your surgery to GET A FOOKING GRIP... Usually a visit and a request to see the senior partner in the practice is usually good enough... fooking troll's!!

It took my doctor about 20 minutes to do my forms. I don't think he is supposed to send them to AFCO you know, he just claims his money, you take the forms back yourself, well that's what I did. I just sat in his office thing and he filled them in.

Same happened to me I dropped my medical forms in to my doctor and it was takin ages for this "interview" to be arranged, I rang the recruiting office and they told me they hadnt got my medical forms back yet so I went berserk with my doctor for messing about, they sent them off eventually then I got my interview, but you do have to keep the recruiting office on there toes at time, constantly harrass them, I ring all of the time asking what the hold up is on different things. They told me one day I needed to see a specialist doctor, so I was waiting for an appointment to see one, and then after a month I rang and asked what was happening, they told me I didnt even have to see a specialist, I was gutted just missed a taking in point aswel cause of that. Just keep ringing up mate

Today I phoned up the careers office. the doctors had contacted them on the 8th jan for a payment form one was then sent out. Phoned up the doctors asking if they had sent the questionare and no, they dont have it only the payment form.

so they have lost the questionare and it took them over 1 month to ask for a payment form.

has anyone ever taken the form to the doctors and waited for it to be filled in then taken it back to the afco?

I sat there with my doctor and insisted i sent them off, thats what the recruiter said and today i got my letter for first interview.

When i took my forms into doctor i sat with him while he filled them out and took them off him again, not advised to leave your forms with your doctor as it will take ages (they end up under all there other paper work and they forget lol) Took my medi form in to careers office and they said it takes about 3 week for them to prosses the forms and then they will contact me. it was only 2 weeks then they called and i have 1st interview in 3 weeks time

Good luck to all

My doctor was a time wasting cnut too. I went and sat in the surgery and pestered the staff until I had them in my hand that day.
That was 8 weeks ago, and now i'm waiting for Glasgow to release my medical docs from previous service before I can get my second interveiw.

IT's the Army lot's of hurry up and wait.
