I have been on the phone with capita and the have deemed me temporarily unfit on account of investigating my acne medication(lymecycline, only started taking in past 6 months, acne is mild) and a dislocated shoulder that happened on my 6th birthday, I have full range of movement in my arm and I can to 70 push-ups at time. likelihood of my being declared permanently unfit?

Generally you need to be 3 months clear of acne medication in the case of roaccutane, with shoulders/back clear of the condition, due to load carries and risk of infection. For antibiotics, probably just off prescription.

If it was a one-off dislocation, odds are you'll be OK.

As usual Ninja has nailed it. Based of what you have posted, you should be fine.
