    It'll depend almost entirely on medical suitability to re-enter. Approval to be processed to re-enter can be turned-around in less than 4 weeks.

    The Senior Medical Officer (Service Entries) will state whether or not the medical criteria is met or whether there's a mandated recovery period to ensure he's fully recovered. A training diary from the outset = good.

    Ultimately your local AFCO will be best placed to advise on the selection elements that need to be repeated prior to re-entry but my guess is not many will need repeating.

    Hi @Nurse75 so glad your boy’s ok now must be a relief but very frustrating so I hope he’s back in a troop as soon as possible and reapplication is a pain free process x
