    The rough rule of thumb is you need to be 12 month clear of treatment. Pins & plates can be an issue.

    Hijacking this thread - 12 months clear of treatment, does treatment mean surgery ? I broke my wrist back in January and am hoping to get 2019 batch.

    Didn't have surgery and wrist has healed fine. Do you think Capita will be weird about it @Ninja_Stoker ?

    On the face of it, it does not sound like a show-stopper for the 2019 YO entry unless there were complications or restrictions, post recovery.
