    I’m sure I read somewhere if you have more than 5 things on *text deleted* medical record it’s a PMU. Am I misinformed or is this correct?

    Not correct ,it depends on what those conditions are and where they sit / fall under the JSP 950.

    I don’t sorry, I will look though as I’m intrigued to find it. I’m adamant I’ve seen it somewhere

    I do remember there was a limit to the number of attempts undertaken when writing to your GP but as @The guide states, it depends what the ailments are. Statistically, if you have a lot of issues on your medical records, there's a higher probability something will be a show-stopper.

    Possibly @CHUB! can remember a previous mandated maximum number of issues, but I can't recall it.

    That’s good to hear, I have more than 5 things on my medical records but I’m sure most people do too. Is it worth applying but declaring that I intend to defer my application upon passing the medical?
