They are generic medical standards across the Naval Service but it's worth bearing in mind standards and regulations do change. The RN & RM sometimes operates single-service policies in some areas so the only way to be certain is to apply to the respective service and see what they declare.
They are all based on JSP950 but the RN/RM tend to be more risk averse with lower limb issues than say, the Army. ACL reconstruction being a case in point.@Ninja_Stoker Do all three services tend to follow the medical standards to the same extent? Or, as a random example, is it the case that the Royal Navy/ Royal Marines are less liberal when judging musculoskeletal injuries than the Army or RAF, despite officially using the same standards.
Nasal deformity ? sufficient to interfere with breathing apparatus and similar devices
Hopefully @The guide or @CHUB! can advise.Does anyone know if this applies for a deviated septum (I’m assuming it does). Also, would the procedure to fix the deviated septum (due to a physical accident) bar/deny entry?
What's involved in the Beighton Test? And how is it passed/graded?
As long as you are fully recovered, treatment free & have a decent training diary on strava or similar to show there's been no recurrence, you should be OK.
Can anyone tell me what would the medical team deem as a high blood pressure? Mine sits around 130/60 normally but that’s after a days work. I did a reading today on an empty stomach and it was actually sitting at 125/65.
Thanks for the reply,As long as you are fully recovered, treatment free & have a decent training diary on strava or similar to show there's been no recurrence, you should be OK.
No point joining with a niggle because otherwise it'll get worse during training.
Orthotic insoles incidentally, are no longer a bar to entry.
