Hello CJ,

Welcome to PRMC.

The medical comprises an eye test (contracted out), hearing test, colour perception test, blood pressure & heart, lungs, height, weight, urine & previous medical history check.

The following has been lifted from the RN Website:

The Armed Forces require anyone who joins to be medically fit to serve worldwide. New entrants to the Armed Forces undergo intensive training which is physically demanding and mentally taxing. New entrants must be of a robust constitution and free from disease or pre-existing injury to meet this challenge. If you do decide to apply and your application is accepted, you will be required to pass a full medical examination. Your application will be rejected if you fail to meet the minimum acceptable medical standard for entry. Before a Medical Officer examines you, you are asked to declare certain information about your medical history to identify obvious medical conditions for which rejection is automatic. Please note that your application will be rejected if:
You suffer from Epilepsy You suffer from Diabetes You suffer or have suffered from Asthma in the past four years You suffer from Colitis, Crohns Disease, or any other long standing bowel disorder or have had your spleen removed You have ever had a detached retina or corneal transplant You suffer from Rheumatoid Arthritis, or any other bone or joint disordersThe above list is not exhaustive and you may find that your application is rejected due to other medical conditions, not listed, but which are subject to the discretion of the examining doctor or Service Medical Authorities.


Hope this helps & good luck

Ninja_Stoker - I see you put down colour perception test. Is this done at the main medical or should it have been done at the eye test stage? As I wasn't asked to do anything like that which is unusual as I've had several forces related eye tests and every time they test that!

Cheers

Matt

The Colour Perception test is officially taken & graded during your AFCO medical examination, although I note that some opticians actually give an additional colour perception test when you have an eye test- equally some don't.

The colour perception test that is recorded is the one through your AFCO Medical Examination, not the Optician unless they have been specifically contracted by your AFCO.

Check you hearing using hearing test.
Check your height and weight against a BMI chart.
check reflexes.
Check for flat feet.
Check for problems with your spine.
Check that you still have your cock and balls (yes you get naked).
Check your heart.
Check for asthma.

That's all I can remember.

No you get the cup and cough treatment from the Doc to check for any problems. You will also have a urine test.

Also take your doctors details with you.

Luckily i had a women doctor.
you just strip down to your boxers, get up onto the bed, then the doc comes up and you pull your boxers own, so its not like your walking about the room with your dingaling out, and its about 5-10 seconds they check so it aint that long.

Just pray you never have to go for an STI check-up. Last time I went for an STI check-up the guy grabed my cock, then took something that looked like a long cotton wool bud and jabbed it right down my piss tube! He then seemed to grip it and pull it out at a rapid pace... thought I was bleeding inside... I'm still not sure which STI that was a check for!?

It was a very traumatic experience! Moral of the story, don't shag glamour models without wearing a hat!
