I've been a PCSO with Merseyside for over 7 years and recently had a medical for role of Constable with the same Force....full of a cold I was!! And the results didn't meet the requirements. The Doctor at OHU advised me o get over my cold and return for a further test.
I passed that with flying colours (practically perfect) but the Doctor refused to pass me based on previous results, including my CSO medical from over 7 years ago which showed slight hearing loss.
I have now been referred to a private ENT specialist and my result have once again come back as 'borderline'. I had to restart the test twice as the Nurse ***swearing removed*** me for pressing the button when there was no noise coming through (I swear in that booth I hear beeps all the time!!!) and suffice to say was a nervous wreck as this means so much to me.
I've got to go back to OHU next week wit my latest results, but I have no idea what their decision will be, and if it's a 'no' I'm wondering if I even have grounds for appeal? I hope the last 7 years count for something at least. If anyone has any similar experiences or advice to offer I would really appreciate it.
