  1. I've got my medical tomorrow. Hoping to make January course.

  2. I've got my medical this Thursday. Should pass that, then it's just a case of waiting for vetting and references. Hoping to make January course as I've applied for Sellafield. 

    How long did you have to wait for results of medical?

      Hi there. You get told on the day unless they refer you to a panel or head of medical. But it only took week to confirm in email too. Good luck.

      Thanks for your reply. Had my medical and passed everything but for one thing. Doctor had a concern with my right hip rotation (something about it being either 20 degrees or 20%, I can't remember which, restricted inwards). so that's being referred to "the Panel", which to be honest is scaring the life out of me. To get this close is just too painful.

      I wouldn't mind, but I weight lift 5 days a week and have done so for a lot years, and until he mentioned it I would never have known. After spending the last couple of nights researching  this it all points to my body being slightly out of line which is easily corrected in a day. I have booked an appointment for this Tuesday to see my GP in the hope that "the Panel" will contact him to be confirmed that there is nothing wrong.

      It's frustrating when I know that I am fitter than most and there is nothing I can do now to convince them.

      If (and I hope to God this doesn't happen) they reject me, will I have to do the whole process again?
