Recommended Posts

I got told at my Assessment Centre that Aberdeen is where they are desperate for recruits, you shouldn't have to wait too long.

Hi,

I have my medical next week and had a couple of questions.

1. Do they check waist line at all?

2. Any unexpected issues arising?

3. (This is for anyone has asthma or any indication of it) I have an inhaler but no my diagnosed with it, it was only a trial to see if it helps my chest. The doctor has mentioned this on the form. Would this be a problem for me being deferred? I play sports I’m generally fine, chest is good too now.

Any heads up would be good, really hoping to get in for March!

Thanks in advance :)

Hey Harry,

1) They do weight and height first. If this pushes your BMI too high then they will double check your physique with a waist line check. My BMI is fine but the guy before me was in the overweight BMI category and he had to have his waist measured.

2/3) If there is anything on the form they will ask you about it. If it has been brought up by your Dr then they may quiz you a little more about it on the day. Ultimately they will decide, based on the information you have provided if you are medically fit enough for the job. Good luck, hope this helps!

Nice one Harry. Just 5.4 to beat now!! (formality) 

I spoke to Abdn recruitment and my vetting was still ongoing last week, but they have contacted my referees as well.
