I've got my medical tomorrow. Hoping to make January course.
Still not heard anything. I'm beginning to wonder if it's all been a waste of time.
What I don't understand is that all vacancies are still on going. To me that signifies that they are crying out for officers and yet I've done everyhing and more to prove my worth and I feel like I'm being ignored. I've never known an employer like it.
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?

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?
It' been somewhat of a saga.
After my medical I immediately booked to see my GP the following Tuesday. GP confirmed my suspicion that my hip rotation was muscular and not skeletal. Anyway, had an x-ry which came back all clear, nothing wrong at all. Had my ears irriated and there's nothing wrong with my ear drums (which I knew).
Asked my surgery to email findings to CNC. Up until Monday, I hadn't heard anything. Phoned CNC OH and discovered that they hadn't received anything. Back to surgery who insisted that they had sent them but did say that they would resend the reports. Back to the CNC and this time they have received it. I asked how long would it take before I knew where I stood. I explained that I've been waiting 6 weeks. OH apologised for the delay and said that somehow I've been missed, and that I should hear something within the week.
I was also told that vetting is being done as we speak, so hopefully I may still make the 2nd January date.
