Medical advice please

#1 Post by skyodp »


I am at university studying operating department practice and ive always wanted to join the forces but was turned down previously as I had cancer as a teenager as wasnt in remission long enough when i applied.

Its now been long enough to reapply 10 years and I want to join as a operating department practioner at raf lyneham but there is a catch I have had a inhaler last year ive never been diagnosed with asthma and never had an attack! will this mean waiting another 3 years on top of the 8 ive already waited ?

Are the rules different if i apply to go in as a officer after my degree ?

advice welcome

Thank you

sorry if i am posting twice im interesed in TA's aswell and unsure if it would be different for them

Why did you have an inhaler if you've never been diagnosed with asthma, or ever had an attack?
You can have peace.
Or you can have freedom.
Don't ever count on having both at once.
The life that I have
Is all that I have
And the life that I have
Is yours
