Differences in pre entry medical standards amongst services

The request was successful.

Dear Royal Air Force,

I have read through medical conditions that preclude entry for recruits. I am interested in the part that talks about ‘Anxiety symptoms within the last 12 months, if more than 1 will require assessment by the RAF medical staff’.

I am interested in joining the raf however this statement does not apply to me so I could be eligible for entry. However I have had two separate episodes of anxiety on my medical records which the last one was four years ago. They did not go on longer that 12 months. Do you follow the same JPS 950 leaflet as the other military services for entry on this condition?

Yours faithfully,

Miss S Brewster
