Dear Royal Air Force,

On the form titled "Medical conditions that preclude entry" which is published by the RAF, the musculoskeletal disorders section states:
1. "Most spinal abnormalities"
2. "Most spinal operations"

I would like to find out the conditions that would be included within the disorders stated above.

Furthermore, related to the disorders above, I would like to know the guidance given to medical examiners when encountering an initial/entry officer medical examination with an applicant that has corrective scoliosis surgery via vertibrate fusion but is asymptomatic.

Yours faithfully,
A Williams
