    Re: ENG1 Medical

    It depends on what you mean by history.....If you have chronic condition then probabley, if you mean you've had your tonsils out and apendix removed then not really.

    They ask about fits / seizures / epilepsy, small amount of family history as some stuff is hereditary.

    So without knowing what's up then hard to give a good answer

    No I do not report things from here to them as they are quite able to come and read this stuff for themselves.

        If you're talking about drugs, there is NO place in the MN for recreational drug users. Many drugs show up months after taking them and would result in dismissal/refusal of your application.

          JustPondering,
          If it was a while ago (i.e. more than a few months) then should be ok, in any event you're not tested for drug use at your ENG1, but you might be at your company specific medical, if you have one at all.
          Don't worry about it - you're not the first bloke to have gone a bit daft and you won't be the last!

            I don't recall any mental health questions. The doctor just assumes that you are crazy for wanting to embark on a career at sea. :-)

            I have never been tested for drugs.

              Although I am not condoning drug use Steamer, drug detection periods (assuming they are urine tests not hair) range from a day anything up to a week, not months. Just wanted to get the facts straight

                  Acording to something I read a while back, thats debatable. An average user is said to be about a month (someone who smokes more or less everyday), an recreational user (which most people who take the drug would fall into) is said to be around 4-7 days.

                  In any case its definitely not months.

                    Any way-regardless of how long it stays in your system...drugs are a total no no.

                          just wondering how the drug testing works, i know it can randomly happen at college but what about while at sea? or even on leave? also for the record i dont do drugs-well you could argue about alcohol but i dont abuse it so this is just out of curiosity lol

                            Something else to point out, we also have no place in the MN for folks with serious mental health problems.

                            If you have ever had a mental health issue, best discussing it with the doc at the ENG1.
                            I love deadlines. I like the whooshing sound they make as they fly by.....

                              I wouldn't say its serious, more of a miss understanding and mistake that has made its way onto my medical records. But at the end of the day, rules are rules and there for a reason. Thanks for the replies guys.
