  • I have a suggestion

    I have been using this forum for the past few months and I have noticed that there have been many questions about the medical side of things. Why not have a section on the forum dedicated to medical. Just a suggestion

    I did seem to remember there was either an article or a sticky post on the ENG1 process, or I may just be making it up lol.

    Is a specific forum dedicated to the medical exam and medical issues something everyone feel we'd benefit from?

        There is an article already written by someone on the ENG1 process that links to the official MCA guidance; http://www.officercadet.com/content....Medical-(ENG1)

        None of us are approved MCA medical practitioners thus we shouldn't be giving advice regarding what is / isn't accepted conditions for the ENG1. I don't think a separate forum is necessary or appropriate and we would still receive the same questions since nobody seems to bother using the search function anyway.

          Often the medical questions are asked anonymously. A specific medical section would be unpopular I suspect due to the lack of anonymity.

            If necessary a forum could be made with the option to post annonymously however I would be warey of this as there's a chance it could open the flood gates to many people posting without registering.

            That was the article I was looking for!

            Plus Alistair raises a very good point. We're not really in the position to be giving out medical advise.

            It's a good idea but maybe a designated forum isn't practical.

            I'll have a harder look at some of the threads we have open soon to see if I can delete/move some content to thin out the large number of threads we have on medical issues. I know that there's been comments in the past about how often they recur.

                Ask and admin very very nicely. Offering them beer, spirits, chocolate, etc usually works too....
                I love deadlines. I like the whooshing sound they make as they fly by.....
