    Ask and admin very very nicely. Offering them beer, spirits, chocolate, etc usually works too....

    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.

    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.

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

    started a topic I have a suggestion

    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
