Medical Exam

Post by D1DDY »

Hi I just wondered if anyone else had a problem with their hearing test within the medical stage?

I was told my left ear wasnt as good as my right, so got the all clear off my doctor and have now been asked to do it again.

I have just passed my medical and fitness test last week but now thinking negative thoughts about this.

Cheers

Hi Joe

No, they said I passed my medical and fitness. But I was full of flu and they wanna check my hearing again. I suppose it affects your ears nose and throat when ya bunged up. Thing is they said they are selecting the final candidates this week??

Does that mean i could still get turned away after all this time??? Im not sure :slead:

I think it differs from constabulary to constabulary, but what happened to me personally was that when I was on the bank or waiting list I kept getting pushed back, and I was wondering why! So I phoned up the recruitment team who were extremely nice and asked. Apparently people who applied before you get picked first regardless of whether they have done there medical or not. So In your situation depending on where you are on the list you should be ok. Let me know how you get on! If you don’t mind me asking which constabulary are you applying for? :slby:

I probably did after my medical; they started doing drugs testing in January 2010 apparently. They look for the usual (cannabis, cocaine ect ect) hey took enough hair to make a wig! Only joking it was a tiny bit.

Go with a pair of Magnum Classics mate.

I've had my current pair for nearly 3 years and they're as good now as they were when I bought them.

They comfortable, smart and at 45 notes good vaule too.

I've been buying my kit from there when i've been doing security. Definately worth anose around.
