welcome to the site Mr Walker, good luck with your TVP medical

I went to Oxford a few years ago for a TVP medical (and failed it) :sloop:

I Recently redid my medical with Avon and Somerset, since jan 2010 they take a sample or 2 samples of hair on request of the applicant. i asked the nurse and the pee is to check the amount of protein or something.

I can confirm that my medical with TVP did NOT result in them cutting out a large chunk of hair lol.

They took urine and tested it, that was all.

The OHU in Kidlington is just like a doctors surgery, don't worry!

Got my medical with TVP in a few weeks, has anything changed since last replies??? I had a medical for Kent many, many years ago and passed that so am not overly worried. However any advice on what to expect would be greatly appreciated. Thanks! :slwo:

Passed my medical, nothing too major although shocked by how bad my eyesight is getting! Tested both distance and reading (where mine seemed particularly bad!), then also did hearing test, lung capacity (two tests), urine test (health and drug-tested), plus my height, weight and BMI checked/calculated also. Followed by appointment with Doctor to discuss any medical concerns, etc. but was told then I had passed.

So just have fitness test to come now, which have planned for couple weeks from now.......
