Hi chaps

I've been training with army reserve for last 3 months and my medical came back saying I've been
Rejected as had a splenectomy. Before I joined I phoned on 2 occasions to army recruitment and was assured I can join as my spleen was removed from trauma.

I'm a personal trainer by trade and a fit healthy bloke and Really enjoy the drill
Night training and really want to be in the reserves . I would appreciate any advice from anyone
On medical waiver and the way forward to
Appeal my case.

Cheers

Try your MP and see if they can help, but as the TA now does active service I would nit hold my breath while waiting for a positive response
