Hro medical (your experiences)


I had my medical on Friday, was in there less than 5 minutes. Asked me one question and done a blood test that was it. Didn’t ask for my gp details, no physical examination, didn’t even take my blood pressure.
Thanks for sharing mate, I’m also a bit concerned over the how much you drink question I’ve heard some people who put even once get their license revoked and have to abstain for 12 months however I think that might be due to drinking misuse of dependancy found in their history.
I am the same i said on questionnaire i last drank 8 units 3 weeks ago and had drank over 8 units twice in last 12 months. hope they do not class this as misuse


hi there can i ask what you put down on medical questionnaire for your last drink and how many units you had ? Thanks
Hi, they filled it out for me. Asked me when I had a drink last and how many it was so I said 5 weeks ago and 3 pints which it was. He then didn’t ask me any other questions cos I just said on the back of that answer that I don’t really drink anymore
Ok bigtom thanks for the reply i have been checking online just going to relax a bit now and let it take its course cheers 🖒
Seems they want my units going bk 3 years is this for real, i was down in march 16 units a week and 20 last year a week in may, but that was noted as alcohol in recomended sensible limits in my doctors reports do u think i will get refused for this ? any reply would be really appreciated .

I had my medical today, received my letter 2 weeks ago. Had to wait about 2 months to receive the letter from applying, probably dsue to COVID. The medical lasted about ten minutes. Had four cans 2 weeks ago, answered no to all questions. Just a waiting game now. They said I should receive news within 3 weeks
