Hi all, I was just wondering for those who've had to resit assessment days as they medical expires after one year, are your past medicals still used/ looked at for consistency with your new ones? I had previously reported I wheezed once after running in the past 12 months and was required to see a GP to follow up on it but physc dqed me for 12 months before I got to it. Thing Is I misreported it, when I saw my GP he showed me what a 'wheeze' actually was and it was not what I experienced, mine was simply laboured breathing as I was out of breath and low on stamina at the time. Im not sure if I should note this again on my medical history as I'm not sure if they use past medicals at all, but if they do id rather do the testing now and be cleared so my application is more up to date when the time comes. Thanks.

Regardless of if they do or not, if they cross reference it or they don't, you've covered yourself by seeing the doc and getting clarification, so fill out your questionnaire accurately and deal with any fallout if it occurs.
