Hey, regarding your ulcerative colitis, my friend has crohns disease and i think she was classed unfit.

if you log onto the CAA website it gives you full requirement.
Here's the part I think would interest you...

(a) Cabin crew members with any sequelae of disease or surgical intervention in any part of the digestive tract or its adnexa likely to cause incapacitation in flight, in particular any obstruction due to stricture or compression, should be assessed as unfit.
A fit assessment may be considered following satisfactory treatment and recovery.
(b) Cabin crew members should be free from herniae that might give rise to incapacitating symptoms.
(c) Cabin crew members with disorders of the gastro-intestinal system, including:
(1) recurrent dyspeptic disorder requiring medication;
(2) pancreatitis;
(3) symptomatic gallstones;
(4) an established diagnosis or history of chronic inflammatory bowel disease; or
(5) after surgical operation on the digestive tract or its adnexa, including surgery involving total or partial excision or a diversion of any of these organs may be assessed as fit subject to satisfactory evaluation after successful treatment and full recovery after surgery.

So I have hot my medical coming up and on the section of the questionnaire, it asks you to tick if you have or have ever..... The only one will be say yes to is admitted to Hospital. You then have to explain why. So 1st time was 10 and had my tonsils removed. 2nd time had my son in hospital age 20 and 3rd time had a blockage removed from my kidney in 2009. It then says you need a medical report and letters from your consultant to your Doctor and to bring these with you. Has anybody else had a similar situation to me where the operations were long ago? Did you get the information from your Doctor?

Also I checked my immunisation record last night online and some of the infections I had at school such as TB are not on it, how do I go on about getting this information.

Kind regards

Yes you have to sign a waiver to give them access to your medical records and I had to pay my GP £29.50 for a letter explaining the 3 occasions in my life that I have been admitted to hospital. You then also have to take with you a full immunisation report.

Hi all,

I have my medical tomorrow but I have not received my employment number or contract in the post yet. It says to take your employment number with you to the medical.

Can anyone see this being a problem. The medical email said my employment number would follow in the post and it has been a week and it hasn't arrived.

Has anyone had experience with this.

Thanks guys

Hi everyone,

What is the dress code like for the medical/uniform/security interview appointment? Is it smart or casual or a bit of both, like would jeans be acceptable?

A friend is asking it you need to get in underwear and, if yes, if you can have your thighs on?
