I'm interested in joining the raf as a supplier and hope to start the process later this year.The only thing I'm worried about is the medical.
I had a hand injury about 6 years ago,where I cut the tendons in my fingers.My fingers are fine now,and were back to normal after surgery all except my little finger.I am unable to straighten this finger and it is permanently bent.It doesn't effect me doing anything and most people don't even notice it.I'm just concerned whether I'd fail the medical because of this or whether they would even check for this.
Anyone have any idea about this?

They will see it on your medical record as well as presumably on your hand during the medical. It is almost certainly something that they will have to look at in detail and make an individual judgement on your case. It depends whether there is any problem with you handling a weapon, wearing gloves, getting arthritis in the future etc. Only the military doctors can make a judgement on that and the only way to find out is to apply and take the medical.
