I sent a medical appeal with the first page of my updated medical records from my local GP saying my Allergy is resolved and my Asthma is resolved.

I did everything required on the Appeal yet got rejected again for 1. the allergy and 2. the asthma.

It says I can appeal the asthma decision but I need to get tests from an approved clinic for the allergy, if any one could give me advice on what to do next I would appreciate it a lot, the Army's all I really want to do.

As before, you need to provide evidence that the information in your medical records is incorrect or out-of-date. They have told you what is required for the allergy, maybe they need more detail on the asthma? No-one on here can say anything specific because we don't know the details of your conditions or what your GP said.

Sorry I should have said, I told my GP I didn't have asthma or the allergy anymore so they removed it from the front page as I have had nothing on my medical record for years.


this is the message i got:
"You have a clearly documented * allergy, noted to be severe and you have not provided evidence from a clinic approved by the British Society for Allergy and Clinical immunology confirming that you do not have an allergy."

I thought having them both as resolved on my medical record would be enough but they still seem to think I have a severe allergy that only came up once in 2003.

They've told you what you have to do. You have to provide them with evidence from a clinic approved by the British Society for Allergy and Clinical Immunology confirming that you do not have an allergy.

What your GP says means nothing, he's not a specialist, and he's not working to the military health standards.

You saying you don't have a problem isn't the same as it being medically proven that you don't have a problem. Removing conditions from a medical record doesn't alter the fact that you have suffered from them in the past.

You need properly documented evidence. Follow the Army's advice.
