Does anyone here have knowledge on medical requirements for infantry soldier in the British Army? I had a gastroscopy a couple of years ago and it was picked up that I have a 2mm sliding hiatus hernia on my esophagus. Would this completely bar me from progressing in selection? I have seen mentions of hernias in medical requirements but it seems a it of a gray area. If it was to be a complete barring is there any way around it at all? When it was picked up in my gastroscopy I wasn't told it was anything to worry about nor that it would need any surgery so it seems pretty low risk from that perspective. Any advice would be much appreciated.
