The recruitment numbers for the British armed forces are far to under achieved. This is due to Capita being in control of recruitment & making it so hard for men & women of all ages to get through for selection. My son is a fit young man who has been given a clean bill of health by his gp & dentist. His application was turned down 3 times due to him having hayfever, prescribed an inhaler during the summer due to a wheeze because of hayfever. He also, at 5yrs & 2 months old he was admitted to hospital & recieved nebulizers & this was the latest reason for him being turned down. 

Surely if a doctor says you are healthy enough you should be allowed to at least be in for selection  & be allowed to go for training, then be seen by a medical professional to determine if you are fit & healthy! I have heard of boys being turned away because of dental treatment needed but they have had to have some sedation, gas & air is included in this. I feel the selection process should be changed.
