Default Anyone had their medicals expire?

Hi
Has anyone had their medicals expire whilst waiting for their PPR's?
We are in the 2007 queue and wandering if our medicals expire (nov 11) could they put us back with the unprocessed files and make us wait until they are ready to look at the 2007 files again?
Thanks

Mine expired (as did 'police cert') while CIC were busy making mistakes, thus delaying everything.

When they finally got things together they "noticed it had expired" and just told me to get a new one.

Yes. What should have taken 6 months and one set of fees took nearly three years and two sets of fees.

Yes, our first medicals expired while waiting for them to make up their minds about our son (who has mild Asperger's). By the time they had made up their minds, we had to get new ones done! Then we were delayed further by the fact that they didn't like the fact that I had had postnatal depression and I had to get a further medical report done (despite it not having been an issue first time round!). As you can see from my time-line, we got PPR about 3 months later - and landed in May this year!!

There are two main causes for medicals expiring before a case can be approved. Furtherance requests are probably number one while lengthier than expected background checks are number two. The present computer-based processing system brings "late" cases to an officer's attention in good time but cannot affect further medical delays which are in the hands of the medical department and background checks which lie with another unit altogether. From the outside it can look like confusion but it seldom is.

Thanks for your reply. From your experience do you think its still possible to have everything sorted before the meds expire at the begining of Novemember. Thanks. I bet you get asked so many questions being a retired visa officer!
