Smile Medical Examinations

Hi

I haven't posted any questions on this forum before, although I read it regularly. My husband applied for PR visa in November 2003 and we have just received a letter with some forms asking us to go for medicals. I have 2 daughters, one who sometimes suffers from mild asthma and has a very slight eye abnormality that is monitored by a consultant, but she has never received any treatment or medicines for this condition. Friends have told me not to mention this as it will just complicate matters. Can anyone advise me?

Thanks in advance

Many posters will tell you that as long as the condition you have does not burden the authorities then you shouldn't have a problem. You will have to take an eye test though. Tell them what you must...But I kinda liken it to taking a car for an MOT...You don't say this and that may be wrong...You let the inspector find Any problems, and anything serious will be found, They look foor TB on the xrays, you have a blood test, and give a urine sample, body checked over.

I'm sure that you are worrying Toooooooo much....You'll all be fine.
Best wishes

hmmmm well i agree with *frankieforehead*....also...if she doesn't have medical treatment for her condition then i don't think it needs mentioning, and if it did come up it doesn't sound like it could be a problem. Because there is no burden on health insurance for treatments.
I think it is improbable to think that everyone who immigrates is in perfect health...*S*....good luck..and relax....*S*

This is correct, but they do a visual eye test (reading off the letter chart on wall) and check eyes pretty thoroughly using scope thingy - so not sure if this will come up in test/check ? But, yes, any probs, least said the better

Yes, if they don't pick it up or if they don't ask general questions relating to the condition, then no need to tell them.

Best of luck.

I will recommend not to mention anything as it will definitely complicate matters. Let the doctor figure out.

Thanks, good point, I see that you applied around the same time as us, was the doctor that you used in Knightsbridge good? I rang one in Winchester as it was nearest to me and was told that I had to wait 2 months!!! for an appointment and had to arrange and go for the x rays and blood tests in advance at the local hospital. I really was looking for somewhere to get everything done at once.

Thanks

Default Re: Medical Examinations

As a designated medical practitioner they are legally & contractually obliged to offer you an appointment within 10 days. I would actually let CIC know this as it doesn't reflect well on their status as approevd practitioners.

Ours were able to offer appt within 5 working days (Altrincham & Manchester).

Rich.

We were told the same thing by the Winchester doctor, which was why we decided to have our medicals done in Canada instead. Most of the places appear to be quoting a month or two to be seen.

Really Good...Results back in a couple of days...Courier sent results from doctors to CHC...They also said that if there was any problems they would tell us first, and we could decide if the results should go off....And it's just a stones throw away from Harrods.
Also they allow you to go in with your children, so if they ask any awkward Q's...You'll be there to answer them.

Great, thanks, rang them today and they said about 2 weeks for next apppointment, so that is much better. And the kids will enjoy a trip to Harrods afterwards!
