Default Medical form mistake what do I do.?

We received our medical request forms the other day, all the forms are correct except my wifes where they've put my date of birth on it instead of hers

The question is do we have to wait for a new form or can we go ahead with what we have and get them altered

It's the same old story one minute you're up on cloud 9 then the next you're smack back down to groung zero

At least we're heading in the right direction.

Can def confirm that the doctor can make the change (and then sign their name next to the change) - they had put my maiden name on my medical form and the doctor changed it to my married name.

Good Luck!

I had a similur problem, I amended the form and signed it the doctor counter signed it. You will also find somewhere on your CIC letter that you must inform them of any changes, and send in proof of the change like a copy of your passport...

Like the other posters say, make the changes yourself and intial it but you must fax CHC with proof of what it should have been so they can update their records

I filled in the case specific enquiry form on the CIC website as they had put my maiden name on the form and got a reply within 24 hours and new form within a couple of days just in time for my medicals x

Thank's to everyone for your help, I've since spoken to my Consultant and my Doctor and they've confirmed that it's just a matter for the Doc to ammend and sign it.

Meds all booked for 4/6 although my Son who is still in Scotland gets his done on 28/5 at a cost of £100 more than us. shouldn't complain though as we're over the moon just to get the ball rolling

With the meds getting done and sent from two different countrys here's hoping CIC in London don't make any more mistakes.

We had the same problem with our little girl's Medical Form. We just sent an email to the CHC explaining what had happened and they sent a new form out the following day first class. I don't know if it is worth the risk of the doctor just amending it but i could be wrong.
