Hi Peter, It's pretty much the same as when you have a medical for a job, i bit more in depth but not much. You have blood tests, chest x-rays and loads of questions but nothing much to worry about unless you have a major long term illness.
I had a far more rigourous medical when i went for my HGV.
Good luck
Andy

Hi,

They measure height and weight, test blood and urine samples, and take a chest x-ray. The doctor has a list of yes/no questions regarding your medical history, checks your blood pressure, listens to your chest, checks your reflexes and prods your tummy.

From what I can gather, they are mainly interested in whether you have any infectious diseases you might give to other people, or a long term illness that is going to be expensive to treat (needing a kidney transplant was one example the doctor gave).

Hope this helps,
James.

Hello Peter,

Have you been told yet how much they are? I was just wondering, someone said they were £200 per adult and £100 per child can you confirm or correct this? If it's true I think I am in the wrong job!

Cheers

Simon

I think it varies depending on where you go. Ours were in Croyden, and it came to just under £500 for two adults and two children.

Cheers,
James.

Cheers James,
I suppose it's something else I'll have to start a jar for, still I think of the greater good, it's just at the begining it is just cost, cost, cost but at least when it is over there is something very worth while to enjoy for the rest of our lives, Reap what you sow I'll have a money tree

Yes, the costs certainly mount up, and up, and up. I'm not sure how some people actually manage to give up and go back to the UK - I'm pretty sure I won't be able to afford to! Scary costs so far: international removals and the quote for transporting the dog with a pet travel company. The removals I can't do much about, but the dog will be travelling with me

All the best,
James.

I know what you mean we are only at the estimate stage so far but PSS think it will be about £3800- £4000 for the full packing and door to door service on a three bed house, but then its about £900 for the insurance, but we think this is a very good price or I have a lot to learn.
