Default medical in 15 days impossible?

I recently turned 31 and applied online for a 23 month working holiday visa a week before turning, I booked a medical with the only panel doctor in Glasgow and there earliest appointment was at the end of the month and they also said blood test take one week. So I called immigration and said I would need more time to submit the medical. The co emailed me back and said I can have 7 days more with no further extension so till the 29th my appointment is on that day so would still need 7 days after that plus postage.
Is this being reasonable getting a appointment with a normal doctor is hard enough.
I have emailed them to say I need more time.
I can't just get a 12 month visa now as am 31 and would not of been able to extend it anyway.
I tried phoning round Edinburgh but they only have appointments for end of month as well.

I had medical on April 16th n blood tests n X-rays. I then needed to bring all docs back to panel doctor to sign off then he sent it to us. So didn't have medicals delievered until 4 days later. Other places may be different. My blood tests were given to him on 17th.

One thing I realised with immigration there is absolutely no lee-way

Perhaps keep calling and see if they have cancellations.

The co emailed me back and said he wants confirmation or receipt of appointment so hopefully will be ok
