Default Medical & Chest x-ray forms

Need some advice , just started filling in the medical and chest x-ray form (NZIS 1007) and on the second page (section B) it says that the section needs to be completed in front of a medical examiner ...OMG i've never heard of that before, normally they want it done so examination can be over and done with before the inks dry on the cheque.

Does the doctor actually sit there while you fill it out?
There'll be four of us going for the medical (2 adults, 2 children) so we're talking loads of hanging about .

What experiences have others had...would really like to hear how you found whole experience of medicals etc

thanks Mandie

mmm...my tip is dont stress over it (not like us)!
was told to fill forms in before we went to save time.....
also my blood pressure was too high and it is never above normal, but that was caused by Lardy MkIII (aged 15months) sticking fingers in socket outlet and attempting to climb into a yellow bin bag ---- once he had left the room the pressure fell ---- phew.
also if the kids are poorly and you are tempted to cancel on their behalf - dont - we did and found that we should have gone ahead with the adults to get the blood tests through as they take time (14 days ish) and adults may need further tests....young kids dont and they are pretty straighforward.

Thank you...i'm not really stressing too much over it but was surprised when it said to fill in form part b in front of medical examiner, i've never heard of this before as you say they normally want you to fill it in before hand to save time.
thanks for advice

Our chest x rays were £100 for 2 of us and medicals were £680 for 2 adults and 3 kids - we have managed to claim some of it back through private health insurance but not much.

Same-same as meds. Three months from the date that the police authorities mail 'em out.
