Hi Mark

We have used both, no problems. Doctor at the Elms is lovely.
I unfortunately failed my medical because of my BMI, and have just
had a new medical last week (just awaiting results)

Any questions, dont hesitate to get in touch.

Hi Mark,
MOH was 36 I was lower.

My application has been referred for more reports (more expense!)
Hubby having lost 2 stone [not requested] in anticipation of NZIS knocking him back- has had no referral and appears well pleased
I now have to wait for docs report on recent conditions and some over 10 years old!
To save extra expense of coming back for fasting blood tests- we fasted before medicals. It worked- they did say we would be billed for extra blood tests but we never were. Had we had to re-book another session we would have been!! so it's worth fastng before meds.
don't worry- everyone seems to report that it was a pleasant experience and
the medics go out of their way to put you at your ease.

Hi Mark,

My BMI was very high 50 (no other health issues), when I went for my
new medical I have got it down to 37.8

Keeping everything crossed. My oh starts his job in Auckland early February.

Hi guys.

I'd suggest starting a thread in the main forum about Rangiora where more people are likely to see it when they drop in. Several folks living around Rangiora post to BE .
