Cost of health checks, x-rays etc.
 
Hi

A migration agent told me a while ago we should allow for the following costs, can anyone confirm if they sound about right, I know they probably vary a bit depending on where you get them done but they seem very expensive to me!

Police checks £45 per adult
Health check £220 per person (same for child)
X-rays £180 per person (same for child)

Our children will be 4 and 1 at the time of needing these done.

Thanks

Sounds about right. They can only be done at a small number of approved panel doctors, and they certainly aren't cheap.
Have a read of this thread for a bit more of an idea :)

Hi Laura,

your children should not need chest X-rays (unless there is an existing, underlying medical condition that warrants this) as they are both under 11 years.

Our 2 were 8 & 9 years old at the time and did not need chest X-rays, so potentially a bit of a saving for you there.
