Medical Info, and Costs at UK facilities
 
I thought this might be useful. It's the current fees for the UK facilities offering visa medicals for Australia. I couldn't find one set of fees, but I have linked the website so that people can contact the hospital directly to enquire if they want/need to. Obviously prices can change, so you should keep that in mind & contact them directly for up-to-date information when you need it.

Hope it helps.

I did my full, adult, medical at Spire, Manchester on 2 June, and was definitely charged £260. As they did for my husband (booked seperately). Maybe Manchester is just different, or a bit kinder.

Could anyone add the costs of UK citizens (from Northern Ireland) having to attend Dublin if not adding flight costs? Mainland is GB, not UK? Or have I got that wrong? :)

I couldn't find the prices for medicals at either the Cork or Dublin facilities. I couldn't even find a website for the Cork one (Belvedere Surgery). X-rays at Cork & Dublin (Euromedic) are €85.

Great info mrsgreenstar76. Thanks for sharing. I wish I had seen this thread before contacting each facility individually.

Well, I was pretty sad learning that there is no panel doctor in Northern Ireland. Have to make my way to either Edinburgh or Manchester. However glad to know that some facilities provide next day appointments.

:( I am too worried about the cost I have to pay being in NI.

Additional £250 - £300 for the travel cost.

I didn't have to do a medical, i'm on a 457. Does anyone know why not? The migration agent said sometimes they request it. But it seems that everyone else here on a 457 had one.

Depends what job you're coming in on. Hospital staff have to have them, can't remember who else.

Its generally if you are going to be working/studying in a medical or educational facility, although DIAC can request them from anyone if they so wish.

You don't have to travl to the mailand, you can go to Dublin if it suits better. As long as its an approved doctor it doesn't matter which country :)

Hi jonnyfurious,

Just checked both websites - medmigration still say contact them for cost, and spire list adult medical as £285 (age 15 +); children 11 - 14 = £185, and under 11 as £90.

http://www.bridgewaterhospital.com/t...migration.html

Good luck :)

Thanks for the update. It's annoying that they've changed their prices, as I only checked them a couple of weeks ago! I've gone through them all again, and checked the prices & they should all be correct. :thumbup:

These are the only facilities in the north that are authorised to conduct medicals on behalf of DIAC. You can confirm this by checking the list of panel doctors that DIAC has on its website.

Or going the other way, there's Edinburgh which is probably only slightly closer.

Yes, the list is correct. Maidenhead is only 1-1½ hours way from Southampton area - hardly a huge distance. If you call one of the places that can do the medicals, you'll find out how long it'll take to wait for that clinic.

I had my medicals at the bridge clinic in Maidenhead last week, once they found me on the eHealth system i got an appointment in a week for a family of four. Very smooth operation and a nice centre. Free tea and coffee! But make sure the kids have something to entertain themselves with..

re: Medical Info, and Costs at UK facilities
 
thanks. I kept thinking there was one in Southampton. Must have mixed it up with an old pilot medical. With them there are lots of places across the country waiting to take your money.
Not ready for the meds yet, so just wanted to get an idea of time it takes to get appiontment in our planning (do you wait for c/o to ask for them or get them done when you submit the full visa applications ??, hell I don't even know if they are electronic or papers you have to send off to the c/o your self ??).

AJRussell May 1st 2013 10:03 pm

re: Medical Info, and Costs at UK facilities
 
I had a notification in the immi website that they were requested - just took six weeks to book as we got 'stuck' between the old and new system!

If you have a c/o I would state you are a point where you need to plan them or at least drop the c/o an email to confirm.

Good luck!

There used to be a lot more places authorised to perform medicals, but that changed a few years ago. Be very careful if you are intending to front load medicals. They are only valid for a (maximum of) one year, and if (for whatever reason) the processing is delayed, you may need to redo them or it may impact the time you would have to validate your visa.

Fees checked & updated today (17th July 2013). As always, they can change at any time, so you need to check with the facilities concerned when arranging your medicals etc. It's not my fault if they alter the fees without notice (which they seem to have started doing already)! :lol:

Just to ay we booked our meds for Handsworth Wood in Birmingham and they are now charging £304 for full medical and £227 for just the medical for my stepson who is not accompanying. Think that's a bit steep. Where else does medicals on a Saturday??

Wozzie.

Many thanks for the information - I very much appreciate it. :thumbsup: I've gone onto their website for the new figures & updated my original post.

I absolutely agree about it being quite steep. It was fairly pricey before, but it was a heck of an increase.

I'm afraid that I don't know which ones are available to do the meds on a Saturday. You may need to e-mail the various clinics to find out. Sorry.
