Update 2:

13/1/17 - i130 Petition Sent
17/1/17 - Medical Records Requested
17/1/17 - Police ACRO Report Requested
17/1/17 - i130 Petition Received (Post Office Tracked)
20/1/17 - USCIS London Email Confirming Receipt
23/1/17 - Medical Records CD Collected from GP
26/1/17 - Police ACRO Certificate Arrived
27/3/17 - i130 Approval Arrived

Now just waiting for LND Number from Embassy to arrive! Letter says could be 5-8weeks! Judging by this thread people seemed to get it much quicker than that so hopefully it arrives in the next couple of weeks.

11/4/17 - Medical at Knightsbridge Doctors - All went well and had all paperwork ready to go, seemed like a bit of a machine, churn them in and out. As expected, was in for about 90 minutes, needed a booster jab which was £40 so had that there and then. Visa Interview booked so got an uncomfortable wait whilst my work trips get in the way for the next 6 weeks!
