I think the medicals are a bit of a racket. We had ours done in Dover (nice) and it too was a"lovely" surgery, although the staff and doctor were quite nice. I think it was about £380 for the two of us, not bad work if you can get it. Buckland hospital is also like stepping back 30 years.
Hi JC. Thanks for that...really helpful. We have a container load coming out and we have sent everything so hopefully not too much in the way of furniture and stuff to buy. But useful to know about the phones and internet.
I am looking to book medicals in the near future - I live in Dunfermline and have been looking at doctors in the Edinburgh area - can you recall the name of the practice that you visited? and how long ago did you have your's done.
Cheers for your help.
We paid £400 for both of us back in Jan 2008. This week we received a letter from the clinic refunding us the VAT amount paid!
This could be a nice saving for a large family so be sure to ask if you should be paying VAT or not.
