Hi The Roberts Family,
We had our medicals and x-rays all done in one place on the same day. Not many on the list do it all in the same place and due to problems getting time off work this really helped. We paid a total of £400 for everything. They sent them to Sydney 7 days later and they were finalised 9 days after that.

Hi Rachel, we're based just outside Cardiff what about yourself?
I've had a look at the panel as suggested by most others (thanks!) but it looks as though we've only one option for medical and one for xray so no doubt they'll be hiking the prices to the max!
Thanks again for all the feedback

I do know exactly how you feel about worrying over the medicals.
Much as I would love to be a twiglet (essentially thin with a few correctly placed lumps and bumps), I don't think anyone would say I am anywhere close. Plus there are other health issues, unrelated to my weight, that led me to think that it was one too many to overlook. The agent we had hired/ booked and I were busy getting stuff together ready for the appeal, we were so convinced that we would be declined that when we heard it had passed, we didn't quite know what to do.
Relax, if I can pass a medical, miracles do happen!!
Thanks for the reassurance Libby and don't we all have those lumps and bumps that are not were they were 20 years ago
I called a couple of the docs on the list and best (most convenient if not the cheapest) was £260 per person. We could probably do it for less saving about £80 - but this is very close to our home with xrays and med done in the same place! We're gonna book for the start of April so hopefully will be ahead of the game but not so much so as to confuse things!!!).
I'll be watching your timeline with interest to see how you guys go.
we have just found out that it is less than £30 each for the whole lot in Kuala Lumpur ... x-rays and everything ... very cheap indeed ....
Don't worry, we were in the same boat as Libby, especially when during the medical, the Dr discovered I had Diabetes. We too were putting together our appeal and getting ready for a major knock back when out of the blue, we got our visa! Just go with the flow, although I have to say if you are anywhere near Nottingham, the Docs at Tudor Medical Centre are absolutely brilliant and really helpful. He phoned me to reassure me that it would all be ok, and basically helped us through the whole shebang. We also had it all done on the same day, meds and X-Rays and the worst bit was the stuck up woman at the private hospital where we had our x-rays done!
Where do I find a list of medical doctors? There are only 11 in the UK on the IMMI website. Are there any others or do they give them to you when you are sent for them? We are about to submit out 176 application but understand it could be 4 weeks later we're requested for medicals. Anyone have any ideas? - Just looked further on the IMMI Webpage and it says you must choose an eHealth Dr from the list as of Nov 2011 so I guess that answers my question... Thanks anyhow!
