Leanne I've got a letter to go to my GPs with asking them to fax/email results. It probably will cost me more which is a pain but at least I don't have to go back to Edinburgh!
We went to Medmigration at Bridgewater in Manchester for ours. It took about 1.5 hours and was fairly straightforward - they were quiet that day though.
My daughter thought it the funniest having to do a urine sample - she'd never done one before.
Our results were uploaded and cleared in days.
All the best!!
Thank you all for your replies. They've been of great help.
At least it won't be a big issue if the monthly arrives for her though she can't seem to remember doing a urine test before and thinks it is funny in a teenage "Kevin and Perry" style!!
Just thought Id post an update - We had our medicals this morning and took about 2 hours. It would have been less but but for me!!!
My husbands was all fine, My daughter had her monthly arrive yesterday which is whatI'd cain Id been worried about - even though she wasn't due so needs to have another test at our GP's next week. We then just need the nurse to write the result on letter headed paper and fax to spire.
Then there's me........ my BP was really high as I was worrying so much. I've never had high BP in all the times it has been measured by a gp or doctor which is a few. They tried a twice and then said i'd need to go to the GP for measuring again, blood test, urine test, ECG and another test. This scared me even more as I start a new job next week - long story and the thought of having to get time off for more than 1 appointment scared me even more which made me even more upset. They gave me another chance and left me alone and my BP was ok this time so that figure will be sent off though they suggested I still need to get it checked out - this time remaining calm!! :)
So fingers crossed all will go ok and we will get the results we are after soon.
Glad its over with Leanne. Good luck with it. Its really happening. I had mine today as well. Was a little worried about the X-Ray as I had caught a cold. But then the Doc said it was all good.
