medicals this monday!Do they contact our GP for any medical history?
We have the dreaded Medicals this Monday!Could you just tell me do they contact our GP at all to look at any medical history?Or does it all count on the day of the Medicals and what info we have provided on our forms?
Be glad to get them over with!Just keeping fingers crossed my Blood pressure won't let me down(just had it done at my own GP and it was very high-over the acceptable 150/90) then we have the added concern of my youngest (Matthew) with his badly damaged arm after a recent trampoline accident!
Just read recent thread about the worry and insecurity of going on the Temp SIR 495!
I feel exactly the same and understand the worries you all have but i'm trying to put that to one side until we get through the dreaded medicals!I just have a horrible feeling having got this far we are now going to come up against the awful outcome of all 6 of us NOT passing our medicals!I can't imagine how we will feel!
They dont contact your GP they just relly on the info you give them. If their is a concerne they will ask u to get further info int the form of a GP or consultant letter. Try not to worrie to much we were really worried as Meg has a quite serious and costly eye condition and I am over weight in the end it was no problem we all sailed through
Hi Gill, we had ours & the x-rays yesterday. I was surprised there was so little to it. Other than reading through the forms, they check your blood pressure, look in ears, check you can read off the board etc. not much more to it than that.
Hi cunnah, Don't panic ?, I thought it was very layed back, i bet they have loads of families going through the system . I did read someone else had high blood pressure,i think she took some tablets to help ,then she was ok .

mine and davids blood presures were both up but she give us a few goes
i had alittle drink on the friday and none on the satday/sunday so just chill it will be ok:D
If you give any information at your medicals than the GP has to check this out. For example if you tell them you have had breast lumps that were none cancerous/cysts they can not believe your word and have to have copy of letters sent to your GP or letters from your consultant.
If you have a child with any problems such as eye problems, dyslexia, autism, kidney problems etc than you have to give the GP copies of diagnosis and how this conditon affects the child. Provide up to date tests, reports etc.
Immigration whats to know you have a normal child who will grow up into a working adult paying taxes and not draining the Aus government.
Good luck with everyone having a medical

Had a few glasses of pop tonight but that's it then till Monday night!Off to Ribby hall Village with the kids straight from or meds on monday(As they are off on school hols for 2 weeks)
Will we get an incline on the day if we have passed our meds or not?
When do you move out of your house?
Think it looks like we will end up renting our house out too!
no u dont get told anything when u get the meds done just that they get intouch with your tracking number etc.
you's will be fine, when i come out we had to take me son to the dentist hospital to get 4 teeth out, was more worried about that!
let me know how ribby hall is? might take the kids there, going to pontins in 2 weeks without david so see how that goes!
take care, suexx
