    Hi

     

    Just a quick question about medicals! Our kids are 4 and 5 will they need a medical and if so what?

     

    Also do the doctors have access to our medical records?

     

    Thanks

    Dawn was 4 when we went for our medicals last November. They do not see our records but did take the red book so they could see her jabs were up to date :D

     

    Her medical was very basic - quick chest and tummy check, eye check, ears looked at, height and weight and that was it :o An easy £50 for the panel doc :eek:

    We just went for our medicals two weeks ago, and have two girls 4 & 7.

     

    Like Lisa said all them checks were done, and olivia (7 year old) needed to provide a wee sample, which was a very difficult task, as her bladder seemed to temporarily shut down. HAHA.

     

    Anyway they dont have access to medicals records, but if you mention any problems on your questionaire which the doc thinks may need further info they will ask for a report from that person. i.e. if diabetic they will ask for info from your doctor.

     

    Hope this helps.:)

    Hi

    Our son is 15 months and his medical consisted of looking in his ears, shining a light in his eyes, feeling his tummy and listening to his chest. She then got a book out to check that he is doing everything he should for his age, co-ordination skills and reactions etc. It took about 10 minutes and cost £80.00. I don’t believe there is anything invasive if your under 10 years.

     

    Good luck...................

    Hi,

    I think it all comes down to which panel doctor you end up seeing,our girls at the time 14 months and 3 both had full medicals ( except for bloods and x-rays) the oldest having both hearing and eye tests. No dramas except for the time, nearly 3.5 hours for the family to be examined.

    At least we felt we had value for money at the end of it.

    They will write to your GP for details if they think there is a need to clarify anything, prevailing conditions/operations etc.

     

    Good luck
