    Hello, we have our medicals on tuesday and was wondering if anyone could share their own experiences of having a medical, so that we can be prepared. I'm getting a little nervous and imaging all sorts lol.

    Hi There,

     

    It was all pretty straight forward.

     

    Pee in a pot and they do a dip test on it.

    Chest xrays whilst standing like a chicken.

    Take blood for tests.

    Medical part is height, weight, ears, eyes, take BP, listen to chest, feel joints.

    Thats about it.

     

    Good luck.

    hi sharon,

    like the op said pretty straight forward, just make sure your no where near your monthleys, both my daughter and i had blood in our urine mine was ok after drinking a jug of water but my daaughter needed anouther test wich took an extra week and £75 (and worry) to be told all was ok

    its naturel to be nervous i was worried i smoke and drink a little...... and my husband drinks a little more lol we dont exercise but were on the go the whole time, what im getting at is were not that healthy type and all was well so dont worry

    jools x

    hey there,

    i was SO nervous before hand, but mostly because I thought I would find out something was wrong with me! but really it isn't a big deal. the only thing i would say is drink a lot of water. I had my usual cup of tea in the morning and when I got there i was dehydrated so there was blood in my pee. So I had to drink a jug of water and do the test again. Everything else is fine and it was really quick, like 45 mins for the whole thing...£270 pounds later!! good luck it will be fine x

    Hi Sharon and Lisa, I see you had your med's done in Birmingham, we are having ours there on Thur. It says I'm our email from them to bring results from my last smear test but I don't have them. Did they ask to see yours?

    Thank you.

    Yes it is one of the first things they will ask for. I didn't have mine neither so I went to my doctors and asked them for a print out of them. My doctors didn't even charge me.

    Hi Yes as Sharon said they did ask to see it. I just contacted my GP and they printed it off and gave them the copy, no problems.
