    I've split this from the thread it was posted in as it was really off the topic and might have become a bit lost in there. I hope you'll get more replies to it in its own thread.

     

    Cheers

    I don't know about the medical for the visa others on here will have a better idea.

     

    I have a couple of medical conditions and have just found out that most employers in Oz require you to have a medical which from my families point of view has put a whole new light on our new adventure. Even though I don't have more sick leave than any other person they will evidently look upon you as more of a risk and more likely to have more sick leave. Trying to find out from some agencies what the score is and hopefully we will hear something from them, although they aren't very good at answering questions like this :mad: Well more like they can't be bothered :arghh:

     

    Anyway, thought I'd mention it as you may want to see whether you can get a definitive answer on the way an employer would look upon your condition before going any further.

     

    I wish you all the best,

    Hi, don't worry about crohns it's fine. We took a specialist report to the medicals and they were more then happy the meds for the wife never even got referred just straight through (unlike mine for high blood pressure) as for costs well we pay for prescriptions here so it does not matter. Yes they will be a bit more but aisathiopran is not expensive anyway and it's not all about cost. If you want any more in depth info just send me a pm.
