costs of medicals

    Recommended Posts

    Hi Just asking what's the average sort of price people paid to have the medical checks done, I was going to go to my GP and ask them to do it as they are attached to a hospital so have xray machines etc there and I wondered what sort of price they would ask.

    Also was there anything unexpected in the tests or just, ears, eyes, lung capacity weight etc?

     

    Thanks.

    Hi Paul,

     

    Is your GP on this list.... http://www.immi.gov.au/contacts/overseas/u/united-kingdom/panel-doctors.htm

     

    They will only except medicals done by doctors on this list.

    Blimey Pete that's two golden nuggets in a week, I had no idea there was a docs list, I think you need to write down all the information in your head and put it on a sticky in the forum lol:notworthy:

    hi

     

    Our medicals cost 180 for me (I am a nurse so had to have hepatitis Band C blood tests in addition to the usual HIV) OH cost 150 1 child 125 as had Blood test the other child was 110 approx. CXR was 80 each regardless of age of the children,

    Don't forget you may have to travel to have your medicals done. I seem to recall there was only 1 place to go to in Bournemouth the other nearest ones were in Bristol and Southampton I think.

    We had height weight blood pressure eye test chest exam breast exam for women, abdominal check. our doctor checked over all our moles and freckles. had to do a urine sample and answer any questions that arose from our medical form we had already completed.

    think that was about it.

    Good luck

    Dear Ali,

     

    I'm with you! Must be cheaper to fly to Belfast!!! We're forking out £858 next week for 2 adults, 11, 9 & 4yr old. £160 each for adults, £60 each for kids, £49 x2 for HIV tests and £90 x 3 for chest xray. Oh the joys of being in Cornwal with a choice of two panel doctors!!!

    Hi,

    I lived in Kent and done a bit of phoning about and found the cheapest to be the one in Croydon, I think it was £115 for medicals and £50 for x-ray , the 2 places you need to go are only 1 minute walk apart and you can get them both done on the same day. I went on a Friday when only 1 doctor does the medicals, if your worried go that day, he was "understanding" about my blood pressure and we all passed.

    I was under the impression that kids didn't need medicals (under 16)? Am I wrong? We are getting a temporary visa, not a permanent one yet

    Hi, I may be wrong (correct me if so!) but think all under 16s need a medical. Children aged 11 and over will also need an X-Ray. We are going on a temp visa too (475) and have booked medicals for OH, me, 2 yr old and 4 wk old baby. Apparently the medicals for the children don't require anything nasty like blood tests either - phew!!

    Hope that helps! x

    Oh great - more £££ required! We have 3 boys (all under 5) - how much will theirs be? I don't know why I thought they wouldn't need it now. Sure I read it somewhere but can't find it. We are travelling on a 475 too. Haven't been able to apply yet as waiting on IELTS results (my husband's occupation is only 40 points). It all seems so far away :-(

    Jo - I don't know about prices etc but on our visa I had to have a medical because I was entering a classroom situation on arrival in Oz, so this might be why the boys need it..... dunno though!!! :-)

    Hi Barry, We live near Manchester and are currently waiting for SA Government sponsorship. We then have to complete the visa application. Some friends have emigrated to Oz and they had their medicals done at a Doctors on King Street, Manchester. Unsure of the name. Do you know at what stage the medicals etc need to be carried out.

    Hope this helps.

    Hi,

     

    Interesting reading about meds done in Manchester, has anyone had their meds carried out in Glasgow. We live in Cumbria (the outback of England)!!! and so will have to travel 3 hours in car to either Manchester or Glasgow for our Meds which will involve an overnight stay no doubt depending on appointment times.
