    Hi Gang

     

    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!

    Hi Jill

     

    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.

    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

    Hello

     

    When you go, you should take with you copies of letters from your GP and/ or consultants for any existing medical condition requiring treatment. This letter should give a short term (ie 12 months) and long term forecast of the treatment required to sort it out.

     

    We had an issue in that one of our consulants retired six months before the meds and no-one told us. A replacement had not been appointed and therefore we took copies of letters sent between him and the GP. We got these from the GP and that went fine.

     

    People going through this are advised to declare everything as random spot checks are done by Immigration. The process generally goes fine as long as you are honest and it doesn't matter which area of the process it is. Where you try to hide something, then suspicion is aroused as to what else you may be hiding.

     

    Good luck, should be a walk in the park. We were busy planning the appeal before we had even had the meds as we were so sure I would be turned down. Our agent had all the forms ready and then I passed. I was so shocked.
