    Morning,

     

    Personally i think its better to wait until you are asked....! You have to go a 'specified' doctor from the list of panel docs on the immi website...cant remember the exact name! If you do a search on the forum u will find out the wed address.

    Good advice from the smack fairy, I thought we would enquire about medicals at about the time I suspected we might be allocated a case officer, and this turned out to be about 3 months too soon.

    However after checking out the panel doctors in Gloucester, Bristol & Bath I found that the costs were quite a lot different. Also the doctors in Gloucester could not be seen for about a month, the Bristol panel did not even have a diary so could not give me a date, and the Bath doctors were able to fit us in within a week. However xrays are needed before seeing the doctor, so leave time to get these appointed and done before making a fixed appointment with the doctor.

    We finished up having to visit Bath on 2 days running to get everything sorted, (about 100 mile round trip)

    It was just as well we went when we did, as they discovered that I had Asbestosis and advised that we obtained a NHS consultants report, as these would be required by the Aussie authorities.

    All this about 3 months and fortunately it all came together at about the time we were allocated our case officer, and everything then happened very quickly.

    Best of Luck

    ICE,

    The nearest to you is Duke Street medical centre near Parkhill in Sheffield for your medicals and Claremont hospital for your x rays.Thats where we used and it cost around £144 for medicals, £44 for bloods and £72 for x rays.I have got tattoo's so my bloods cost a little more.Not sure when you get told to do it.We are going as police officers so we were told when South Oz police would be lodging our visa application so we basically had them done before then.Good luck

    You did really well.When I was talking to the doctor they said last year they were doing 30 tests a week, now its near 30 a day! Whilst we were there we were joined by a family of 5, family of 3 and another female.And that was just the hour and half we were there.

    Its slightly different for us because were going as police officers.We applied for the job with SAPOL in February and went through the whole process of interviews medicals fitness tests etc.They offered us a job with them and gave us a start date of January.They told us they will be lodging our visa application in August so we just need to be ready with our medicals and paperwork for them.We decided to go december so we can get a feel of the place and have a holiday before we start at training school in January.

    We aren't going on the skills assessment like a lot of people.Police officers are different.Quite lucky really because we wouldn't get a visa otherwise!
