What happens if the Lab / X-ray results are abnormal?

You may be asked to book a second visit with us. You may need medication and/or further tests. ( extra charges apply). The doctor will review your case, explain the findings and refer you for further treatment to your GP.  If you do not have a GP, the doctor can act as your GP.  

I have received a letter requesting further tests.

These can be lab tests, ultrasound, ECG etc. We will help you arrange these tests and arrange specialist reports when required. Additional charges will apply.

Do I need an appointment?

No, you can walk in. The waiting times will depend on other patients  present. We will be able to fit quite a few walk in patients. We do recommend that you make an appointment.

No, it is not a requirement for the tests.

What to expect during the appointment?

The receptionist will take your passport and begin creating your Health Case for your Immigration Medical. You will be asked a few questions and then your photo will be taken. You now wait in the waiting room.
Your height and weight measurements are carried out before you see the doctor. Your vision is then tested. You are then asked to provide a urine sample and a urine test is completed. 
The doctor/nurse then calls you into the office and takes a thorough history and examination. The doctor now knows which lab tests are required and fills the lab referral form accordingly.

What happens after the examination?

Results arrive into our computer automatically within 1-2 days. If your results are normal we will submit the application to Immigration on the same day the results arrive or by the next day. 
Abnormal results can take a little longer. We can send an email to you when the form has been submitted. We will contact you as needed. You can also contact us by email or phone for any queries.
