  6. The Health Operations Centre (HOC) assesses and processes offshore Immigration health examinations. Permanent visa applicants: All applicants for permanent visas, including the main applicant, partner and any dependants, must be assessed against the health requirement. Even if the applicant's partner and dependants are not included in the visa application, they must still be assessed against the health requirement. Applicants for a permanent visa will be asked to undergo a medical examination, an x-ray if 11 years of age or older and an HIV/AIDS test if 15 years of age or older, as well as any additional tests requested by the Medical Officer of the Commonwealth (MOC). From the Check the progress of an application website, typical Application Status are: 1) "Further medical results received" HOC received your envelope. [process takes 2 days after received] 2) "Health requirements outstaning" HOC decides if the applicant has local clearance capability. Here should be checked if applicants belong to class A (no significant history or abnormal findings) or class B (Significant history or abnormal findings present) according to assessed by the Panel Doctor in the FORM 26 (point "24 Recommendation"). For example: If applicant is Class A and lives in gazetted countries, the process is faster than B. This step involves checking of: envelope arrives sealed, applicant identity, doctor identity, all reports certified and translated to English (if required) and correct tests done. Today many "overseas medical test" for permanent VISA go to LCU (Local Clearance Unit) regardless of class A or B (I'm not sure why: Efficient, HOC collapsed?). Nevertheless, DIAC do not require a MOC assessment on all applications for permanent entry visas, and is therefore largely reliant on overseas panel doctrors and COs to ensure that health examinations and tests are conducted in line with DIAC requirements. [delivery process takes from 2 days to 1 week after 1 - don't frustrate if status doesn't change, sometimes online status are not updated but the process continues] 3) "Further medical results referred" If not tuberculosis(TB), medicals (X-ray, hepatitis, VIH/AIDS, TB/blood tests or relevant considerations) are received by LCU. Key Functions from LCU are: Processing and local clearance of medical results sent from panel doctors, Process 'A' cases, referral of health assessment 'B' cases to HAS (compulsory for permanent VISA). In addition, medicals will be referred from LCU to a MOC (HAS) if any criteria for 'A' not met, problems with identity, panel doctor not found,medical results not legible or high risk country. [this process takes 3 weeks to 2 month after 2 depending on your health condition (or a family member) and whether new assessments are required]. (Category 2 is currently taking 3 weeks -approximately -) From here you may go to 4 or 5, depending on a MOC opinion from HAS. 4) "Further medicals required" If necessary, MOC may also ask any applicant to undergo extra medical reports: full medical history, medical reports from specialists, reports from school, others. You or your Agent will receive an e-mail from HOC (see below). Contact to DIAC if you have not yet received notification about these requirements, after your status has changed. New tests/medical reports should be sent to Global Health (same building of HOC in Sydney) [same day you receive a letter asking you extra meds, the status will change to 4.] 4.1) "Further medical results referred" If 4, extra medicals received by Global Health are sent to a HAS again for further review. [2-4 days after meds are received the status will change to 4.1] [process and final decision/advice takes 3 weeks to 2 months, depending on many factors] (Category 2 is currently taking 3 weeks -approximately -) 5) "Health requirements finalised" Finalised is a status that means each documents fulfills requirement to be analyzed by a MOC. MOC takes from 1 to 4 days for a decision. Outcomes are entered in HATS (Health Assessment Tracking System), overseas post/case officer is notified of this outcome. Nevertheless, MOC can ask you to undergo new tests again. You will go to 4. If not extra test are required, Case Officer deciding visa applications is notified and must accept the opinion from MOCs. After that CO will update the document checklist. It seems in this exactly time you will see "met" or "not met" in the website. [you will see this status 2-4 days after a MOC from HAS decides over your health criteria] If all meds are "met" and the rest of the VISA requirements too, congratulations! DIAC will inform you VISA is granted. Else, if "not met", you can think in a re-view by means of a lawyer, a "Health Waiver" possibility (very difficult but possible) or even to think in another country. This is typical letter from HOC to Panel Doctors, if 4 ("Further medicals required"): =============================================================== Dear Panel Doctor, The bearer of this letter, Person X, DOB: /date/, F is required to provide further medical information (details given below). Please include the following information: A current further assessment from "list of specialist here". Please forward a further report addressing "list of requirements here" The report must be sealed by you, the Doctor, stamped and signed, then sent from your clinic to the Global Health (GH) at the following address: Global Health Department of Immigration and Citizenship Level 3, 26 Lee Street SYDNEY NSW AUSTRALIA 2000 Please include a copy of this letter when sending any further documents to the Global Health. Please do not hesitate to contact GH with the details provided below, should you require further clarification or information. Global Health, Level 3, 26 Lee Street Sydney NSW Australia 2000 GPO Box 9984 SYDNEY NSW 2001 Facsimile 61 2 8666 5901 Email: Health.Operations.Centre@immi.gov.au Website: www.immi.gov.au =============================================================== This is only a guide for understanding the process. Hope this is useful for you.

    The medical centre in manchester

    As everyone probably knows by now we or should I say my hubby is going for his medical next week with Dr Smith in Manchester. Could anyone who has been please confirm that it is near the ADSA and Trafford Centre? Hope so because we both know where that is, plus our appointment is seriously early so we don´t want to get lost and be driving around for ages getting stressed out and raising the BP! Can I also just say a huge thank you to anyone who has answered any of my queries and tried to alleviate our worries about these medicals. I have been a member of ex pat forms before and just want to say that this is the best one I have come across for correct information, friendliness and sympathy! Great work guys! :hug:
  8. Hi, My wife received an email from agency confirming she has been short listed for telephone interview for ICU nurse postion by one of the trauma centres in Sydney and they have given three weeks time to provide the availability in the morning time. She had no experience of telephone interview. In fact the current one is her third job in 17 years nursing career so only had 5-6 interviews face to face so far. She was prescreened by agency before forwarding her details to the hospital and that was about 45 minutes over the phone. That's the only experience she had over the phone. Appreciate any advice or ideas how to deal with telephone interview and infor about typical questions icu nurse can expect in the interview. Thanks, Mansawant

  12. Hi all, Am new to this forum, I am currently a student nurse about to go into my 2nd year, and we have been given our elective placements to organise for our 3rd year. I am looking to go to Australia for mine. For 2 reasons mainly, first being I intend on emigrating over there when i qualify, and I think experiencing an elective placement over there, will be a valuable experience to 'test the water' as it were and do some major fact finding. Secondly alot of my family are over there and it would be great to see them too and help with the whole emigration process. What i wanted to know, is i am interested in cancer nursing, and the place where i would like to go and do my elective placement is Melbourne. I stumbled across the Peter Mac Cancer Centre in Melbourne, just wondered if any of you had experiences of there? If it is a good hospital? Any info would be great really! Not only would this elective placement be great to work there, but they also do grad nursing programs, so I would look at hopefully applying after to join them when i emigrate. Am not sure how realistic this all is, but would appreciate any advice, if poss. Many thanks Sarah

  14. Hi all Every 2 weeks (sometime 3) registered migration agents hwo are also members of the MIA receive an update on the progress of medicals at the HOC. I have put below the latest one I have received and am happy to post each time I receive this if thats okay with the moderators? 'Below is the Health Operations Centre weekly update for the week beginning Monday 29 September 2008. We are currently processing medicals completed OFF-SHORE: 1. Urgent cases (457 visas) not requiring MOC's assessment received on 24th September 2008. 2. Temporary cases not requiring MOC's assessment received on 12th September 2008. 3. Permanent cases not requiring MOC's assessment received on 10th September 2008. 4. Urgent cases (e-visas, adoptions, 457 visas) requiring assessment by a Medical Officer received on 26th September 2008. 5. Other cases requiring medical assessment by a Medical Officer received on 17th September 2008. The case officer processing your visa application should be your first point of contact regarding any inquiry in relation to the application, including your health assessment results. If directing an enquiry to HOC, please note that if you are not the authorised contact declared on the visa application forms, then the HOC cannot release any information to you.' Hope this helps everyone who is waiting on medical results. As per the immi one for visa status it may not be entirely accurate but so far i have found it to be roughly right. :cute:

    Handsworth Wood Medical Centre

    Hi Just thought anyone who's thinking of using this centre might like some info.... We had our medicals and x-rays at Handsworth Wood on Friday, the staff are very friendly and helpful. It took 2 hours for us to go through the whole process as they were busy - there were over 14 people having immigration medicals. They charge £260+VAT per adult which includes courier fees to Sydney. It was a bit like being on a conveyor belt - 1st you see the administrator who checks your forms/passports etc, then it was the phlebotomist for blood test, weight/height,eye sight test and blood pressure, then chest x-ray (my OH had his done twice as he took too big a breath and she couldn't fit all his lungs on the x-ray !) Then we both saw the doctor together for a quick look in our eyes/ears/mouths, check pulse, listen to heart/breathing and check for hernias. Then it was back to the administrator to pay ! They expect blood test results within 12 days and will ring if any problems, otherwise they e-mail to let us know when the paperwork has been sent and will give us the tracking details. Then its a case of waiting for OZ to get their a into g ! Lisa:cute:
  20. Hi Folks All the documentation for my 856 application is finally in place(employer nomination, meds, police checks etc.). All that is required to be done is for the application to be lodged. I'm keen on using the DRC(decision ready checklist) option to speed up the process. As I understand it these applications are lodged at the Brisbane office / Centre of Excellence, though I am not sure if that was just on a trial basis? Does anyone know if the Brisbane office still accepts ENS 856 applications? Or is it preferable that it be lodged with the local Parramatta office(given that I live in Sydney)? I appreciate your feedback and assistance. Thanks
  21. Well me & my OH stayed up last night to speak to Adelaide processing centre to see if we could find out the progress of our visa app. & i can safely say we are more ticked off (putting it mildly) than ever now!!! We originally lodged our 175 visa app. back in Sept. 2009 & gained WA SS in July 2010 changing to a 176. The guy we spoke to last night told us (in his words) "IT WILL BE QUITE SOMETIME"- wouldn't commit to how much time- before we get a case officer. I am really chuffed for those people who already been allocated CO's but PROCESSING IN DATE ORDER obviously not as there are plenty of people that applied after us that have been given case officers. Sorry rant over, guess we'll just have to sit it out. Hopefully with the speed vias's that are being granted at the moment it means they'll get round to the rest of us quicker! :confused:Fingers X for everyone waiting Jo x
