One for the ladies.Just in case anyone doesn't know you are required to take a copy of your latest smear test result with you to the visa medicals. Just found out as have been asked to do medicals so now have a mad rush trying to organise a copy and not sure if it's recent enough! Hope this helps somebody!
Hello, I'm new here - the name's Nicola, and my hubby and I moved from Edinburgh to Perth, WA, in October last year on a 457 visa, with my hubby being on a 2 year work contract. Just a question for the women of the forum, something that has been niggling me for a while - probably a silly question. Not sure if it really belongs in the 'dilemmas' forum but I couldn't really see anywhere appropriate. My hubby and I have been very blessed so far to not have needed to see a doctor since we arrived here 6/7 months ago, so I have absolutely no idea how the Medicare system works. We do have Medicare cards and private health insurance. For a variety of reasons, before we came here, health issues fell by the wayside for quite some time before we left Scotland, and I have recently realised that it has now been way too long since I have had a smear test. I am very keen to get my next one soon, a) because I really should and b) because we are hoping to start a family within the next couple of years. So my (stupid, probably) question is: how do I go about doing this? Do I go to a GP (as in, a doctor at a local medical practice) or do I go to a gynaecologist? If I should go to a gyno, do I need to get a referral from a GP first? Sorry if the answer is really obvious, I just struggled to find this info online and apparently my local GP charges a $75 consultation charge which the tight Scot in me would rather not pay, if I could just go directly to the gyno :-) Thanks, Nicki
I am in the last stages of my 175 skilled migrant visa, case officer requested medicals. Went to medical and panel doctor asked for smear results routinely, i had had an abnormal borderline smear last smear in april and was due to go back end of november. Panel doctor emailed cheif panel doctor and was advised to rate the medical as a 'B' but said it should be okay of immigration. Just went for smear privately, reults came back all clear, took these to panel doctor who has forwared them to immigration. Will everything be okay? has anyone else experienced similar? I know my health is fine, but wll the B rating from the panel doctor mean that they refuse my application? STRESSED!!!!:nah:
