Only 1 panel doc for south east? Delays/Timeline~?

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone,

Another question for your perusal please!?!

 

Daughter needs a medical. When we had ours there was a panel doctor 20 miles away. Looking on the Panel Doc list there now appears to be only one for the entire south east!?!?!?

Is that right and how long is that gonna take? Further advice on getting through this apprciated!

 

Cheers,

Steve.

There is Maidenhead, so you may have to venture to London. We had ours in Maidenhead last week, 5 of us and it was seamless and very professional. All of us in an out in under 2 hours, and 2 of us had chest x ray as well. Immigration link in case you haven't got it? >

Cheers peeps,

What confuses me is how they can go from loads of panel docs to just 1?

Surely this creates a massive backlog and slows the process down?

Unless I'm missing something obvious?

Anyone wishing to clarify the situation?

Cheers,

Steve.

Who knows why? the most improtant thing is surely that they don't diminish staff at any of the processing places in Oz!!? there is no backlog in the UK as it is sent straight to a processing centre in Oz, so the only pain in the backside is how far you have to travel to get to one and if it inconveniences anyone..
