    Default Panel doctor query

    Hi folks,

    Been a bit quiet on here for a few weeks, but we got our ITA through about 2 weeks ago... things can move a bit now!

    Quick question about the panel doctors.... there are two I have contacted with regards to medicals, and they are trying to sell me blood tests in addition to the medical cert... extra cost too, surprise surprise... anybody know if a blood test is essential?

    Thanks

    The blood tests are part and parcel of the medical along with urinalysis. They test for syphillis, HIV, Hepatitis B, liver function etc. so are an important part of the medical. On the form there are some other 'discretionary tests' mentioned at the bottom of the page so perhaps it was these that you were offered as an extra?
