medical form taking too long :(

by lauren2796 » 10 Jun 2013, 22:35

Just wondering if anyone else is in the same situation, feeling pretty stressed.
I was abit stupid and didnt realise how important the medical form was so I didnt hand it into my doctors untill i got placed (which was a week ago, I was RSG) My doctors said the form could still take another two/three weeks but im meant to fly on sunday so I dont think im gona be able to go as camp america say you need it to fly.
Im just really upset that this might be the reason I dont get to go :(
Any help or advice would be much appreciated.

I said to my doctors that seeing as I had to pay for the service I should be able to have it back by a certain date (before i returned home form uni) and they agreed, maybe politely explain that too them? x

Thats crazy - my doctor filled mine in during an appointment and didnt even charge me anything. He filled in two one for CA and one for camp and even had to do eye/blood/urine tests etc all for free..

Just explain that you need it urgently.

Keep pestering them. They said that mine would take no more than a week but it ended up taking a month! I actually got it for free due to the hassle. Definitely explain the situation to them, and maybe inform your camp director too. I hope everything works out, it'd be such a shame if you didn't get going because of it!

Its fine about your medical form - I called them today because I realised it would take a while for me to get mine and I don't want to pay for it unless I've got a placement. They said that basically they understand that the situation is that you might have to leave at short notice, so as long as its on the way, its fine. Just make sure that there is some way you can get a copy sent to CA while you're in the US :)

I know this sounds silly but who we send the medical form
To? And do we scan it in and send it?? Just got placed and I'm so confused!

you've probably got this sorted by now but if not you send it to the address on the bottom of the medical form but its probably best to fax it directly to your camp if you can
