Yeah thanks. To be honest so far as im aware im not overly unhealthy (barring the weight). Its for a catering assistant, will be on my feet a while but used to be a carer working 12 hour shifts. Used to sore tootsies! Fingers crossed it all goes ok.

I work within the NHS, and all the 'medical' will be is a look at your general health and any underlying health problems. They just want to have an idea of what your sick time is likely to be - ie, high or low. They're bound by the Disabilities Act and discrimination legislation, so i wouldn't worry too much, even if you do have an underlying health problem. They'd be obliged to make changes to your work place if necessary.

yeah you fill in a form and they don't ask you about weight, just medical problems.

In N.Ireland, you dont even have to have a full medical by a doctor if you haven't filled in any medical problems.. I was fortunate that I got all of my medical complaints after I got employed LOL

Thankoo!

Just desperate for the starting date now. Thing is they are also looking for a supervisor who will work the same shifts as me. That position is open for applications till the 15th april.
Will i have to wait till they start so were both done at the same time? If so ive got a wee bit of a wait yet.
