I already have my job, visa acceptance. Basically just need to do their medical, show them my degree to seal the deal.
Medically, I had to spend about 3 days in hospital, about 10 years ago, so they could diagnose a problem I was having with some of my joints. It was basically just inflammation in the joints, that was easily treatable with a once a week pill.
Since then, I’ve obviously just been declared fit to work, and have been back in full time employment ever since, with no further problems.
My medical treatment these days is just seeing a GP once a year, to check that everything is good basically.
I have a cousin in Singapore already, and he’s insured me that the medical they do over there is little more than checking that you don’t have HIV and things like that. And basically not to worry about it. They aren’t going to make a big deal out of previous illnesses. You know, bearing in mind I’ve been signed off as fit to work in the UK for a long time.
At the same time, my cousin is designer, with next to no knowledge of HR, as far as I’m aware! And from a family prone to over confidence(myself included)!
I’m just assuming there are people here working in HR, who have a lot more experience with things like this. And know the general rules.
As in, they aren’t going to turn me away as I take a bit of medication (like one pill a week), and had a few medical problems as a teenager?
Part of me’s kind of thinking I should be proactive with this, and should be talking to my new companies people. The other’s kind of thinking, why should I be talking about confidential stuff like this if it’s not actually relevant?
So I just want to know whether it is relevant?!
