I'm in the process of becoming a foster carer and have to have a medial at my doctors.
The doctor said it will be a 30 minute appointment.
I was just wondering if anyone could tell me what it will entail?
Thank you

Mine was many years ago now. Quite thorough but nothing really to worry about - no needles! Be prepared to be weighed though, I wasn't and wouldn't have worn a thick jumper and jeans if I'd known...

I had mine a couple of months ago it was pretty standard weight, height etc he also felt my tummy to check my liver wasn't enlarged and checked my teeth and made me stand on one leg and close an eye and touch my nose I found it all quite funny (a cute doc helped though!). Don't worry it will be fine

Thanks for the replies Scarlet and Twopot. It's made me less worried smile
