I have an occupational health medical on thursday for my nursing place at Bournemouth Uni and I'm a bit nervous as to what to expect. Can someone tell me what to expect?

I refused mine to become a breastfeeding peer peer supporter! I ad to fill in a questionaire about my fitness etc but the medical was supposed to be to check my vaccination status. A friend who went was given a blood test to test for rubella and she was offered hep b. As volunteers you can easily refuse hepB but I don;t think its as easy for a HP or trainee to do that.

Not a lot usually. Blood pressure check. Possible urine test (not always) Will check your vaccination history.

That's all I have ever had.
