Knightsbridge & GP Advice

2 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hopefully our experience can help someone else.  The best advice we can give is GET EVERY SINGLE PIECE OF MEDICAL INFORMATION you can get your hands on from your GP, from any reports, from the NHS, from your old records, from wherever. GET IT ALL AND START GETTING IT NOW, AS MUCH IN ADVANCE AS POSSIBLE. Pay any fees you need to, it will be much less expensive in the long run. And don't believe anyone who tells you that the summary should be enough. It may not be. If it seems that if you have ANYTHING that makes Knightsbridge do even a slight double take, they will request more information from your GP.  And in our experience, we had to wait from October 3rd to November 5th for the GP to write a 5 sentence letter of no real value or help.  Medical offices and GPs have no real stake or interest in your case and they can be unbearably and frustratingly S-L-O-W and unhelpful.  In the end, I believe it was more the additional medical reports that showed the full story, as it seemed the GP didn't want to sign his name to anything and essentially wrote "no comment."  Understandably he didn't know much about my fiancee as he had only been assigned in 2016 and never met her. However, to take an entire month to get that information back to us felt cruel, and was simply exasperating. Now that we are nearly out of the matrix, we are breathing a bit easier since the embassy are in the final stages of processing our case. But we could have saved ourselves lots of stress and exhaustion if we would have requested any and all records from everywhere possible, starting from when we filed our original 129F petition in February. Good luck to all.
