So I have my medical exam scheduled for tomorrow and I think I'm all ready for it. 

I have a "Full report" and an "Encounter report" from my GP - they were unable to give me the "Patient report". My vaccinations are listed on both. 

I had maxillofacial jaw surgery twice, several years ago. I'm a bit concerned that they're going to request more information about this... 

It is not a current problem, and I do not have check-ups about it or take any medication for it. 

Am I just panicking for no reason?

Thanks, Em.

you need to get your patient summary, as stated above but the fact you had surgery on your jaw is not an issue at all

The surgery is not an issue. Lots of people have had some form of surgery (tonsils, appendix, teeth) at some point in their life. You need to list it on the questionnaire when you arrive. But the biggest concern is that you have no patient summary. You need to get that.

Update: I called up the clinic in London and told the receptionist that I don't have exactly the correct paperwork. But because there's still a sufficient amount of info on the "summary report", she said it will be fine. She also added a note on my booking to inform the doctor reviewing that my case might take a bit longer if they need to have a flick through my full medical history (12 pages) too.

Honestly judging by the sound of it, you should be fine. The jaw surgery won't be an issue at all. As for the lack of patient summary, I don't know why GPs are so against giving it out. They told my fiancé that Knightsbridge would have to request it if they were going to give it, she ended up being very persistent and then they just gave in and gave her it. Considering you have a "full report" and "encounter report" I think you'll be ok. But there might be an issue because I'm pretty sure the patient summary is supposed to reflect details about your current health, don't know if the other reports you listed having will do that. Either way I think you're going to be ok, just be wary about the info Knightsbridge gives over the phone because according to many here the info hasn't been the most accurate...
