You should bring:
Your assessment may ask more of you depending on your specific assessment requirements. Check your assessment paperwork to be sure.
If you have been requested to undergo a medical health assessment on behalf of a company, the company will pay all fees.
If you have personally requested a medical, 50% of the fee is required at the time of the booking, and the remainder is required on the day.
We endeavour to book your medical at the closest WHA facility possible to your location. However, some travel may be required due to the nature of your medical, or available appointment times. If you have any concerns with the location or appointment time allocated, please contact our Australian Customer Service Team at 1300 552 722.

A Pre-Screen Questionnaire (PSQ) is a standalone screening tool booked through the WHA portal and completed on any internet-connected device. A PSQ is reviewed by a health assessor before any in-person health assessment is conducted.
A PSQ can also screen lower risk roles at an affordable price and in a reduced timeframe. Depending on the role you need to fill, the outcome of a PSQ may be a job offer or the first step towards a full, more in-depth health assessment.
