2. You will bring your current or last medical certificate with you to your medical.
3. You will bring any relevant reports or medical investigation findings to your medical, unless you have already done so.
4. You understand that the CAA no longer directly deals with pilots who have aeromedical queries but directs them to their AME.
5. You are responsible for the provision of all requested information required to make a decision about your aeromedical fitness. It is neither the responsibility of the investigating/reporting doctor nor of the CAA or mediciELITE to chase these.

The fees for casework can be found on the Sickness Management Services page of this website. You will also be provided a copy of the fees prior to your instruction to us to perform your casework. Alternatively, you may choose to pay an annual fee of £100 at the time of the medical examination for the provision of all casework that may become necessary in the 12 month period from the date of the medical or the expiry of the medical certificate, whichever is later.
10. You agree that where a referral is necessary, NHS waiting times are typically longer than private sector comparisons which may impact on how quickly any additional information required is received.

2. mediciELITE will provide aeromedical advice free of charge for existing pilots/ATCOs who have doubt or are aware of a decrease in their medical fitness.
3. Where additional information or investigations are required in order to make a decision about your aeromedical fitness, you will be provided, free of charge, with guidance on how to obtain achieve this.
4. You have the right of appeal where a medical certificate application is rejected.
5. You can also complain about any aspect of the service you receive from us. mediciELITE has a robust complaints process. Please address any complaints in writing to firstname.lastname@example.org in the first instance.
