Cruise Line Medicals
The YEHS team has more than 20 years experience in Cruise Line Medicals and have attended several Miami week long conferences on Cruise line Health Issues. We have a fixed price for Cruise Line medicals of £450 (which includes the Chest X-ray).
Extra payments are required for:
1) a courier £17
2) MMR vaccine £50 but this needs to be ordered in advance as we do not keep it in stock. We can book a local clinic for you but the price is higher.
3) MMR antibody test £60.
Fasting is NOT required.
We ask you to bring:
1) Photo ID
2) The relevant forms (as back up we have copies but please arrive extra early to fill these in - allow at least 20 minutes)
3) Proof of MMR vaccination
4) Passport sized photo
5) When with us ONLY we will ask you to do a urine test, which is tested for drugs, diabetes, blood and protein (also pregnancy in females)
If you have any existing long-term (chronic) medical conditions like diabetes, asthma, epilepsy or a past mental health condition (especially an eating disorder) please TRY to bring a signed letter from your specialist or GP ideally explaining that your condition is well-controlled or currently inactive so that your final employer will be reassured and not have any cause to worry about your health whilst you are away (this also helps reassure the insurers).
a) A physical examination but we do NOT do smear tests;
b) Take blood for a wide range of things including HIV (hence consent form required);
c) Urine test (as above);
d) Your Chest X-ray is done locally by our colleagues.
Please note that for the ship;
You MUST HAVE the hard copy of the original paperwork to take on board (you physically collect this from us or we courier (never regular post) to you for a fee.
We email you a scanned copy to the cruise line and to yourself.
Please note that the Cruise Line may ask for additional medical information or re-tests at your expense.
