Default Medical form & check?

Hi im considering working on a cruise. But I need more info on the medical.
Is it 1form you take to a GP & both sign? Then pass it on to your employer.
Or do they check records aswell?

It's a form that you take to any doctor - usually 2 part - one being history, and the other the medical tests. Just your basic pre-employment physical that you'd do for most jobs - includes blood work, STD, lung xray, hearing and sight testing, etc . . . the couple companies I've worked for have standard form that they'll literally check AS your are signing on the ship to make sure it's valid, if not, you're not coming aboard.

Ok thanks for your help, I thought they may have there own GPS who go through your medical history to??
So it's a valid form they check it's signed & dated from a GP?

I wouldn't take the chance on NOT revealing any pertinent medical history. You also need to disclose any meds you are currently on.

As you 'check in' to the ship, there are nurses/doctors on duty to look over the forms of everyone coming onboard. They look over everything. Once I saw a Staff Captain be denied boarding when he didn't have all the proper blood work done. He had to join the next port with the right test completed.
