The latest government guidance is to stay alert, this means you should:

  • Wash hands: keep washing hands regularly
  • Cover face: where a face covering over your mouth and nose in enclosed spaces
  • Make space: stay at least a metre away from people who are not in your household.

If you are feeling unwell, get a test and do not leave home for at least 10 days.

UKIM Appointments

Appointments with UKIM can now be held face-face, subject to strict government and local regulatory guidelines, in place to ensure everybody’s safety.

If, however, you would prefer to have a virtual appointment, which takes place via video-conference, please inform your case officer.

Please also inform your case officer if you do not have the facilities to take part in a virtual assessment or if you need to re-schedule the appointment.

Video medical examinations

You’ll be given a choice to reschedule another face to face examination or agree to a video examination as an alternative by UKIM.

You do not have to agree to a video medical examination, and we won’t consider this to be non-engagement if you choose not to do so. However, please be aware that if you opt for a face to face examination, it is likely to result in further delays to your case.

If you’ve already had a UKIM appointment

To complete a medical report, UKIM experts require copies of your medical information like GP records and OH records. Most UKIM experts can carry out examinations before they receive these other medical records. However, they do need them so their reports can be finalised.

Given the pressure on all healthcare professionals at this time, it’s anticipated that there will be delays in receiving these medical records as work relating to Covid-19 is prioritised.

This might mean a delay in completing your medical report.

DNA Legal appointments

Appointments with DNA Legal can now be held face-face, subject to strict government and regulatory guidelines, in place to ensure everybody’s safety.

If, however, you would prefer to have a virtual appointment, which takes place via video-conference, please inform your case officer.

Please also inform your case officer if you do not have the facilities to take part in a virtual assessment or if you need to re-schedule the appointment. They will set up a suitable time and arrange this with the medical examiner. Please inform your case officer if you do not have the facilities to take a video call.
