Pre-employment Medical Examinations

Are you job-seeking? Many employers require pre-employment medical examinations to assess and evaluate your ability to safely perform the requirements of a specified job. Pre-employment medicals are one of the services offered at Goonellabah Medical Centre. These examinations often require more time and may include particular tests to be done such as hearing tests, ECGs and blood tests. The employer often specifies the requirement for some tests in their documentation. If you are unsure, please feel free to speak with our reception staff when booking.
