CORONAVIRUS – REMOTE EXAMINATIONS
As part of MedCo’s ongoing review process, Users should note the following update to the guidance issued on 3rd November 2020.
With immediate effect all Users should refer to any relevant national and/or local restrictions that are in place in relation to asking claimants to travel in exceptional circumstances, together with the MedCo guidance published on 3rd July 2020, before deciding whether or not it is essential for an examination to be conducted face to face or by remote means.
However, please note that MedCo considers that the general Government exemption for “hospital GP and other medical appointments or visits where you have had an accident or are concerned about your health” may not be considered to be exceptional circumstances. All Users should read this notice in conjunction with the MedCo guidance issued on 3rd July 2020. Read the full guidance here...
For the avoidance of doubt this notice applies to England and Wales.
