New job, awkward medical questionnaire
I've been offered a fantastic new job - had the formal offer in a letter - but they have also sent me a medical questionnaire which I am concerned about due to the job offer being subject to such.
In other words, I fill it in, they look into it, and if there is something in there that doesn't meet their criteria, the job offer could potentially be withdrawn.
I don't want to hand my notice in at my current job yet because of this, but I am concerned to approach my new employer and make my dilemma known. Obviously, if I hand my notice in, and then my new employer withdraws their offer, I'm up the proverbial creek.
There is nothing in my medical history that concerns me, but that isn't to say it won't concern them.
What should I do?
Fill in the questionnaire, hand in my notice and cross my fingers; or fill in the questionnaire, then speak to my prospective employer and voice my concerns explaining that I won't be accepting the job until I know I have satisfied their requirements in regard to the questionnaire? I really don't want them to think I am being fussy, as this is a fantastic career move for me, but by the same token, I don't want to be put in a very difficult situation if things don't go as planned.
I have to give 4 weeks notice at my current employer, and I won't be starting at my new place for at least 6 weeks, so I do have some leeway in the timings.
Your thoughts are most welcome. What would you do?
