Outland, UK. Applied a year ago and they’ve just requested the medical.
Same thing happened to me during my application. pnp inland and the processing time was 18 months. I did a upfront medical before submitting the application ,and it was expired when they came to that stage. I got a MDR 16 months into the process, so I booked one right away. The good news came just one week after I did that medical.
