The application will not be suspended. The visa canít be granted when the applicant is offshore, but that is not the same thing.
In terms of the original question: if the travel is urgent, put in the application now and explain the situation fully, including explaining the urgency. You can say you have asked for a doctorís letter and will upload that as and when received.
