Partner Visa - medical assessment

Hi all!
I'm new here so I'm sorry if this has been asked already. And I'm sorry if this is a stupid question!
I'm preparing a partner Visa application and was wondering which medical assessment I need to book in. I have not filed my Visa application yet.
On the bupa medical Visa services site, it gives you several different types of medical assessment tests to tick such as
Medical Examination (501)*
Chest X-Ray (502)*
Serum Creatinine (704)*
HIV test (707)*
Hepatitis B test (708)*
Syphilis Test (712)*
Liver Function Tests (715)*
Hepatitis C test (716)*
TB Screening Test (IGRA/TST) (719)
Which one do I need to do? Alternatively, should I do all?

Once you have applied for the partner visa, you get HAP id and a referral letter for the medical check. You should not to it before applying and the test can be different for different people. The processing times have gone up to 28 months onshore and it is not recommended to do it straight away as you will then have to do it again.

I did mine after 6 months but most wait for a request from case officer.

my wife had hers the week after her bridging visa was granted, and the reason for that was that my work colleague had his wife's 820 application approved in 4 months after lodgment and we would have hated to be contacted by a case officer wanting to know why we had not had the medical assessment done.

Yes I can see you applied recently and long time after myself. It will always be an individual choice. I hope someone will open my case within 1.5 years, but am aware I might have to fork out 360AUD again if not Doing it at time of application I think is too early, when processing times are 28 months perhaps. But of course its always a personal choice. I will keep the forum updated if I get my grant anytime soon
