As part of the application process, Tier 2 Dependent Visa candidates are required to participate in a mandatory biometric appointment with British authorities, or their appointed representatives. Don’t worry, it won’t hurt a bit!

All Australian, New Zealand and Canadian citizens will be provided with full access to the British National Health Service (NHS) for the entire term of their visa. This will grant you full rights to the health services that everyday UK citizens get, including visits to the doctor and the hospital, and access to prescription medications at the same prices.
A health service surcharge is payable at the time of purchasing the Settlement Visa. The cost of this surcharge (if any) will vary from applicant to applicant, and will be advised once we have all of your application details. This fee will cover you for the entirety of your visa, whenever you may choose to use it.
When you arrive in the UK and receive your Biometric Residence Permit (BRP) card, just flash the card at appropriate NHS locations to gain access to one of the best healthcare systems in the world.
When you receive your application forms they may look extremely simple, but be warned, one slip-up on the Tier 2 Dependent Visa application can result in a swiftly rejected bid. True to the English spirit, the British High Commission are a particularly cautious bunch, and are remarkably unforgiving of any errors that may have been made on your application. If they sense that something is amiss, they may well turn you down with neither a second thought nor a refund. That’d be one costly typo!
