I think the standards UKBA would probably be looking for would be any medium to large hospital that does out-patient testing, or a clinic with a locally very high reputation. Do you live in a city, or near one? Here in the UK where my husband and I live we would go about 20 miles south of us to have testing done, it's possible you have the same kind of situation there?
Can you check around and see who does certified skin tests? It might be as simple as a visit to your general practitioner.
I've done my last X-ray in a local state clinic as part of medical check up before starting my new job.
I live in the city, but I am sure this certified centre will be in Almaty, where the visa centre is located. One of my friends did his check up for Australian visa there...
However, part of me really hopes that they allow some grace period before implementing these changes. So if they say they are going to make it a part of summer changes, I assume it will not take place earlier than July? How long the grace period normally is?
Thanks in advance!
