Also, I thought people studying here first came on an extendable visitor visa, and after some period of successful studies (6-months, maybe?), a resident visa could be obtained. Then, you get your medical check done locally, and take it with your paperwork from the school to the NIA for an ARC. Has that changed?

I would just go to another doctor (a walk in clinic for example) if you don't want this letter being attached to your file.
Sorry if I misunderstood you.

It's only good for filtering out people with HIV and horrendous skin disorders that might be mistaken for leprosy, so why deal with the hassle in the UK (unless you are HIV+ or have horrendous skin disorders that might be mistaken for leprosy)?

But if you're applying to the Taiwanese authorities in the UK rather than here, a covering letter like that might be a bit of a hurdle. Your GP must be pretty seriously concerned about your current state to take such a step, though.
