Re: Covid-19 Pandemic Thread

Despite all the stories about medical staff in London hospitals being driven to collapse by the workload, it appears that London has ceased all uptake of recently-retired doctors who were asked to volunteer - they are no being politely told we don't want you. Does anyone with an inside track know i...

Re: Covid-19 Pandemic Thread

Bastards. Is the "discretion of the local authority" a peculiarly Welsh thing? I'm not sure to be honest JohnToo. I'm a bit shaken by it at the moment, I suspect this will be the end of the business if I can't sort it, aside from the financial hit that I'd be looking at you start to question what t...

Re: Covid-19 Pandemic Thread

The Welsh gov have followed the UK gov and have put in place certain strategies to help small businesses. As you are already aware, due to my normal employment status the best I could get is UC, one of the reasons for the NHS job. However, there is a rate relief scheme that, amongst others, says ret...

I suggest you speak to the HR team of your employing body (the CCG or Trust). They will need to provide you with the relevant details - although they may refer you to their IT Service Desk.

Re: Covid-19 Pandemic Thread

Been to our Nightingale a few times now, including today and yesterday. Looks like I'll be posted there permanently. Just me and another temp porter at the mo. Plan is to use the hospitals, we have three on our patch (although one is tiny and the other is blink and you'd miss it, mind the main one i...

Re: Covid-19 Pandemic Thread

Regulator could you give me a bit of info/advice about logging into the NHS ESR please? I don't have a user name or password as yet, there is an option to request both but to do this I have to give the email associated with my account, my application was done through Trac recruitment and although I...

Re: Covid-19 Pandemic Thread

My fear at the moment is that it won't be needed at the moment, but will be come September and the second wave of infection. Especially if restrictions are eased too quickly. Yes, the people I was talking to were boss level, the building has to be returned as it was, and, as they have a business to...

It is a great thing that you are doing.
That's a very kind thing for you to say, thank you, but I'm just humping stuff around so better people can do their jobs.

Re: Covid-19 Pandemic Thread

Was working in our local Nightingale today with 7 or 8 others. One of the buildings on our Center Parc type holiday place has been taken over and coverted for use. It'll have around 150 beds and has 3 wards and a palliative unit. They also added portakabins onto the building, which they've converted...

Re: Covid-19 Pandemic Thread

Better to have a surplus of trained pairs of hands waiting for something to do than a lack of them when things suddenly get busy. That's my experience anyway. Well done Sonic! Absolutely agree, and as there would only be one reason why we would all be busy I'd rather it stayed as it is. A number of...
