Very fast way to never see me again. 2nd of Aug mate. Need a few weeks for the misses to start a surrogacy jou...

Re: Vetting Process

Had my call last night, date booked but unfortunately feeling a bit deflated as there's some confusion around my GCSE certs. Can't believe you can get to this stage and it still be an issue.

Re: Vetting Process

Yes mate, it does do that. I even had a text to say they'd call within 7 days to give a start date... that was over 2 weeks ago. I was advised at my fitness and medical to keep ringing them so they don't forget you.

Re: Vetting Process

Thanks northerngal, erm I did that form just over 2 weeks ago. By the sounds of it, there is no real science behind it, some people have waited ages and some not so much. Maybe I am lucky and they want to give me a date pending passing the medical of course.

Nice one bearguy!
