Vetting nearly completed.....

Post by RS2 » Tue May 16, 2017 3:54 pm

Today I called SS for an update! (My vetting start d on the 18th March)!
They told me that my vetting is nearly completed and my medical is pending?
They said I should get a call from a third party? Has anyone else had this yet?!

They said they send my info off on the 2nd May, but as it is a 3rd party cannot track this? Just wanted to know if anyone else is in the same boat!?

The third party is OHassist, they will either call you or have you fill out a health questionnaire once that's done they will either recommend you or not for the role (they will tell you their outcome also) if they do put you forward and that's all SS are waiting on then you should get a call shortly after SS and your establishment figure out a suitable training course placement.

I'm going through the same issue. Seems forms/info has gone "missing" as I completed the forms with OH assist at the beginning of my application. Now I'm waiting for a call from them to complete the application/vetting process. Seems during a changeover the info got lost somehow. I was given Oh assists number so I may try to call them tomorrow to see if I can speed up the process at all....

I actually called OH Assist so it does look like mine has been lost! They even told me the person there sent my results to and they said my medical was cleared! Keep calling SS and they say they will get someone to call me back ... Still waiting! Just so frustrating!

That's the thing, I found through my emails that it was sent straight after my RAD! They've basically lost it! Just a nightmare to speak to someone who gives the correct information! Prison officer @ Wandsworth! You!?

Do they only tell you if its been failed, or do OH assist tell you if youve passed it as well.
I filled out mine 2 weeks ago but have had no info back

WHen i rang up SS they just said all im waiting on is ctc and 2 references, they said they had my medical form back so, im assuming that means it was passed.

OH Assist said my medical had been cleared and that they had passed all the info on to SS! SS said my vetting has been completed but my medical is pending, so they cannot tell me whether I have passed or not!

Oh well that's not too bad! If you've already had your medical back then surely you'll be fine! It's just such a long processs!!

I see! Makes me feel slightly better that I'm not the only one! I just don't understand that if people are contacting them and telling them this, why don't they have a better system of sorting it!
Mine was back in March too! I've even been given the name of the person it was sent to!!

I spoke to them on Tuesday and told them it was all done and sorted and they were going to pass it on to someone. I am gonna call again later today to see if it was passed on. It's the only thing holding me up. My vetting was complete two poss three weeks back and it's just this causing the issues.
