I've been in vetting about 4/5 weeks, I can imagine there's a long way to go still!! Good luck though :)

No I've not been referred for a decision, I sent off my pre-employment check forms, my counter signatory has already been contacted and I've had my Optima health forms which I've also sent back so no idea what else is being checked :)

Did miss a call this morning! from a no caller ID and not expecting any other calls, rang SSCL and they said the only outstanding item is my medical so could have been them. annoyingly I couldn't call the number back, anyone else experienced this?

Ive missed a call from them before, not medical but just them in general, I had to ring up and request someone to call me back, I wish they called on a number you could ring back on! Or leave a voicemail with a number ! Best of luck mate!
