Oh really? That's useful!

Do you know what it is? I called PR today and they said they hadn't received my health clearance, this was done like 5 weeks ago. :slno:

I need to follow it up.

If you phone the original number I think it tells you to call the new number.

I see a lot of people have the same problems!

I'm going to call them this morning to see what's been going on, it might be that it just hasn't been uploaded to the vetting them yet or something.

Afternoon All,

I'm just off the phone to OH after my appointment over a couple of yes answers i gave.

I'm still a bit confused as she now says the medical check takes up to 4 week's for them to give you the Green or Red Light.

From previous post's ive read, the phone call is normally for clerance of fitness to work? instead they are sending me a letter to give them permission to access my medical records.

Is this normal?

Just after abit of reassurance im looking to much into this. Is it purely a formality process? To make sure everything is OK?

Touch wood I get the green light, how long does the process take after being cleared? Is it purely a case by case option. Looking at the forum's some people are waiting 9-10 month's.

Im also a tad worried about a pre booked holiday I have in September. I did make them aware and they informed me it shouldnt be a drama, but with the POELT being at particular times throughtout the year, im worried they are going to intertwine and the admin team will conveniantly have no record of me informing them :slbg:

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank's all!

I had my assessment and was cleared there and then on the phone. My GP was not contacted.

Perhaps there's a reason they want to check your medical records, I'm thinking maybe there's some conditions where they want to double check your fitness/suitability to work as a prison officer.

With regards to my previous post; I checked with OH Assist today whether or not they had sent my clearance to the Vetting Service, they explained that they were uploaded on to the system that same day. It's up to Vetting to check their system and collect the information and add if to your file. Obviously, they haven't yet done that.

At least I now know it's done, maybe they'll check once all the other information has been correlated.

With regards to the holiday, I also have something booked for the end of August.

I was informed that if my training overlaps with this, I would have to either do a POELT before or after my holiday so it's uninterrupted.

Hopefully my vetting goes through soon, otherwise I might not be starting until Autumn this year!

I had my online OH assess interview last week and they are looking further into mine. A past issue that they are unsure of. The process takes 4 weeks. So it's out of my hands now all I can do is wait.

So it seems they do this on a case-by-case basis.

I'm sure it's nothing to worry about, might be worth having a chat with your GP. :slbg:
