    • I agree with the guys, funeral expenses first. This is a website I used when I was dealing with probate for my mother and my OH found it useful too. If you scroll down a bit, there's a list of priorities in order. Barclays can't change that.   https://www.bereavementadvice.org/topics/probate-and-legal/insolvent- estates/   And another one from the government's Money Advice Service, scroll dow to Step 3.   https://www.moneyadviceservice.org.uk/en/articles/dealing-with-the-debts-of-someone-who-has-died   HB
    • The 'test, test, test' call from WHO specifically applies to just ''suspected cases'' and those who recently had contact with confirmed cases. WHO isn't calling for speculative testing.   I assume Prof Tobyjug is referring to a PCR test but as testing the entire nation for anything is a fantasy it doesn't matter much.
    • The Three-Body Problem https://www.amazon.co.uk/Three-Body-Problem-Cixin-Liu-ebook/dp/B00S8FCJCQ/ref=sr_1_1?crid=3C1EMC34CA27V&dchild=1&keywords=3+body+problem&qid=1586240421&sprefix=3+bo%2Caps%2C229&sr=8-1      
    • I don’t see some users posts, but since they’ve been quoted .........   I agree (in parts) with 2 contributors postings.   WHO says “test, test, test”, so more tests ARE key. That is part agreeing with one contributor.   I also agree with cjcregg. One has to understand the limitations of a test : (sensitivity, specificity and its positive and negative predictive values - which involves sensitivity / specificity AND prevalence!).   One also has to understand which test, to apply those limitations. a) RNA NAAT? (Commonly called PCR, though PCR is a tradename, so ‘PCR’ is to ‘NAAT’ like ‘Hoover’ is to ‘vacuum cleaner’) b) Antigen testing? c) Antibody testing? (If so, IgM? IgG? Both??)   Knowing which test(s), their limitations, and thus what the result actually MEANS is more important than a blanket statement of “test everyone!”, (and repeatedly ??! ) .... especially as it allows prioritisation of who gets what test to maximise benefit, until “testing for all” is more than a pipe-dream .....   Would you repeat a positive IgG test? If so, in what circumstances??
    • Just out of interest, how long did it take you to formulate this conclusion? I'm not looking for a particularly accurate answer, just round it up to the nearest nano second.    How is this going to work then?   Where are the medical personnel and laboratory staff required to undertake this massive project going to come from? Now this is just a stab in the dark but I'd imagine they'd be quite busy at the moment.   Even South Korea, who are recognised as having one of the most aggressive testing policies have only managed to test 1% of their population. You clearly have no conception as to the scale of what you're proposing.   Even if it was possible to plan, organise and execute it would take years to achieve, by which time all the data would have been redundant and completely meaningless. I was tested last week and it took 2 days for the result, which by the time I received it was already out of date as I was then and now just as likely to be infected as I was when I took the test.   Think about it.

I went to my local job centre a few days ago and they are going to put me on the work and health programme.  However, after looking on google it is for people that have been out of work for 24 months.  I last worked in August 2017 so do I have to take part in this now or not.

 

I have to visit the job centre tomorrow about this programme.

 

Has anyone been on this before ?

 

Thanks

As far as I understand this course, it is for people who have been out of work for a period and who have suffered from a health condition, which might cause them difficulty in obtaining work.  

 

I think when the course started it was originally for those who have been out of work for 24 months or more, but I seem to remember reading that a referral could be made after 12 months.

 

The course provider has been employed by DWP to help people find work. So yes there will be some gentle pressure to find suitable work. They work with different employers in your area, arrange job trials,  help you with applications, CV writing,  advise you of rights if you have disability, help you with any issues you might have after starting work.

 

If you don't want to do this course, you will have to show the Work Coach evidence of the steps you are taking to find work. Or if you are not ready healthwise, what help you are receiving to get you ready to start work again. The Work Coach will want to see that what you doing in terms of applications has a reasonable chance of success. 


We could do with some help from you.

Thanks for the reply, I don't have any health issues that will stop me from getting a job.

Ok this Government website should help you.

 

https://www.gov.uk/work-health-programme

 

Says voluntary unless out of work for 24 months or more.

 

It might be that a referral takes awhile to go through and they are wanting to push you more to find work. I.e. If you don't want to go on a course, it might spur you on to making more job applications. Your claimant commitment could be reviewed to increase what you are required to do.
