    Because you used to just book a test online. If they now want you to speak to a nurse before you book one what else are they doing?

    I tried the site again and managed to get a test @ Stafford 1:30 today. The nurse called a little while later and was great. Asked lots of questions and we will be getting another call later today for another check up. She was relieved we had managed to get a test.

    But does the nurse then ask if you really need a test ?
    When I were a lad it was "the national provision of services available to everyone" without such an interrogation.

    Just asked more specific questions on symptoms. She has a cough and a temp, even when she is feeling better school wont allow for back unless we have a negative result or following 2 weeks isolation.

    Anyway, just back from the test, children need to be done by an adult, I sat in the back. She didn't like it and got quite upset but was really brave. Test results within 48 hours.

    I have a feeling that wont be the last test she has to do

    So school still won't allow her back if the test is negative?

    Dreading that daughter may end up being sent home from school if another in her bubble has symptoms.

    Sorry, they will allow her back following a negative result. I have amended my previous post for clarity

    World beating.

    Not functional at all, but world beating in its non-functionality.

    Does anyone have a picture of BoZo eating a bacon sandwich?
