  1. Does anybody have or know where I can get about 300 reclaimed 12 x 24 inch roofing slates? Roof job ground to a halt because of a lack of slates - so rather keen to locate some!
  2. Unless they have a holiday booked themselves of course....
  3. I agree, and like you think that they have only very recently realised how important it is to have something in place. Up until a few weeks back we were being told to get a letter from our GP or print of the page from patient access. This could and should have been sorted ages ago.
  4. But they are sorting it and we will have the NHS App by 28th June...according to HQ anyway. NHS digital are 'sorting Wales first, then us apparently.

    Hopefully the investigation will live up to its code name and not take too long to complete. Many here have a keen interest in knowing why this situation came to be. Especially those who lost their jobs.

    If that third party is Manx they would. The fact that the feds have taken the case on must mean they have been presented with evidence that suggests a crime may have been committed.

    I doubt either of those are true. I think it likely that all investigations by the FCU are given a codename. This name has links to aviation in that Westland made both a helicopter and a twin engined fighter that carried that name, plus in meteorological terms it's a dangerous wind. It can also describe an energetic person or a tumultuous process according to my dictionary. All may be appropriate.

    'Operation Whirlwind' It must be serious stuff with a name like that.
  9. It does - screenshot below - but not in the format that will likely be accepted as proof of vaccination and testing status. You will need the NHS app for that. The NHS app does most of what patient access does anyway. I ordered my last repeat prescription through the NHS app.
  10. Being linked into the same system that 'powers' the NHS App will also allow you to have a proof of vaccination letter generated and sent to you. I believe this letter has a unique QR code on it which can be scanned just as the QR code on the app itself is. You won't need a phone, but you will need to get online to generate the letter. https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/coronavirus-vaccination/covid-status-letter/
  11. It's also visible on patient access if you already have that. On mine it's shown in the contact details section of the account menu.
  12. The Jersey Government website suggests that if vaccinated, in effect, you have a test to release protocol to follow if coming from a red zone.
  13. There is an art to arguing both ends of against the middle....give her credit.
  14. Can non residents take advantage of the test and release protocol if unjabbed 2+2?
  15. I was thinking more along the lines of vision standards for driving and hiked or refused insurance premiums for pre existing medical conditions. Obesity is normally something you can address - but if you are too short to go on a roller coaster, then that is outside of your control.
  16. I understand people's frustration, and perhaps those who are waiting for jabs shouldn't have to pay for testing - that seems fair enough to me.
  17. So should we wait until everyone has been double jabbed to make sure nobody has an advantage?
  18. Exactly. There are many examples where people are prevented from doing things because of medical conditions, size etc. Accommodations are made where possible, and as you say, the current testing and release protocols aren't too arduous in any event. Those who are still waiting their vaccine, yes, it's unfortunate. But, their time will come shortly and the rest of us shouldn't have to wait until that point. Antivaxxers - they chose to be part of the problem not the solution. No sympathy here.
  19. It will be interesting to see how this is administered. Who checks vaccine status and where? Do we just go for it or do we still need to let IOMG know our travel plans? Direction notices will still need to be issued for the unjabbed I would have thought.
  20. You may be wasting your time -there is no credit for previous infection that I can see in the order. https://www.tynwald.org.im/business/opqp/sittings/20182021/2021-SD-0205.pdf
  21. Another big change is the removal of the requirement to isolate if you have been a close contact of a positive case. That will make a huge difference in how we live with the inevitable community cases that will pop up at some point. And yes, happening from 28th.
  22. It would appear so, it seems to be a replacement for the move to level 1, but admittedly it's not very clear. At present, whilst it is not considered appropriate to move to Borders Level 1, or Level 2, offering the 2 + 2 vaccination exemption and the extension of the UK/Channel Islands test and release pathway to travellers who have been in Ireland is considered to represent a low and acceptable level of additional risk. Interesting that Eire is going to be included too.
  23. John is 100% correct. Lets hope Mr Gove remembers his chat with Mr Quayle and actual does something about it.
  24. I stand corrected. I read the 3rd rather than the 9th for the date of the document.
