  1. Lateral flows are abnout 75% reliable and picked up on our 8 cases at work. If you test positive for this you need a PCR which is the swab of throat and nose and long wait. Temperatures are not reliable as you are measuring skin temp and not body temp. if the care home residents have had 2 jabs and visitors wear PPE that should help, however I do worry that the ones with dementia might find mask wearing relatives alarming in some cases. Have to say UK has done a great job with the vaccine, but people are now thinking they can go out and mix. Why are people so stupid? sorry problems with forum - the laughing emojis were an error.
  2. I marshalled at a clinic on Saturday second time I had done it. OH was on the door - but boy have things changed - stroppy people saying they dont want this vaccine , why wasnt I told it was Pfizer/ Astra zenca blah blah blah. For goodness sake be thankful you are getting it. Also the stroppy herberts who hung around eyeballing me all afternoon cos they wanted a vaccine if any left over. The stroppy woman who wouldnt show me the appointment on her phone - shame on you all. But I have a word of thanks to the lovely Asian man who having heard me telling OH we needed some arrows to point the way - handed me a roll of tape from the 瞿 shop - thank you - you made me realise there are some nice people in this world. We marshall for a charity that OH works for - supports old people - and they asked us if our volunteers could help out. First time I loved it but not so keen now. Seems some woman on social media posted there was vaccines left over at the end of the clinic. Where is Jeremy Clarkson when you need him? No one would cross him. He marshalled for his local clinic, can imagine anyone annoying him 不
  3. Free sweets! I am going to the wrong vaccination hub不
  4. My cousin a nurse had hers today. They were offered tea,coffee and a biscit afterwards. I was not happy. Didnt get offered anything. 不
  5. Apologies in advance if already posted this but in December our HCA at work (GP surgery) came to work when she should have been isolating as son had symptons of COVID. I have no idea if she was disciplined although I wasnt the only one firing off emails to manager. Her sister (receptionist) came into work last week with symptons. She tested positive with lateral flow test at weekend. Since then 3 more staff have symptons. I wrote an email to the manager voicing my concerns. She said she wanted to know if any of us had so much as a snuffle . So yesterday feeling like I have a cold - eyes felt watery and have a headache I emailed her. So today off sick. My lateral flow test was negative but sent off a proper test today. The symptons arent like covid ones but the secretary who tested positive has same sort of symptons as me so bit worried. The sister has now she said tested negative on proper test and is saying it was a cold. Last week she could hardly breathe and was coughing. I am so angry I could blow up. They are Romanian and dont believe its an issue - but it is for many. I have had my vaccine but my OH has only just had his. I dont feel its been managed well at all. I am nearly 60 with asthma. Thankfully my elderly aunt is 100 miles away so cant infect her if I have. Self combusting as I type.
  6. Probably caused by Trump!!
  7. Geoid wish you all well. I am the only person apart from 4 GP's in my practice I know who has had vaccine. I hope you all get it soon. Just hope it does the job.
  8. IMO all school staff should be vaccinated from the head mistress to kitchen staff. My friend works in NHS hospital canteen - shes on the mend at last but tiredand still has diarrhoea. Sadly her mum of 94 got it but less vicuous. I got my jab at 8.30 on 31st Dec. Achey arm and tired for 10 hours after but so pleased to have had it. My husband wont get it for months. I have told him no shopping - i will do as will eventually get some cover. I woudve gone at 3am in the morning was so keen to get. Hope you get yours too Andy. My aunt is East Midalnds still hasnt heard anything. Why are they so slow? I get really stressed about her as so far away and her cousin has it now. She was really low on Monday and thats not like her shes a stoic old bird. Not like her wimpy niece.
  9. SD you'll all be sozzled. Thanks for new recipe Columbian. Love family recipes.
  10. Gelatine and I are sworn enemies, i try to avoid, but if have to use pray first for success喫 ,
  11. Tier 4 here in London. My best friend in Leicestershire has covid. Heart breaking to hear her crying earlier in the week with fear. She sounded dreadful. Lives alone has a b/f but they dont live together. She looks after elderly mum in her 90s. Track and trace have been wonderful, ring her daily and gave her emergency number if really anxious. Shes asthmatic and works in hospital canteen. If people could here the cough and the fear they wouldn't be so blooming complacent. I'm a trained nurse but felt helpless and tearful after talking to her. Shes a bit better today. Managed to wash her hair but that exhausted her. They expect her back on Thurs, told her no way. Shes never going to be fit enough. Stay safe all.
  12. Lovely pictures and thatcake looks scrumptious. Glad I am past the Father Christmas stage, I dont think I could explain social distancing of elves reindeer etc to a child and then expain why FC can come in a house but friends cant. AAAAh too much for my brain. I think false news of a vaccine in 3 weeks and GP surgeries being open over Christmas is making me grumpy, I dont want to give up not seeing family after months apart. If that makes me selfish dont care. Sorry stressful week. A bit of pear cake wouldnt go amiss.
  13. Looking thro Netflix for another programme to watch we found one about a killer disease taking over the world. No way I said to OH too close to home. Stay safe all. Going off to chew a curtain Sat out under carport with ES and OH drinking homemade soup. This will be what the grandchildren will ask about when we have them . Great plague of 2020
  14. Rant away Andy. I am trying not to rant as my blood pressure soars. Am hearing a lot from patients many who have recovered and others who have the long term problems . As a nurse feel I'll equipped on how to advise as it's all so new. Asthma is my speciality but not a covid expert. Wish your niece well Patricia.
