    Hi all! Well im having such a game with the uni! I sent my completed DBS form first class on 8th April back to the university, the university didnt send it off in june. I contacted the DBS to track the status of my check on 27th July and they told me that the form was sent back to the university in june as there was an error- the university had not filled out their part correctly. I emailed the university straight away-i received no reply. I then called on 30th July and spoke to someone from admissions who seemed confused and couldnt give me a straight answer which really didnt help!! They then told me that somebody would contact me either later that day or the next day...I never heard from them. I am really stuck on what to do as nobody is helping me, it is more frustrating that i live in telford, shropshire and cannot sort out any moving in dates etc until me DBS is sorted..and i need to move before sept 16th.
    I just feel really let down by the uni, like they dont care and cant be bothered. Everytime i call up nobody knows whats going on and i get different stories and they just say someone will call back but they done. Its got to the point where im considering wether to go!

    Oh Molly that sucks. Have you rang the DBS people again to see if they've had it back from the uni yet?

    I know their busy with loads of applications but I get the feeling no one cares much about helping. I wasn't even told that I'm waiting for a check up appointment but apparently my application was sent to the hospital june 6th and that's what I'm waiting for. I rang again today to see if there's any way I can check that I've not missed any emails or if I can get the name of the hospital so I can ring them directly to ask but again, no straight answers I'm coming from North East england so I need to sort accommodation and packing my things, I can't just jump on the tube from my parents and commute until its all sorted.
    Handed in my months notice at work today but I'm preparing for it all to go down the drain at the last minute so I can't go... :\


    Has anyone heard from a hospital about a health check up at all?

    Hiiya, sorry for the late reply haven't checked in a long time. No, i won't be staying in halls unfortunately, I'm going to be sharing a flat with my bestfriend! I'm glad you also got accepted, it has been a tiring process with admissions! I only got my DBS form back TODAY!.. any clue on when we are going in for an interview with the placements?
