    Anyone else having trouble with the CRB checks? I've been checking every so often to see how's progressing and now all of the updates have been wiped -- Application start date, end date etc. It still says the application is complete, but when I go to the tracking service for it, I get a message saying "The DBS application form reference number is invalid."

    Weirdly, it's taking an age to load the CRB sites, so I'm hoping they're having a loading issue and I'm just being paranoid, but I'm worried it's been cancelled based on my health questionnaire. Did anyone else have to disclose a disciplinary on their health thing?

    Best bet with those is to just call the guy dealing with your case. Not worth losing patience over, especially since you've already waited around 5 months by this point.

    Hi all.
    I had my provisional offer around Easter.
    10 days later (Monday just gone) I received my 3 PEC forms via Email.
    Health. Character. Pension.
    (Names of 2 references and DBS were also required)
    I filled out all the forms and sent them back the same day.
    Today in the post I received a letter from OH
    (Occupational Health) asking me to fill in an online health questionnaire.
    :-/ :-/ :-/
    Please can someone tell me ......
    Does this mean that they are not happy with the one I already sent ?
    Or is this the normal next step ?

    TIA
    It's a normal step. I think everyone gets one. Just make sure you do the online questionnaire asap

    This is all normal and I too had to fill in the online questionnaire after returning my PEC forms. It's all standard so don't worry.

    It's pretty easy and standard and yes it is a 'yes and no' type thing and similar to the form. They may ask you for your doctors details, they never contacted mine. It's just making further checks and more for if you need any specific requirements should you be formally offered the role. They can't decline you for health conditions.

    They should just ask all the questions in the first form and save themselves the trouble ! Lol.
    Thanks Ladynevertells
    Yeah I know, pain, but suppose Manpower need to be shown to be extra vigilant as it's working for the government. Don't worry, you'll be fine. I was expecting a call after I filled it in but I never got one. I was just as honest as possible.
