Literally minutes afterwards. My first attempt to offer my passport failed and I did it again this morning. Pressed submit and as I say the provisional offer came through

I did mine since morning.. still no response. My portal is showing my iD needs to be reviewed

That’s what happened with mine. Then I got a message saying the image wasn’t acceptable and I should re submit- they sent me another link. I did it all again and must have caught a better image of the info they needed. That’s when my offer came thru

Has anyone done the health check and if so did you get an email to say its been completed... I've just done mine and when I clicked finished it went back to the video section.

I provided the references , my driving licence and all my address and work details. They queried my address but that was my fault for leading them to believe I’d only been there 9 months in stead of 19 years. Since then nothing. What video did it go to?

Yeah they do a health check with the reference etc...but then you get an email for fit4jobs and fill a detailed health check, like do you wear glasses, are you taking any medication, mental health questions, surgery, broken bones, back pain etc etc.

Same for me, then the following day I got a phone call from a nurse just to check a few answers I gave. She said on the call she was happy and that she would be advising them I was fit to work. If you don't get a call I would assume your answers are ok.

Did you receive anything via email to say its been completed or when you clicked the finish button did it go back to the video page...I just don't want to think I've completed it and find out that it didn't go through 😞

Nope, no email or any sort of notification, just the video again (and even the button that I assume would have started the questionnaire again). Just closed it at that point and as I mentioned received a call from a nurse the following day.

Hey so am I under the impression you get a call or email if you have a health issue that they need to know more about? I Still haven’t received anything and dont have any health issues. They just sent an email yday to provide an alternative proof of address x

Have you had any emails from uCheck, fit4jobs or from dwp saying what checks they will be doing??
They will do a basic DBS check, the health questionnaire will be assessed and you will be contacted if they need further information they check DWP systems for fraud checks. Dbs certificate came through after 3 days.

Do they still provide a dbs certificate even if you have an enhanced dbs certificate and is already on the update service??

Yes, I have an enhanced DBS with childrens barred list information on the update service but still got a basic DBS through the post. Was quick to come through though at least.
