    They rang me up yesterday to follow up an application i made a month or so ago. I was just wondering if anyone else has worked for them, or in a call centre dealing with a similar problem. Whats it like?

    I work in a call centre but not related to the NHS or health. It's fine, you get the few awkward customers but the majority are fine, I live near you.

    I'm not sure at the minute, i had to ring back and leave a message. I'll let you know when they reply.

    Yeah, i'd imagine it will get busy and its nothing to do with the NHS its a private call centre.

    They're opening helplines in the major cities across the country. The jobs are advertised online but in some cases the description is very cryptic and just refers to the requirement to find people who are available to work from the end of this week for 5 days out of 7. The pay ranges from £5-9/hour.
    Keep an eye out on the usual online jobsites if you can do it.

    Oh ffs.
    I quoted you and said "This!", meaning: I agree, I want to know too, your post is the same as what I would have written, etc...

    It's pretty standard practise on forums. Geddit? :facepalm:
