  1. There have been cases in Norwich which have been dealt with locally. It’s all a bit of a mish mash. Giving the full data to LA’s is a big step forward but it still depends on local resources being sufficient, which in most places they won’t be. The Guardian article suggested some of the national resource would be made available, which would be essential in most areas.
  2. I’m tier 2 so employed by NHS and payed per shift. Tier 3 I believe are employed by private contractors, the interview Herman posted was tier 3 I suspect.Essentially cases will get escalated depending on all sorts of factors, eg have there been contacts in a care setting. As cases become more complex they are escalated from tier 3 up to 2 and from 2 to 1. When you log on there may be a case waiting there for you to follow up, the full interview can take up to an hour, if the person wants you to ring back at a later time you could follow that up but if it’s after your shift has finished it will be reallocated. The script you follow and the guidance is updated very regularly and the training materials are pretty good now.
  3. It’s a national system so in theory could be allocated cases from anywhere in England, in addition to local referrals.
  4. https://www.theguardian.com/society/2020/aug/06/councils-in-england-to-be-offered-near-real-time-data-on-covid-cases Taken far too long to resolve this.
  5. Visited 3 pubs to ensure he was blind drunk.
  6. There have been hardly any shifts available for a while, now some have come along but no referrals. It may be that they freed up more resources than they actually needed, I don’t know, but it’s still frustrating.
  7. https://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/home-news/coronavirus-sunderland-pub-crawl-test-covid-silksworth-a9654561.html?utm_source=taboola&utm_medium=Feed Add in a few clowns like this guy.
  8. Yet I had a four hour T and T trace shift today and not one case. It’s frustrating to say the least.
  9. Absolutely agree, I fear North Norfolk is going to see a rise in infections over the next two or three weeks.
  10. https://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/home-news/preston-coronavirus-covid-19-surge-northern-lockdown-a9656876.html Looks like Preston is going to be next!
  11. Yep there does need to be justification when people are having their liberty denied. For what its worth just completed a four hour T and T shift and not given a single case!
  12. The long term trends are important but with a weekly jump as seen the shift is regarded as significant. The rate of spread of infection can be so fast it would be foolish not to react.
  13. Are these the same people who said it was only flu?
