Hi everyone! I’m new here, I came originally from the Philippines and moved to the US in 2010 but since my husband got a job offer here in the UK , we moved here last year August 2016. I had a latent TB history and diligently finished the full 6 months treatment medication when I was on the US immigration process in the Philippines. I applied as a health care assistant at Frimley health foundation trust in Wexham Park Hospital on 1st of April 2017. Luckily, I got a conditional offer. In April 25, I went to the occupational health office and they knew my history and I gave them all my health records from the US. They asked me to have an x-ray for their record and I did. I called them on May 5 and asked how’s my status on my clearance and the lady says that she can’t answer because she wasn’t allowed to discuss it .She told me that I have to wait for the nurse to call me about my status but nobody calls me. My questions are : Are the people working in these facilities educated well enough about TB? Are they not going to hire me because of my TB history? What are the grounds that the occupational health centre would fail the applicant? I’m so worried, I don’t know what to do , I cant even sleep thinking too much about it. Any comments or suggestions will be very appreciated. Thank you very much.
