I’d had my OH assist email before I’d even left Newbold, I did pass my Rad, but I doubt they would have reviewed my role plays before the OH assist request had been raised.

OH assist are a separate company to HMPPS and will have absolutely no idea whether you have passed or failed your RAD if they have sent you the form on the same day as your RAD, it is applied for by someone at HMPPS as stated on the email that you receive, they may or may not know you have passed prior to th application.
It’s too bad that stupidity isn’t painful. Ignorance is one thing, but our society thrives increasingly on stupidity

Start of vetting to the call 17 weeks 2 days.

This is probably a stupid question, I'm trying to log into my OH thing (which iv just got at the end of week 12!!!) and I'm getting authentication failure, it says use your existing password, am I right in thinking that it's the password I use for the steria log in or have I missed something somewhere??

Oh, I haven't got that. Mine says username and then my email address and then below it it says password and says use your existing password which I don't have an existing OH password so thought maybe it's connected to the steria thing but that doesn't actually make sense if it was that because I didn't think the 2 were connected. Iv tried the reference number in the email and that doesn't work either

Yes mine were in a email all random symbols and numbers for it. This is contact number for their helpline
08444990456 but they are closed for a week. Mine is working now. Does anyone know what documentation they are wanting me to provide for vaccinations. I know what ones I've had but don't have documents to say

I've just added all the documentation for proof of my vaccinations but when I pressed submit it just went back to the first page it didn't say it was all complete or anything like that? When I tried to log in again it said this account has been deactivated. Does that mean it's all gone through ok or not?
