five years ago Benchmarking came in which said prisons could run with a lot less staff, VEDS was born and thousands of highly experienced prison officers were paid off handsomely to leave early.
This gave HMP the prisons with a lot less staff that they wanted and since then? Well since then we have RECORD NUMBERS of brand new prison officers with 0 experience whatever. Far better than the hugely experienced prison officers who were paid handsomely to leave.

Hi, just wondering if there's anyone on here who did their RAD in Manchester 4/5/17.
Would be nice to hear how you're getting on.
I'm the little one that made the reference about it being star wars day and hopefully May the 4th be with us (corny, I know!) πŸ˜‚

I got the OH medical email as soon I got home on the day of my RAD, then got an email to say I'd passed the following day. I thought brilliant it's all happening quickly! Just waiting now to hear what next. Every time my phone goes off I'm thinking this could be it.
Looking at the forum and realistically I could be waiting for months to hear anything even though my chosen establishment is advertising and has a closing date at the end of the month.
The letter given to me at the RAD said you have to give the admin up to 8weeks to receive your results and pass it on to your prison.
Yes I talk a lot!!! How are you getting on? I hope you're further down the line.
