The NHS is ramping up pressure on its workforce to undergo continual testing and take the vaccine. The same can be said of Care Homes and other workplaces.
Employees will be placed under increasing and almost intolerable pressure to submit and conform to strong 'recommendations'.
Many NHS staff are of the view that governments across the world are 'gaslighting' their populations (i.e. brainwashing the healthy into believing they are sick) for political purposes that have nothing to do with our collective good health. They want to resist the advancing tyranny.
This post suggests one way of doing so, by demanding 'proof of claim' from employers and government.
A template letter/demand/petition is presented below (and below that the PHE reply to an FOI request referred to).
Please read and use or adapt as you please. It is recommended that colleagues work together to protect their basic inalienable human rights. Like-minded staff might present something like the following to their superiors to "put their minds at rest"? If superiors fail to produce 'proof of claim' (and they certainly will fail) then employees are fully within their rights to refuse to comply with recommendations.
Remember that knowing this with certainty is half the battle. Most injustices are suffered because people abandon rights and comply with authority under pressure from that 'authority'. Ultimately we stand under the protection of the Law of our Divine Creator. AND THE LEGAL SYSTEM RECOGNISES THIS. If we do no harm we are entitled to live in freedom and free from any who would claim authority over us. We can enter into contractual agreements that define our responsibilities to employers but we are not subject to claims without evidence, extraneous to that contract, asserted by those employers.
A recent (April 2021) circular to NHS staff:
As you may have seen in the news, NHS Test and Trace is currently providing additional COVID-19 ‘surge’ testing in the London Boroughs of Lambeth, Wandsworth and in parts of Southwark and Barnet. This surge testing is in response to a number of cases of the variant first identified in South Africa having been identified locally.
Everybody aged 11 years and over who lives in, works in, or travels through these boroughs is being strongly encouraged to take a COVID-19 PCR test by the end of next week, whether they are showing symptoms or not.
As such, because many of our hospital and community services are based in Lambeth, and because many of our staff travel between our sites, all staff who spend any time working on either the Guy’s or St Thomas’ sites, including nearby office buildings, or in our community services, are asked to take a one-off PCR test as soon as possible.
Please note, if you have received a positive COVID-19 PCR test result in the last 90 days, you do not need to complete another test.
Collecting your test kit
To make this as easy as possible for you, we will be making self-testing kits available on-site every day from Monday to Saturday next week.
You can collect a test kit from, and return your completed tests to, the following locations:
· Where: Atrium 1 at Guy’s Hospital, or Central Hall at St Thomas’ Hospital
· When: Monday (12 noon-8pm), or Tuesday to Saturday (8am-8pm)
So that we can maintain social distancing at the collection points, I encourage you to coordinate your efforts so that one person collects testing kits for everyone in your team, where possible.
In addition, we will be arranging local delivery and collection of kits to and from our community sites and will share the details of these arrangements as soon as we can.
If you work in our community services or live in Lambeth or Wandsworth, please collect a test kit from the most convenient location for you.
Taking the test and returning your swab
I strongly recommend that you read the accompanying instructions fully before attempting to take the throat and nose swab test. Once you have taken the test, please return your swab as soon as possible.
If you decide to collect a test kit from one of our Trust locations, please return your swabs to the same location from which you collected the test kit. Please do not return the swab by post. The samples will be collected in bulk and taken to an external lab for analysis.
As part of the test you will be asked to enter some personal details online, so that the testing team can inform you of your result. You can expect to receive your result within 48 hours. Importantly, you do not have to isolate between the time of your test and the time you get your result.
If your result is positive, you should inform your manager and our Occupational Health team immediately, as outlined in the existing guidance.
Existing staff testing
For those of you carrying out regular lateral flow testing as part of our staff testing programme, you will still need to take a PCR test, as lateral flow tests do not distinguish between different variants of COVID-19.
However, if you are one of the small number of people already undertaking weekly PCR tests as part of your role, you do not need to take an extra test.
I encourage you all to support this public safety exercise and protect yourselves, your patients and your loved ones by taking a PCR test.
Please also remember to remain vigilant by maintaining social distancing and, wearing the correct personal protective equipment at all times, and do get your COVID-19 vaccine if you have not already done so.
Thank you for your ongoing support.
