Sorry if this is in the wrong forum but I was wondering if anyone had any experience of the shiite I just heard. I have applied to become a Special Constable in my local Constabulary and was accepted, just needing my medical forms to be handed in. Went to the Doctors today to get it signed off and they said call back tomorrow (no dramas thinks I). Just got a call saying they will sort it for me but there will be a fee (again, no dramas, expected to have to pay a charge). BEST PART OF A Â£100!!! Now if I was getting paid to do the job then I would see it as a necessary evil but to have to actually pay through the nose to police my local area is a bit naughty, Isnt it? Question is, am I getting mugged off by the NHS or is this the usual treatment life long hard working tax payers get for wanting to help out the local area? RANT OVER!!
