COVID 19 TRACK & TRACE NHS

The NHS test and trace service:

ensures that anyone who develops symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19) can quickly be tested to find out if they have the virus, and also includes targeted asymptomatic testing of NHS and social care staff and care home residents

helps trace close recent contacts of anyone who tests positive for coronavirus and, if necessary, notifies them that they must self-isolate at home to help stop the spread of the virus

FOR MORE DETAILS FOLLOW THIS LINK;

https://www.gov.uk/guidance/nhs-test-and-trace-how-it-works

Any MAS worker showing any of the coronavirus symptons should inform the NHS and where required to  take a TEST as soon as possible, as you may be expected to leave your assignment for a period of 14 days.  The sooner you do the test if you have symptons, the sooner you can be given the all clear, to go back to work if your illness is not Covid 19.

If it is COVID 19 you MUST NOT go to work for at least 14 days after diagnosis, or during the dates given to you by the NHS. For the purpose of SSP, your quarantine notice will be required to prove your health position and validate any claims for SSP under the current rules.

COVID 19 TESTS

29.04.20 PM updates Source REC

  • Coronavirus tests will be made available to all essential workers in England and members of their households who are showing symptoms of coronavirus, the government has announced. 

    From tomorrow, workers will be able to book a test for themselves or members of their household who are experiencing symptoms – a high temperature or new continuous cough.

    While there is no definite list of workers that are included in the essential worker category, the government has highlighted the following as eligible:
    • NHS and care staff
    • teachers
    • hospital cleaners
    • public servants
    • the emergency services
    • supermarket staff
    • delivery drivers 
    • critical infrastructure staff 
  • MAS staff should go to book the test direct if they meet the relevant criteria.  You will need to enter some contact details and can select a home kit or a testing station visit.  It is best to do this in the morning as the number of available tests each day can get booked up.  You will then be sent a text message for further details from the gov.uk service.

New Worker - New Office role

Hi, I was looking at Reading-forum and I read you were still around and still in the same building you were in years ago! Next to the afterdark. I just wanted to write and say thanks for the summer jobs i had in 1994 and 1995 (i think). I was 18 and working for you was my first job. I loved it on the cart-line in the Bracknell Waitrose warehouse and i even have good memories of working on the bins! Mike and Sue were very good to me and nice people which i suppose is the key to success. I now live in Macau in China but i will always remember MAS and my shift work with a smile on my face. Thanks Alex Croxford, ex Caversham Heights boy.

All the way to China and back someday - Our reach is global!

I'm just messaging to say thanks to Mike and everyone at M.A.S recruitment for finding me a great place to work. This is by far the best agency to work for, I've worked for M.A.S on and off for a few years and never had any problem, always get paid on time the work places are amazing. I will always go back if anything ever happens because I know Mike will find me work. Thanks again, James" MAS Reply: Thanks James - Congratulations on your recent permanent offer from our long standing client of 14 years, we know they will look after you and if we see you again, it will be our pleasure to assist you.

He was polite, professional, nothing was too much trouble and he performed his tasks in an exemplary manner, so much so that the Dealer Principal remarked on how impressed he was with your temporary driver" David M

Main Dealer - South East After Sales Manager

"Hi Mike This is to formalize what I told you on the phone this morning that, after four years of working for you in what was going to be my retirement, this is the moment when I stop. I have other activities on-going in my retirement, and other things I want to do, so I am going to concentrate on those. Please accept my sincere thanks for all the work you have provided me with over these years. It has been a pleasure dealing with you, and the work has been varied and interesting, allowing me to do things, see places and meet new people that I wouldn’t otherwise have done. You have been a pleasure to deal with, and I will miss your friendly voice at the end of the phone. Please thank Sue, also, for the efficient accounts department that she oversees. Not once over these years has the Friday payment been missed and, on the odd occasion where there has been some discrepancy, this has been promptly rectified. My very best wishes to you both, and for the continuing success of MAS. Kind regards Hugh Anscombe" Our congratulations to Hugh on finally deciding to retire and take things easier. At 74 years young, you have outshone and outworked many a younger worker and we wish you all the very best. If you need us anytime or get bored or fancy something new, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Mr Hugh Anscombe 74 years young - 23rd July 2018

Herewith the first issue of the Department of Employment - Employment Agency Licence to MAS Recruitment. The licence process was abolished in 1994. Back in 1989 in order to open an employment agency, which was the term used for Agency and Business (Temp & Perm) you had to supply satisfactory employer references, bankers references and trade references in order to trade in this sector. You were required to implement and follow the Employment Agency Act 1973, although still valid in UK law, there have been many changes within the sector, including a variety of amendments to the Act and many new EU directives and statutory regulations that governs the industry today. How things have changed.
