You are right, protective isolation.

I am praying seriously. I feel the pain. We have bin apart for years.

From information available on google, it is a charity and not an NHS hospital although they work with the NHS. You need to communicate better with your spouse so you will stop suspecting each other. Why don't you focus on your job in Nigeria and plan to visit her and vice versa pending when the visa issue is resolved?

I am praying seriously. We have been apart for years. And traveling to visit vice versa cost us alot

Should we tell him that due to his monitoring spirit approach, constantly policing her...... Her stay in the United Kingdom, is a break from his default position(which she is silently enjoying) ........... grin

It does cost a lot. At the moment, you come across as desperate to move to the UK and that may, in my opinion, make her feel you are only interested in the move and not necessarily in her. She may well think you settle, you may start looking elsewhere. Try to make a decent living for yourself in Nigeria and even she will not hesitate to move back to be with you. It's obvious that she is struggling in the UK.

I am not desperate to be in UK but desperate to be with my wife to start babies. family. We are not getting younger
Re: Living In The Uk/life As A UK Immigrant by promisechild(m): 11:03am On Mar 31
Hello Lexusgs430 I can see you are a medical practitioner I will need your advise on the following

I had a degree In BA Philosophy{Nigeria}
MSc Psychology {UK}

I want to enroll for MSc in Mental health Nursing or Adult Nursing which will give me the privilege to be a registered Nurse in the Uk.

The MSc program accept any discipline irrespective of your background but you must be able to demonstrate a prior working experience in the healthcare sector by having at least 500hours of experiences being paid or volunteering. I have been a support worker in a mental health facility in Uk and I think the experiences won’t be a problem for me. The bone of contention is hope there won’t be a discrimination against me whist looking for job after graduation since my BSc degree is not in Nursing but in Philosophy? Any suggestions?

Does your wife know you're not getting any younger?

Let's start asking the difficult questions - :
- Number one....

Who is funding this application?
In what percentage terms?

Prioritisation. Start family, then move to the UK later or they could wait knowing they are not getting younger.

I would rather prefer not to get infected, if adequate PPE's are provided.........

Does your employer provide you, the best tools to practice effectively and safely?

Yup. So the fight is with the govt, for not providing you with what you need, as that’s their responsibility. But saying you won’t treat patients because you’ve not be protected by a failed govt, is failing your patients who you promised to protect and swore you were passionate about, when you became a medic.

Anyway, I’m not talking about you per say. When I was in the hospital, I saw how well equipped the workers were- their eyes were even protected. Still nurses turned down the jobs and left a poor diabetic amputee to pee and shit on herself because the nurse didn’t want to work with a covid patient. Who’s worse between that nurse and Boris?

Hello house trust u guys are keeping safe? Please I need y advice I am confused. I and my wife remarried this year in Nigeria, she left to UK and promised applying for me when she gets bk, just for her to call me and said that the hospital she works is not allowing agency, that government said that agency is cheating on govt and not paying their taxes. So I asked her what she wants to do, she said she wants to start full permanent job by March and I have to wait for six-months for her to fill my papers. I said ok. Just for me to ask her yesterday, she told me that she is not working, staying at home bc of the covid. I was confused. She said some of her colleagues are affected with the virus, so I don't know if she is scared to go to work or because of her sugar problem. I am confused. How can she bring me to UK if she is not working. Kindly advise me. Thank you.

I’m concerned at how you’re more worried about yourself coming here than how she’s surviving being a contractor and not even working at the moment (meaning she’s not getting paid). Hahahahaha worse still, she’s got a sugar problem, shouldn’t you be happy that she’s not even working?

Anyway, Her plan of being a perm to bring you here is the best option for you. You just have to wait for things to die down, get a perm job and wait 6 months. Her reason for not wanting to be a contractor is valid, although the govt have changed their mind on contractors for now, however the fact that she won’t earn this month will affect your application anyway.

So wait on your wise wife.

In addition to what soknown said , it appears ur wife has a medical condition that makes her high risk in this covid era.
I have colleagues that been asked to shield at home for next three month so they don't catch anything.
Relax ur mind , be supportive and pray this drama ends soon.

Thanks so much for saying this. I was quite shocked at his nonchalant comment about her health; Man that’s supposed to be going mad and begging wifey to protect herself!

I support everything Dusty has said to you. You don’t sound desperate to be with your wife, you sound desperate to move. Someone that loves his wife would be worried about her health, but you haven’t shown concern towards her health..

Anyway, that’s your marriage. Pls Ignore me. I don’t know why someone else’s marriage is annoying me cheesy

My hippocratic oath, did not tell me to fight an AK47 war, with a bread knife..... Or did it?

My employer owes me a duty of care, ensuring that i am adequately protected, while discharging my duties......

The government failed massively in protecting medical practitioners. That tissue paper they call face masks, some trust managers would tell you, you can use one tissue mask for a duration of 4 hours 30 minutes...... Or don't overuse PPE, considering cost vs life.....

It took over 30,000 of us, to sign and send a letter to the PM & Minister of health, before they eventually agreed to ramp up on purchasing of proper PPE's purchasing and agreeing to testing frontline practitioners........

I pity the nurses on the wards, they are looking after suspected COVID19 patients and active COVID19 patients, with surgical gloves + tissue masks + very thin plastic aprons.......

Madam, pls don't get me started..... I don't like typing plenty............

I am a Nigerian studying Psychology in the Uk but will be through in the summer! Currently I work as a support worker in a mental health facility. Though I wasn’t employed directly by the facility but by an agency who usually post me to any available shift in various mental homes.

You need to support her as much as you can because it’s not easy for her now with no job and no income probably. I know that the distance thing is killing but you will make it even worse by putting pressure on her.

This CoronaVirus is not only taking lives, it’s testing marriages and breaking some

3 - Want to study Mental Health or Adult Nursing
4 - Discrimination of jobs after completion, due to initial discipline
5 - Then you later added Tier 2 sponsorship

Lol. I knew there was a prejudice to your assertion. Today alone I have had 10 patients test positive. Even the scrubs I went to hustle to wear I was told off that I’m wasting scrubs. I’m supposed to see and treat CoVid patients in my regular clothes and wear them home. With only gloves and a plastic bin apron and a surgical mask that is not protective. It’s like sending a soldier with a bright orange jumpsuit to a war instead of camouflage wear because they knew the signed up to die. In that case just save them the betrayal and shoot them yourself. Maybe you should read the Hippocratic oath before you use it in an argument

Oh... my friend worked on a COVID ward over the weekend with tissue mask and waterproof apron. Apparently, that’s what the TRUST provides. She went to do agency there. God knows I would turn back and go home.
