Shielding and work advice
Good afternnon ,
I do hope everyone is well, I am just looking for a little advice, I am currently on the shielding list in Scotland.
My question is I have been offered a new job and I am really struggling financially, but am thinking regarding risk of being seriously ill if I take this post due to covid.
I really dont want to refuse a job because I was Paid off from my last post last March due to this and was not put on furlough and had to claim benefits, and jobs are difficult at the best of times to get hold of .
I am barely scraping by on benefits and can't rely on benefits because they can be stopped at any time .
I would be very grateful to hear if anyone is having the same issues.
I have psoriatic arthritis and have not had the vaccine yet, but I recieved a letter today from the nhs telling me to continue to shield regardless if have had the vaccine or not.
All the best
