departing on the 11th, but earliest I can get my second vaccine shot is 25th scheduled through the NHS, is it normal to just go early to one of these drop in places and get it done? would it be possible to get it early?

when did you have your 1st jab? you can sometimes get a 2nd jab 21-28* days after your 1st at a drop-in centre. depends on the drop-in centre. check out https://www.reddit.com/r/GetJabbed/ for info

*moderna is 21 days, pfizer 28 days

Anyone here got a Ring doorbell or an alternative? Had a spate of trouble in my street over the last few weeks with scrotes chancing car doors, front doors etc.

Are Ring worth it or are there better, non subscription ones out there?

I’ve tested a few with my work and i would only look at Ring or Nest. The others either are unreliable or look awful.

We’ve got a Ring 3rd Gen at the moment and it’s great, i just don’t love the looks. The new Nest is much nicer looking but it’s massive.

Video door bells are a bit nankid in my opinion. I would opt for a camera which work in the same way, are cheaper and don’t make your house look terrible. The nest cam or ring stick up cam are both great.

They're totally different products though, one is predominantly a doorbell with video capabilities and the other is a dedicated cctv system.

But yeah hikvision make decent cameras if your going for a cctv set up.

I would recommend the Ring Stick up cam. Easy to install and the battery is great. It may be worth waiting until Black Friday next month - https://en-uk.ring.com/products/stick-up-security-camera-battery

Not really comparing apples with apples. Of course a proper system will be far better, but for the money Ring and and Nest for the money are brilliant.

Has anyone had to have a medical exam and X-ray for a work visa? If someone has, can they recommend a place that does this in London?
