Has anyone else received a letter about taking part in the above. We have and this morning i was contacted by them to register that we are willing to take swabs and provide information required. It will be about three weeks till we hear again as they have been inundated with responses. There is a bonus too taking part, 50.00 for the first visit and 25 there after until they have completed. Apparently you can drop out at any time and if you go on to the end the total sum you will be paid is 425 approx.

Pressed the wrong button meant to press preview.

I meant to say i would be willing anyway without the payments and i am concerned about where the money is coming from especially as they are 'inundated'!!!!!

Yes we had the same. Apparently we were chosen at random. I phoned back weeks ago and was told someone would be in touch in the next few days, so far nothing, , strangely it was on my to do List today.

My daughter and family were selected and had their first tests done last Saturday.

I got the letter today, but I’m not going to do it. It’s entirely voluntary.

My son has been doing it for ages, or at least it seems like ages.

I'd be happy to do it for nothing. I'm surprised at them paying at all.
