Checked in to the clinic today for the three night study, and checked out again this evening.
Turned out one of the staff tested positive for Covaids.
The head doctors sat us down and explained to us that one of the team tested positive this afternoon, and that whilst we didn't come into contact with that particular staff member, we did come into contact with staff members who had been in contact with the staff member who tested positive for Covaids.
We're guaranteed the position again in a few weeks, or however long shit takes, plus we'll probably get some compensation for our trouble (head doc said he's gunna do his best to make sure it's as generous as he can get for us).
All very exciting stuff.
Something I noticed was just how unbothered I was by the study being pulled. Sometimes things just happen that are out of your control and there's simply nothing you can do about it, you just roll with it. Of the 4 lads in our room, 2 of them were huffing and puffing about it when the docs left us, and the other 2 of us weren't. Twats.
You can't win if you don't play
