Hi ya

What work has been carried out

You may have a duff thermostat, do you have access to a scan gauge or diagnostic tool that can read the coolant temp.
When your filling the system make shore to run the heating at half fan and full heat. This will bleed this part of the system.
You may need to pop out the thermostat and check it, sometimes they take a while for the thermostat to open.

Hope this helps

Yes sounds like thermostat to me or maybe a blockage in the rad. As soon as the engine reaches operating temperature the thermostat opens & the top hose should start getting hot
