  1. Hi all i apologise in advance if this is long, I bought a Mattress off amazon costing almost £500. It was sold by a company and delivery was fulfilled by amazon via prime. I was working at the time of delivery but my 70 year old dad agreed to pop in and wait for it for me. When it was delivered they knocked on the door and the driver told my dad he had to get the matress off the van himself...which he did. (i really wish i was there grr) i get home from work and find a really cheap rubbish mattress that is not even rolled and is taking up alot of space in my front room. I
  2. Its work being completed under the Welsh Housing Quality Standard scheme. Most council houses are having the work done. The works include full rewiring, new central heating system, and new bathroom and kitchen. Both the council and the company they contracted were made fully aware of all medical issues before works began.
  3. Hi all i hope im posting in the correct place. just wanted to share and get advice. My parents live in a council house and have been having work done by a company called keepmoat. The work is now sort of completed(according to them). My mom has copd and is on oxygen and also has fibromyalgia and my dad has parkinsons and dementia. The issue is they were left for 24 days without shower and kitchen facilities and when they finally installed shower they didnt seal it so they have a leak going down into kitchen which has been ongoing for 6 weeks. They have brok
  4. Hi everyone i placed an order for a phone with simply electronics on 23/4 this was a birthday present for my mother. They stated it would be dispatched within 24-48 hours. 2nd may i emailed them and asked why my order had not been dispatched yet. They replied it would be dispatched within 48- 72 hours. I then requested to cancel my order because i got fed up with waiting and because it would not arrive in time for mams birthday. i recieved a reply offering me a free memory card if i continued with my order or if i still wanted to cancel email them and c
  5. hi everyone so i finished work on 17th September and have contacted my employer several times requesting my p45, final payslip and monies owed and they kept telling me they dont have my p45 so i rang their accountant today and the lady on the phone stated that my ex employer has had my p45 since the 10 October. So obviously my employer has been withholding this. The accountant said they would send me a duplicate but im still unhappy about the fact that my ex employer had had this since the 10th October. Can anyone give me some advice about this please.
  6. It would be very easy for them to use another carer. But they seem reluctant to do this.
  7. i have worked for a private care company for 5 and 1/2 years. i care for people with learning disabilities and challenging behaviour. Part of job is to take the residents on days out , shopping etc. i have said from the start of my employment that i am more than willing to assist residents with any activities other than swimming. I have a very bad phobia of water. my manager is now trying to force me to take a resident swimming tomorrow even though i have previously stated i cannot do this. i cant swim and have a very bad phobia of water so surely this is p
  8. Hi everyone, i had a loan with cfo some time ago and they took full payment for this loan aswell as taking additional money from my account forcing me to change banks. I have proof that they have had payment from me but im still receiving calls and texts. so today i received a text saying the following. "as you have failed to arrange a payment with CFO, all your numbers have been uploaded to be called continuously" Are they allowed to do this. I would class this as intimidation.
  9. just had a phone call of a colleague telling me that the deputy manager has spoke to her and said that she does not believe that i went to hospital and does not believe that i have pulled a ligament.I have no issue with this as i can easily produce a doctors certificate as proof but surely she shouldn't even be discussing me with another colleague.
  10. it has been logged in accident book. i have been employed there for over 5 years. if any violence occurs to staff there is meant to be a meeting afterwards between the staff member and the management to discuss what happened and if you feel you need to press charges etc. i was offered no medical attention at all from the management. i completed relevant documentation e.g. incident reports, behavioural monitoring forms and a copy of these have also been sent to cssiw.
  11. yep i can give them a doctors note to fully back me up.
  12. I work as a carer for a private care home for people with learning difficulties and challenging behaviour. On Saturday whilst in work i was attacked by a patient/service user i was kicked in the knee full force causing my knee to buckle and causing me to fall to the floor. I had soem pain in my knee but whe i woke up sunday morning the pain was intense so took myself off the local hospital where i was informed that i have a pulled ligament and im being referred to physiotherapy. so i have first aid training tomorrow so i informed work yesterday that i would be unable to attend due to the level
  13. no employer did not arrange for the weight clinic and no not attended during work time. my gp referred me. and no no warnings
  14. ok so i have been employed for 3 years in a private care home. i had some time off sick about 5 months ago due to a back complaint . i saw an occupational health doctor and was told i was fit for work. so once i returned to work i was told that if i had any more time off sick from work it would be instant dismissal. my manager commented to me that unless im dying i should turn up for no matter how ill i am. i questioned this as works policy with stomach bugs clearly stated 48 you cannot enter the premises for 48 hours. My manager said that if i had sickness and diarrhoea to simply stick a cork
