  1. I do most of my Council stuff online via their web portal, also most of my GP stuff via (use to be EMS) https://www.patientaccess.com and book my next hospital app via their online bookings system so bonza! PIP appeals https://www.gov.uk/government/news/new-online-service-launched-for-pip-appeals Check area availability as it doesn't cover all areas atm MoJ is also trying and failing atm to launch a PIP appeal via video link service. I've been having a few barnys with NHS services over disability accessibility/adaptation well lack of it. So think this is a good thing? ESA appeals on line https://www.gov.uk/appeal-benefit-decision/submit-appeal England and Wales only Upload your fit note https://www.gov.uk/send-fit-note I think one complaint for all is that is doesn't send you a copy of your submission but you should be copy n pasting to a word doc (or what ever you use) for your own records anyway. Imagine if the fully online Universal Credit service could do that? Well apparently it might do in 2020 (only 6/7/8 who knows years after launch) but you might at present be able to ask your work coach for a 'to do' whereby they can enable a one off upload function on your journal.
  2. Older home-owners are being given more borrowing options, as a building society launches a new range of retirement interest-only mortgages. Leeds Building Society said it is entering the market, with the new deals initially being made available through brokers. Interest-only mortgages allow people to make regular interest payments on a loan, without paying off the loan itself – but the capital must be eventually paid off. Leeds’ new mortgages are being offered to borrowers aged 55 to 80. https://uk.yahoo.com/finance/news/interest-only-mortgages-lasting-retirement-230100829.html

  8. The rail watchdog is launching an investigation into “rip off” rail machines after a Telegraph investigation revealed that passengers are routinely being denied the cheapest fares. Joanna Whittington, chief executive of the Office of Rail and Road, said that research suggests one in 20*passengers were being sold rail tickets by machines that are too expensive. This means the millions of rail passengers could be potentially be paying the wrong*train*fares for journeys. An investigation by the Telegraph in 2014 found that customers were forced to pay double the required fare*as a result of machines promoting the most expensive tickets and “burying” the cheapest options.

  11. Thousands of people, including the descendants of First World War veterans, are to be given a chance to be part of the centenary commemorations of one of the bloodiest battles of the conflict. A ballot has opened for members of the public who want to join the official Battle of the Somme commemoration next year. http://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/home-news/world-war-i-ballot-launched-for-battle-of-the-somme-centenary-commemoration-a6669391.html https://www.seetickets.com/somme2016
  12. A service allowing motorists in England and Wales charged with summary motoring offences to enter a plea online is being launched by the government. People charged with a minor motoring offence such as speeding or not having insurance will be able to enter a plea 24-hours-a-day via a secure website. The gradual roll-out of the "Make A Plea" scheme from March follows a successful pilot in Greater Manchester. The government says it saves time and money for the criminal justice system. Last year saw 4.5m minor motoring offences processed through the courts. The government is also considering whether the scheme could be used for other low-level offences. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-31653760 Warning: Expect an influx of copy-cat sites from the same bottom-feeders who rip off the unsuspecting by charging for something you can do for free. Here's the official government website: https://www.makeaplea.justice.gov.uk/
  13. Google Chrome 64-bit Beta has just been launched for Windows if anyones interested. Announced just hours ago via an official blog post on the Google Chrome releases blog, the 64-bit beta variant of Google’s browser is supposed to bring a lot of performance enhancing features to the table for regular as well as power users (more stability, less frequent crashes, better tab process memory allocation etc.). In general, this should essentially translate into an overall smoother browsing experience for users with 64-bit machines. But perhaps the biggest advantage is the fact that with this beta release, Google Chrome can now use more than 4 GB of RAM (32 bit applications can’t address more than 4 GB of system memory). Visit this link to learn more etc.
  14. A NEW mental health service for veterans and reserves has been launched in East Yorkshire. Specialist nurses in the region are helping military veterans get help for a range of conditions, including depression, whether they are related to combat or not. The Veterans Outreach Service found many ex-military workers struggled to talk about mental health problems or found it difficult to approach their own GP. Now, Humber NHS Foundation Trust is providing specialist nurses to cover the region, chat to veterans and work with them to get the help they need. http://www.thisishullandeastriding.co.uk/Service-brings-mental-health-care-barracks/story-18088468-detail/story.html
  15. Legal repossession specialist Moore Blatch had launched a website to make it easier for landlords to deal with rogue tenants.

  16. Six in ten people (59%) say they would be more likely to switch banks if they could keep their bank account number. According to a new survey from Which?, three-quarters (76%) of those questioned believe that this would make switching accounts easier because there would be no need to change existing direct debits and standing orders. More than half (55%) of those surveyed have never switched their current account, so both Which? and Andrea Leadsom MP have this week hosted a joint event at the House of Commons to encourage banks to introduce portable accounts. Representatives from Lloyds, RBS, Barclays, HSBC, Metro Bank and Virgin Money attended, along with members of the Treasury Select Committee and the British Bankers’ Association. Which? argues that portable account numbers would increase competition on the High Street, forcing banks to compete for customers and incentivising better products and service. They could also produce other benefits by creating changes to the agency clearing service that would make it easier for smaller banks to set up business. In addition, portable account numbers could reduce the likelihood of taxpayers having to bail out the banks again because the regulator could shut down a failing bank and transfer personal and business accounts to a more stable rival.
