    • Just to give another view of the NHS and GPs - two GPs probably saved my life last year.   I'd been extremely ill, no appetite, significant weight loss, not taking enough fluids.  Wife took me to A&E.  Terrible experience.  After four hours told my wife to take me home.  She said "told you this was a mistake.  I'll get you an emergency GP appointment tomorrow".  Saw a GP Registrar (essentially a trainee GP) following afternoon.  She was very concerned and asked a colleague for a second opinion.  Second GP was horrified as soon as she saw me, and said "You ought to be in hospital".  She told the trainee to arrange to have me admitted to hospital and just over two hours later (after my wife had driven me there) I was in bed on a medical assessment ward.  Stayed in hospital for a week and was only discharged because they needed the bed.   I was going to complain about my A&E experience (I think the triage nurse must have screwed up my triage assessment) but a week after I was discharged, I had to take my wife to A&E as her optician thought she might have a detached retina.  It was about 5:30pm on a Saturday and the place was full of injured footballers and rugby players.  It was much busier than it had been on the Monday afternoon I'd been there, but my wife saw a doctor in 20 mins and we were out in 40 mins.  I decided that sometimes you're just unlucky...

    • I keep an eye on the NHS board because I'm a former NHS manager.  I saw this thread started years ago and thought I'd have look.   I'm sure it's purely coincidental, but when I got to #61, it reminded me of a different poster on a different thread from last year.  They aren't identical, but the way things are expressed are remarkably similar.  (eg 20 min wait - ask receptionist - Drs are very busy - wait another 20 min - ask again - receptionist checks computer - says Dr has refused to see you because of complaint 2 years ago - transferred to another GP who expresses "shock" at other Dr's behaviour - vague and confusing references to a "justified" complaint.   Maybe it's just me, but they seem remarkably similar, although the other thread is missing a 2014, 2016, 2017 backstory.     layla_83   As others have already said, there seems little point in complaining now about issues that stem from things that happened in 2014 (and 2016?).  If you wanted to complain to "put the system right", you should have done that six years ago.  Even if the original GP is still about, they won't remember any of it, so there will be absolutely no opportunity for them to learn any lessons from it.  And the fact that the original GP did not want to see you (or rather your mother) because you (she) had made a complaint against them two years ago most certainly does not mean that the GP remembers anything from 2014, it just means that you (or your mother) are flagged up on their system as a "complainer".  As I asked a year ago, why would anyone be unhappy because a GP they had previously complained about refused to see them?  You should be relieved!!!  You say the GP should not take the complaint personally, but if I were a GP I would not want to treat anyone who has made a complaint against me.  (And if you are connected to that other thread, you should have complained to your local CCG or the GMC by now).   You were going to send a letter of complaint to the practice in 2017, so why only now complain about their response?  Did it take them nearly three years to reply?

I'm certainly in need of something a little stronger than a cuppa at the mo! :-)


Luckily for us we live in modern times, the draft judgment will be sent out via email within 2 weeks and the hearing to formally hand down judgment is set for 27th July. So it's not all up in the air thankfully :-D


It looks like judgement will be formally handed down tomorrow. Understandably WBDFS can't tell us anything about the draft she has received by email.


All the best for tomorrow WBDFS.

Thank you for your patience, I appreciate your understanding that there have been certain things I am unable to speak about publicly.

As it goes, there are still things I am unable to say but I will do what I can to try to explain what has happened.


There was a draft judgment but I am entirely unable to say anything about that at all, those there them are the rules I'm afraid :|

Judgment was due to be formally handed down today but it hasn't been. Instead I made an application for a stay of proceedings pending the decision of the Supreme Court in the Harrison case. My application was granted this morning and proceedings are now held until next year when the Supreme Court makes its findings on the Unfair Relationships provisions.


I know this is not what you all may have been expecting or hoping but please trust me on this one, it was the right thing to do.

Yes it would have been great to have seen an end to this drama but, in reality it was just not prudent to continue when the rules on Unfair Relationships are all up in the air with no real authority to bind them. There is a very recent Waksman judgment which explains it all very clearly, here's a LINK to it.


If I may be so bold to offer the benefit of my experience, I would recommend everybody to take the same action if they already have an ongoing case or are faced with one.


In my case the current situation is that there will be further directions given following the Supreme Court decision expected next year. As it stands we are in no different a position than we were before this remit, the original judgment is still set aside and there is no judgment yet on the remit. It all hinges now on what the Supreme Court decides amounts to an Unfair Relationship and whether the facts of my case fall within that ambit.


Sorry I can't give you all an ending to this yet....:-(

“First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win.” - Ghandi

"You must have the resources to deal with the judicial intervention - the confidence not to be overawed, the resilience to respond, the tenacity to challenge, the tact to mollify, the authority to inform and persuade."


Strength does not come from winning. Your struggles develop your strengths. When you go through hardships and decide not to surrender, that is strength.

I've just read the whole thread bit by bit over days. I see that I posted in this thread over a year ago!


Can I just say congratulations for sticking your ground. Too many times the average person is run roughshod over by companies, and I'm pleased to see you on what seems to be the winning straight. (Depending on Supreme Court judgements).


I'm not sure I could have kept up the fight like you did over years.
