    • Can you ask your GP to get a second opinion on the NHS?  (I ought to know because I'm a retired NHS manager, but worked in mental health where x-rays didn't really feature very much(!).)   Your GP may be reluctant for various reasons but you've got nothing to lose by asking.  Might be difficult if there's only one consultant in that specialty locally.   If that is a non-starter, you could ask your GP for a private referral if any of the relevant specialists run private clinics.  Your son'll get seen quicker and an initial private consultation shouldn't cost more than about a couple of hundred quid.  Then take it from there.   (Emphasise to your GP what your real concerns are and why you have them - even if it's just "I looked it up on the internet and it looks like this which can lead to serious complications.  What do you think?  I'm really worried...")   EDIT:  Just looked on my local NHS Clinical Commissioning Group website and searched for "second opinion" but nothing comes up...  I thought you were entitled to one - you'll have to ask your GP.  Or look on your own CCG site.  Oh - despite being a NHS manager I have paid to see a consultant privately.  £150 well spent - if you can afford it... which I appreciate not everyone can.
    • dont think they are even allowed to offer settlement by instalments, they are not creditors.   read the letter carefully and understand what it doesn't actually say....like the word WILL anywhere.   they,  a DCA, can't recommend anything and their client most certainly wouldn't have disclosed anything to a powerless DCA about what their solicitors might or might not have said to them. and ofcourse a solicitor is in no position whatsoever to suggest to their client they get back to the DCA and tell the DCA to tell you their client will accept instalments!   the letter is a load of ole BS that is concocted by the dca without any input or knowledge of their client nor their clients solicitor...   dx      
    • The paediatric orthopaedic consultant at the fracture clinic told us today that he believes it is just a sprain behind the knee. I'm concerned my GP will say something along the lines of, 'you have seen a consultant, he says it will heal in 2 to 3 weeks, you don't know more than him!', or something like that. It's just that I believe I can clearly see a fracture. And as there was no fall or hard knock, only a very tightly streched knee bending at an angle behind, with a load. I figured that the temdon must have pulled some bone up. And thats the injury I found online. I totally take on board what you are saying. You are correct. I guess I'll see what my GP says tomorrow, hopefully she allows me to email the images, if she doesent have access to them already. Thanks again

    • Make a appointment ASAP to see child GP and let them sort it out and not Dr Google.   You may need to see a paediatric orthopaedic consultant for advice, a GP can refer the child if necessary.

    • Hi,  
      I was in Sainsbury’s today and did scan and shop.
      I arrived in after a busy day at work and immediately got distracted by the clothes.
       
      I put a few things in my trolley and then did a shop.
      I paid and was about to get into my car when the security guard stopped me and asked me to come back in.
       
      I did and they took me upstairs.
      I was mortified and said I forgot to scan the clothes and a conditioner, 5 items.
      I know its unacceptable but I was distracted and Initially hadn’t really planned to use scan and shop.
       
      No excuse.
      I offered to pay for the goods but the manager said it was too late.
      He looked at the CCTV and because I didn’t try to scan the items he was phoning the police.
       
      The cost of the items was about £40.
      I was crying at this point and told them I was a nurse, just coming from work and I could get struck off.
       
      They rang the police anyway and they came and issued me with a community resolution notice, which goes off my record in a year.
      I feel terrible. I have to declare this to my employer and NMC.
       
      They kept me in a room on my own with 4 staff and have banned me from all stores.
      The police said if I didn’t do the community order I would go to court and they would refer me to the PPS.
       
      I’m so stressed,
      can u appeal this or should I just accept it?
       
      Thanks for reading

I am now the prowd owner of 4 invoices from OPC, offering me the treat of paying £50 now or £100 later think I will use it to line the budge cage. In fact I could be recieving reams and reams of cage paper. Thanks OPC for saving me some money.

 

The parking scheme was introduced on my road, I was not asked about it, its not in my lease

So they are enforcing rules on behalf of a landowner and not the local authority?

Yes, it does, it means that you are safe to ignore the ticket. Some councils are using private companies to hand out their tickets, so when you mentioned road I thought it could be worth checking, just in case.

Or you could just randomly stick invoices to cars and see what happens. It's about the same as what OPC are doing.

 

Even better! Stick an invoice on an OPC vehicle because they're on your road. Threaten them with Graham White if you need to :D

You need to pay sooner rather than later, or you will end up in court.

I have no idea it would be between the managing agents and the owners of the flats, my lease is with the flat owner and does not reflect anything about this parkng rubbish. I will have a chat with one of the neighbourse and find out.

I have now established when the flats were sold in the leasehold it stipulated no parking on the road. So legally what does that mean, I have also worked out OPC are getting about 2K a month in management fees

Show us the exact wording of the lease.

 

The road isn't your though I believe and the owner (management company?) can stipulate no parking if they wish.

 

Of course, OPC can only give out unenforceable invoices which you can ignore if you wish.

I do not have access to the lease as my agrrememnt is with landlord, he will hve lease with management company

They'll be a lease for the flat which may mention the road in terms of access. If there is any parking space for the flat, that will be included in the flat's lease.

 

If there is a separate contract with the management company that may mention what's going on with the road.

 

Since you don't have access to this, the only possible contract you have with OPC will be any signage on the road.

 

OPC will need a contract with whoever owns the road though. You could request the management company provides you with a copy of their contract, although they don't have to provide it. They would need to produce it in any small claims case though to demonstrate privity.
