    • 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

    • 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

Hi All,


I really could do with some help.


A while ago I purchased some items from a Boot Sale to sell on ebay. I usually stick to clothing, but this time I tried with some electronic equipment.


I paid in cash and came home and listed the items on eBay. As with all my auctions, I stated that the unit was sold as is, with no warranty.


I sold the item and thought all was well and good. A week after selling the unit the buyer contacted me to tell me that the unit was not working and wanted a refund. I told him that the item was sold as is, as stated in the auction. I didn't hear any more from him.


Three months later I received an email from him saying that the item is apparently stolen goods. He tells me that he has resold this item on eBay and the person that he has resold it too has apparently found it to be stolen and has sent it back to the original owner, after informing the Police and Paypal.


Paypal have since refunded his money and the person that I sold the unit to is now out of pocket. They are demanding that I refund their money.


I am reluctant to do this as it seems like I am admitting some sort of guilt, but I really don't want any trouble and have no idea what to do! The other issue is that the other items that I purchased from this seller may have been stolen, but I have no way of finding this out!


Please could someone offer some advice on what I should do as this situation has really got me concerned.


Thank you for your time,

ask for proof!


important first step, i could just say the same to any item.


it seems odd that hes sent the item back to the origional owner as there would be no way for him to obtain their details, if he had contacted the police it would have been returned directly to them. and ussually if the persons insurance had already paid out the item would then be returned to the insurance company or auctioned by the police


incidently it may be a good idea to have a peek at the police auctions and see if its been up their i tend to get alot off there and its amazing what range of goods appear

Yep as above - ask him for the crime number and at what police station it was reported. That will shut him up.

How do you know that the item he sold was the item you sold him?

Sounds like a [problem] to me.


I agree with whats already be said. Ask for proof and the crime ref number and issuing police station name.

There are ways of finding out the original owner. The OP has not mentioned what the item is, but many electronic items have their warranties registered with the manufacturer? If you therefore contact the manufacturer, and explain you bought the thing on ebay, and can you get it fixed, the manufacturer can check the items warranty, the manufacturer can contact the original owner, and could well pass details on, if the real owner is cool with that.


OP, you are acting as a business seller, you are buying with the intention of reselling. That means you have to comply with the Sale of Goods act, as it applies to traders, and you cannot just say you don't provide a warranty.

You don't need to offer a warranty, but as noted above, the SoGA applies and this means that the goods need to be of satisfactory quality considering the price paid and the nature of the goods/sale.
