    • 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...")
    • 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

Weve been with BT for years but they were so poor that we left them in may and started with o2 as our broadband is with them

well thats what we thought


due to our bad credit o2 refused it but didnt tell us, we got a letter of confirmation from them and a start date and also a letter saying sorry your leaving from BT


If it doesnt go ahead do you go back to your original provider? have had nothing from either company until I asked o2 why our direct debits hadnt gone out


Everything is still working at the minute phone, broadband etc, but im concerned we are now floating and might end up with nothing


any experience/ideas?


I know I need to ring BT ,but cant at the minute so stressing somewhat

Hi Summer,


I think the only option you have at the moment is either stay with BT and set up your direct debits with them again, or try another provider. I am with talk talk and am happy with the pricing but if you are happy with your internet with o2 then talk talk may not be the best financial option. Sky have good pakages for phones and so do Virgin.


It all depends on your area. Just give yourself time to compose yourself and set out a plan to get your services back online. If you keep getting refused on Credit Checks then staying with BT may be your only option at this moment in time.


I hope this helps in some way.

If it is broadband you are after you could try Plusnet, they don't do credit checks and if you have a BT line in it is very easy.

Sky has a good offer on at the moment. It is worth having a look. I moved to Sky a few months ago and have never looked back :D

have ordered sky thanks all,


they say its gone through although I dont know if they will do a credit check, fingers crossed,


o2 said we would have gone back to BT as they cancelled it, but we didnt even get a letter to that effect from BT. nice to be kept informed, I think i was upset last night as the reply id got from o2 made me feel like a second class citizen, I know we have bad credit history but thats what it is 4 years ago, we arent bad people

Sorry this is a bit after the fact...


BT are ridiculously terrible at communicators considering that's sort of their thing. They still call me every week or so looking for someone who used to live at my property but when I cancelled them they didn't so much as send a letter to confirm.


My policy with them after several moves in recent years is to just let them do whatever and get away as soon as possible. Good luck with your new Sky! :)
