    • 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've received a letter from restons saying they plan to take me to court etc for an MBNA credit card.

 

I'm in a debt management plan via CCCS.

 

Are they likely to take this kind of action while I'm paying them as much as I can via CCCS?

CCCS are funded by the finance industry.... but dressed up to look like they're there for the consumer, so I'm not surprised that this has escalated.

 

How old is this debt?

What do you mean how old? If you mean is prior to 2007 then it is and I have a copy of the CCA already. Which to be honest looks ok according to MBNA the templates on here.

 

I was under the impression that any court action would be fruitless unless I stopped paying via CCCS? If I'm paying them what are the advantages of them taking me to court? Or is it an idle threat?

There doesn't seem much point unless you own property and the thought of getting a CCJ and CO look attractive to them. CCCS are not a safety net as far as consumers are concerned.... and although creditors/DCAs shouldn't take court action when you're making regular payments, it's not the norm for them to follow the rules now, is it? :rolleyes:

The CCA I got back from them is illegible to a certain extend, I cant really read all the T&C's and wrote back to them mentioning this and they never responded.

 

I do own a property yes. However they would only get a charging order if I did not pay as per a court order, is that correct? I don't think a CCJ is going to make much difference really as the threat of one doesn't really bother me as my credit rating is already shot and I'm paying at the moment and plan to continue paying what I can afford.

 

Could I respond to any formal action and simply say I'm paying what I can etc. Would this lead to a CCJ?

There are two ways of approaching this, as I see it, depending on which path you want to take.

 

You could say that you wrote to them re. the CCA and that it was illegible but they failed to contact you until now, or

 

You could say that if they decide to proceed with court action in light of the fact that you've been making regular payments via CCCS, that it will be brought to the attention of the court as a vexatious move on their part.

 

Don't say both though.... because in one breath you'd be denying liability for a debt but in the next, you'd be admitting regular payments towards it. :cool:
