    • 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

I am really stumped here, i have 2 children, the first has ADHD and gets low mobility and high care component on dla, the second is profoundly deaf and gets middle care, I have just moved home recently and i cannot even park outside my house, every house in my street has min 2 cars, some 3 and a few 4 and everyone parks outside other people's houses, there is also a pub on the corner and people park in my street when the car park is full. I am a single mum with 2 children, 8 and 10 months and have to park in the next street and struggle to my home with my kids, i have been told i cannot apply for high rate mobility as my child who had ADHD can walk which i understand but i know a girl who has 3 kids with ADHD and gets full mobility care for all 3 and a mobility car. Now i am not being funny but surely there is something wrong here, I phoned the DLA and explained that i knew this girl and got told she must of been getting high mob for years as it has now got more strict but surely it cannot be one for for one and sod everyone else. Her children do not have any other problems, go to mainstream schools, play in football teams etc so how come she gets it and no one else can.

you are correct it often seems it cannot be right but without knowing her full circumstances, we cant comment, and in your case if there is no proof of a actual mobility problem you wont get high rate mobility, I can understand your problem with residential parking etc, but a BLUE BADGE does not cover that, it may well be she knows how to work the system but its going to be hard for her to work it to get a mobility car for a child, or there are some factors regarding 1 or more of the kids you may not know about, or may be getting the HR mobility for herself, for something she wont tell anyone about

Now that is a question. I have only just noticed your posting, so hope you get this.

 

The person from DLA is totally correct except maybe she should have been wiser not to put it in those words.

 

It is a fact that DLA was pretty easy to get up until last year or so. I know of many examples that completely baffle me, and before anybody says anything, yes in those cases I am very friendly with all of them. There would be nothing that I don't know.

To be honest I applied about 4/5 years ago and didn't think I would ever in a month of Sundays get it. The first application failed. As it was coming up to the time to return the second claim, I only returned part 1 of the claim (they were in two parts at the time, this part is for personal info, part 2 for details of disability etc).

Over the next few weeks I kept getting 'phone calls from DLA asking for part 2. Thinking that I would never get it, I binned it.

Guess what, a couple of weeks later I was awarded Low Rate Mobility for Life because I sometimes found it difficult to mix with strangers. So they even awarded it without the claim form being sent back. I presume they used the first claim as evidence - they never contected my GP!

 

Try getting it now - it is like getting blood out of a stone!!!

Applying for these benefits is all about getting the right EVIDENCE to prove the need. Review what you submitted to apply for the benefit and see if the evidence can be improved. However when you do be aware that the benefit can go down too or indeed taken away and then you have to appeal.

 

Blue badges are nothing to do with DLA they are the remit of the local authority you really need the support of your GP in your case. If you are successful you could then apply for a reserved bay outside your house but have no idea how successful that may or may not be.
