    • 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, thanks for the support received from this site so far. I am spreading the word and helping others caught in the debt spiral.

 

 

I had a loan with A&L now with Santander. My income stopped when I had one payment outstanding and I have been making small payments against this, as and when I can.

 

I was self employed and realised that the PPI sold to me was useless. They have agreed to a full and final settlement figure with 8% interest, which is great, but they are saying that the amount will be paid against the outstanding arrears.

 

the acceptance form says:

 

This amount will be used to repay the outstanding arrears on your account before the balance, if any, is paid to you.

 

(PPI arrears are £5.62 Loan arrears are £270).

 

Basically, is this legal, as I have outstanding priority debts that I am struggling with at the moment (rent, council tax etc.) and could use this money (£150) more effectively.

 

 

Hope that someone can help.

Hi Rocky,

 

Under the right to offset, Santander can use your PPI to clear any arrears on your loan only. Anything above and beyond the arrears on the loan must be refunded directly to you.

 

Have you already done your own calculations of how much you are due?

Thanks for the reply dj.

They have calculated the amount and added 8% interest.

How can I check the amount is correct?

Hi Rocky Roadster,

 

I'm in a similar boat like you. Abbey want to pay themselves though they closed my account, although I had a balance oustanding and sent me a statement saying i owe £0.00. They now want to hold onto the refund which is just under £7k which i was able to get them to confirm by using the letters on this wonderful forum! will be writing to them again once i get more advice.:mad:

 

re checking if the calulations are right, there's a post on this forum that has a link to the payment calculator. You enter the amount you took out, duartion of the loan and APR and it works it all out for you - sorry not sure how to copy & paste onto here yet, very new to the forum. i hope this helps - if I make any headway with Abbey, I'll let you know.

Rocky,

 

We will need some information from you in order to calculate the amount you are owed.

 

1) Total cost of PPI

2) Amount of monthly repayments for PPI

3) Interest rate charged on PPI

4) Number of repayments

5) Date of final repayment

If the account is in dispute can they still offset payments you claim against the debt?

 

"Furthermore you should be aware that a creditor is not permitted to take ANY action against an account whilst it remains in dispute.

 

The lack of a credit agreement is a very clear dispute and as such the following applies.

 

* You may not demand any payment on the account, nor am I obliged to offer any payment to you."

Would this apply?

Hi ZENTRIX9,

 

Unfortunately this account is not in dispute. I couldn't make the last payment and have got the PPI refunded to help clear the debt.

They sold the account to Moorcroft when they got my PPI refund acceptance. I got a letter from Moorcroft demanding the outstanding balance plus, so I rang Santander (A&L) to see what was happening and they said the refund would go to Moorcroft. The A&L (Santander) PPI offer letter said they would also refund letter charges, so I asked how much over the phone and they said £75 would be paid by internal transfer, when I asked if Moorcroft would get it they just said it would be an internal transfer. Moorcroft haven't had it.

 

Moorcroft have now acknowledged the PPI refund, and are chasing for the balance. They haven't informed me what the balance is though, just "ring and pay up".

 

Any ideas on what I should do next?

 

RR
