    • 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

Guys. I like this site, but if you keep moving everything around on an almost nightly basis, I have to ask if you have considered another hobby - like getting a life?

 

LEAVE IT ALONE. It was fine!

I have to agree WG, it's getting a bit out of hand and not for the better. There is going to be so many posts in the wrong place as it is no longer obvious where one has to post or ask a question.

 

In fact, the forum is now one big mess.

If it isn't broken why try to fix it?

 

Everything was fine up until a few weeks ago. Now things are awful.

 

The forum needs to be put back to how it used to look, this yellow & blue theme is hard to look at.

Agreed - the new layout is most bizarre.

 

The Parking and Traffic forum is now located between the NHS and PPI forums.... and so on.

 

If the forums were to be split up, as they have been, care could have at least been taken to group similar categories together.

 

At present, the forums look unprofessional and will be confusing to newcomers.

I too am getting really frustrated with this continual p1$$ing about with the layout. All was well till last month when the major new software change was done (and not for the better, far from!)

 

Now, I can't find the few forums that I generally take an interest in which were nicely grouped under the "motoring" section. This is really bad now to the point I am fast loosing interest in CAG. :(

Might as well just ditch it all and have the one section 'Consumer issues', I can see most things on all subjects will be posted there. The silly little collapse a section arrows aren't explanatory and so small they are easily missed and not everyone is a Bill Gates anyway.

:frusty:

 

I still do not have post times in the threads. :doh:

I still cannot change font, Size, Colour, highlight etc . even in advanced. :nono:

Tonight usable emoticons have changed (better) :hail:

Post Icons have changed (awful) :violin:

General colour and layout not to bad, there again I have not been a member that long the old version was better. :rip:

Yes I do understand the logic in the need for the update as old version being phased out. :smash::nono::yield:

 

 

 

 

 

I do not have a particular field of intrest

Mainly browse new posts, but they seem to less and less

I have found frequently that the forum is just 'off line' recently. You know, you go to have a look and you get 'server not found' or similar.

 

Then after whinging like this yesterday, the site went off at about 4pm with the message 'site upgrading, back about 5pm'. which wasn't back after several looks up to 11pm.

 

So, I am saying right now that if the people who run this forum cannot get their act together and just leave the effing thing alone, I will leave. I don't get paid to be here. I am not one of the directors of what is after all a limited company. Pull your finger out, sort it out and then leave it alone.

 

The very next time I see 'server not found' or 'upgrading' will be the last time I bother visisting. You are taking a good and popular forum and spoiling it.

I have to agree again. Updates/upgrades should be done between 02:00 and 05:00 and not during the day.

 

To me though the worse part is the illogical layout. I mean, Computers and IT is in the middle of no mans land on the general info section, what's that all about. Plus, why no one ever bothers to explain, apologise or asks if everyone is happy, it's a case of lump it if you don't like it.

I had this until I noticed on the right of the thread near the top there's a box Consumer Forums Menu

 

The silly little collapse a section arrows aren't explanatory
if you use them it goes away

 

I found it as I assumed it was something to do with advertising (I use the zoom page in opera a lot) which usually causes this. Seams a bit pointless unless I can edit the links in there for fast switching. Can I? Who knows and more importantly who cares?

I have to admit to not liking some of the changes but this site is now (in construction at least) similar to when I joined the site and all the composite fora were separate.

 

I would like to see groups of fora replaced as the motoring related ones used to be. Having said that, I am ok about some of the changes - though am not sure about the 'Consumer Forum Menu' at the right hand side of the page as it is bunching up the thread and making each post take up more space on the page.

 

Just my tuppenybit.....

I used to frequent the site until they upgraded(or downgraded) and now I just can't find my way around.

 

without being modest i know a thing or two about forums and there was no need for such a transition, it would have been better to modify the script

Well done speedfreek! I had no idea about how to stop it being in a narrow box down the middle of my screen. Fixed now, but still think the changes are cr%p.

I second this.

 

Has anyone here been in contact with admin about this?

 

No one "high up" has commented on this thread. Even if it was to tell us to like it or lump it, some contact would be nice.

 

At present, it seems they just don't care...

Just to say - my post #22 was made because my post (#21) took so long to appear on the thread, I assumed that something had gone wrong.

The only advantage I have found in the past day or 2 is that normally when I have been at work all day, I have a mountain of threads to read to catch up with the forums. Now hardly anyone is posting so it takes no time at all to read through the outstanding posts. :-D
