    • 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

To OP: Can't you learn to seperate your mind and inner beliefs into whats right, whats fai,r and whats the decent thing to do, compartments. You entered into an contract so stick with it and do watch Sky, you get many hours each day of some wonderful entertainment espeically films. Why not ask your son to pay the bill, but having said this its highly unususal for a son to ask his mum for Sky to be installed before he comes home?[rather curious indeed] As for Sky, to me its unfair to insist all new subscribers must enter into an 12 month contract, 6 months might be better, so check out the post above on cancellation rights. My beef is with Virgin TV, my complaint is "if you change your package/s, add or delete something they automatically sign you up to an new 12 month contract, we were with them for some 5+ years and in the end left, to long to explain here, but they do charge £5-00 PER MONTH for no direct debit, and if there payments agents are slow transferring your bill money to them they ignore the actual date of payment and use the date of its receipt. If a weekend work break interevenes they can and do put £10-00 on your bill "for late payment". Getting it back is so much of an hassle that we left them.

Your son said he'd pay for it, you ordered it on his behalf - it is a payment that he must make to you. It was his actions that resulted in your additional expense, if he doesn't offer to meet your additional payments to Sky, you've learned a valuable lesson for the future should a similar situation occur.

As it turned out the sky engineer was unable to fit Hd because my tv is on the wall and he wouldnt go near it.

He phoned sky instalition teamm and told them he would not be carrying out the install.. My son paid for all the stations for the month and he can wait till he has hiis own place if he wants all singing and dancing sky :)
