    • 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 have received a claim form via Northampton from Cabot/Morgans. In the POC they are claiming for three different alleged debts.

One is for a Goldfish card which I have never had, the second is a loan from Egg that Egg have never proved I had and the third is an Egg card.

 

Is anyone aware if this is common for them to do this?

 

What I am concerned about is as this progresses through the court it will become very confusing.

 

I only have another day to put my defence in becasue I have been away and just come back to the find the claim form.

 

I will start by trying to find some threads on Cabot to find something similar in the meantime if anyone has first hand experience of this or can direct me to a thread it would be appreciated.

Hi I don't think they can do this! Have you acknowledged service? Are your dates correct? From my total ignorance, I would suggest sending an embarrassed defence with the request that you can amend the defence if you get any documents through.

Have you sent off CPR requests for these documents (I'm guessing not if you have been away)?

You could also ping the triangle to ask the site team if they could give further advice.

Any chance you can remove identifying/personal information and pop the POC up for us to have a look at :) Also, can we know the date of issue - top right hand corner under the claim number. That way we can keep on track with time line.

They really shouldn't be doing this - lumping them together in this way means that value of the claim is over inflated, therefore probably pushing it in to another track, not to mention complicating it for all concerned.

 

Firstly, you should contact them by phone to say that you've just received the claim form as you've been away, and ask them for more time to submit your defence - even if you acknowledge, now, you still wont have long to draw up 3 defences. Also ask if they intend on splitting the claims in to 3, as that will mean the whole process starts over again, from the beginning, and you should get 3 claim forms requiring 3 defences. Get something in writing, even by email, to verify what is agreed on the phone. Don't discuss the claim, or your possible defences, just focus on getting more time out of them. You can then write to the Court with the details, so they know what's going on.

 

It will be difficult sending CPR requests when the claim is in this state - even more so if they are going to split them, which it looks like they will need to do. Some CCA requests wouldn't go astray at this stage, though, as they are specific to those accounts, not the claim. See the template library, creditors letter.


Always happy to help where I can!

I am a little concerned that you havent acknowledged service in time ? Do phone Northampton up as well and explain the situation.

 

You can ask for more time under CPR15.5, but that needs to be agreed with the Opposition as Car2403 has already advised.

Id disagree with Car on one vital point,

 

Pick up the phone yes, but do not rely upon that,

 

CPR 15.5 allows you to agree an extension of time for filing the defence, however, firstly you should back this up with a letter to the party confirming the contents of the telephone call, and secondly and most importantly, you MUST wrote to the court and advise them that you have agreed an extension of time,CPR15.5(2)

 

If you fail to advise the court you will get judgment against you,

 

but, this is why i said the importance of backing up the call in writing, as you then have an exhibit to put with your application to show you have attempted to discuss the matter with the other party.

id also point out that the CPR 31.15 in particular requires requests for inspection to be complied with within 7 days of receipt, so you must send a written request for pleaded documents.

Not sure you're disagreeing, really, when I said;

 

Firstly, you should contact them by phone to say that you've just received the claim form as you've been away, and ask them for more time to submit your defence

 

Then...

 

Get something in writing, even by email, to verify what is agreed on the phone. Don't discuss the claim, or your possible defences, just focus on getting more time out of them. You can then write to the Court with the details, so they know what's going on.

 

I love CAG because not everyone knows everything, but we all pull together and fill in the blanks. (Where there are some :whoo:)

Thanks for the replies,

Citizen B, I am a little reluctant to copy the claim on here, even with with my details blanked out i still feel that to prying eyes it would be recognisable, paranoid? maybe, but I have dealt with Cabot before. Regarding time I managed to submit an Acknowledment of Service on the last day. The claim arrived at my house on the 24th August.

I have sent a CPR request to Morgans I used CPR 31.12, which in nutshell asks for want I want to see had their POC been particularised properly.

I will see what comes back from that.

 

CAR2403 "They really shouldn't be doing this - lumping them together in this way means that value of the claim is over inflated, therefore probably pushing it in to another track, not to mention complicating it for all concerned."

Thats what I am most concerned about, bit reluctant to phone but think I will have to.

 

Paul thanks for comments as well.

Morgan Solicitors have replied partly to my CPR request, although they claim to not have to,

 

"Please find enclosed........A copy of the signed credit agreement in relation to Goldfish account ref ..... and the full terms and conditions prevailing at the time of assignment"

 

What they have enclosed is not very legible.

 

The T&C's relate to Goldfish, I know I have never had a Goldfish account.

 

Do the T&C'c have to be what were in force at the time of opening the account or as Morgans say at the time of the assignment?

In answer to your question, yes I think they do have to be from inception of the account. They need to show that provision was made within the original t&cs for the actions taken ie assignment of the account, and any variation of the t&cs.

the basic principal is costs follow the event

 

Therefore, the loser pays the winners costs.

 

If you lose then you will face the costs of the losing party, there is a lot of misunderstanding about costs too, the Fast track has fixed trial costs, however, you will be liable for the reasonable costs incurred up to the trial, so while a standard fast track barristers fee is say £690 plus vat for under £10k claims, you could still face £35k costs in the lead to the trial

I have received a default notice dated a month after the issue of the court proceedings.

 

Also some statements that show late fees and charges which I did not know about.

 

Still very difficult to make any sense of it all, I have to write to the court soon to explain what attempts we have made to mediate/negotiate a settlement.

There is a difference between "negotiating" and "being seen to negotiate"
