    • 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

Was this by email and did it have a link in the text to click. If so then be cautious and if you are thinking of taking up the offer then email Amazon direct and ask them about it.

This is a well-established viral sales technique, it also works for 'free' software, that you are given an unlock code if you purchase a service or product - normally it involves you buying something from one vendor to provide a lead-in to another. Quite normal, as long as you know when to stop!

Ticket2Save have taken £14.95 from my bank account on two occasions now - they insist I signed up with them when I ordered from Amazon. I have cancelled the 'membership' but they refuse to refund me

It is very difficult to prove wrongdoing, especially if you have provided them with your card details. What were you supposed to get in exchange?

As far as I can tell, I signed up for message alerts on tickets and performances in my area. There is absolutely no way I would have done this, even if it was free! But they have my card details so I must have done so. I have asked for a copy of the 'contract'. My post was to warn others of what appears to be a very clever [problem].

Evidence that they have your card details (and that you've effectively paid for their service) is usually enough to prove that a contract exists, so all they need to do is confirm when and where your details were provided, nothing more. Many of these 'sales' depend of confusion marketing, and often catch out the unwary with 'hidden' T&C windows that appear behind the screen you are reading, this is why it is vitally important to ensure you never disclose your card numbers to firms that ask for them, EVEN if it supposedly just to confirm you're 'Over 18' and the like.

 

Since credit cards will only protect with Section 75 if the debit is for more than £100 (a single debit, not cumulative) a reversal is hard to achieve. For debit cards, there is not s75 and the bank will simply say ask the merchant for a refund. Intermediate services (like Paypal - when offered) keep your number secret, and no additional debits can be taken without you explicitly authorising it.
