    • 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

4 Bailiffs seized my car while it was parked in my driveway for unpaid council tax. They told me it will be sold at action within 7 days unless I give them £5000 in CASH right away!

 

I am beside myself with worry....do I have ANY RIGHTS? ANY ADVICE WOULD BE APPRECIATED!

you must have letters from the council before the bailiffs arrived

do you know the amount of the liability order

 

I have never herd of them before so I googled 'Burns' and 'Goddard' and cant find a bailiff firm with this name (I'm not saying they don't exist have a google and see what you can find out about them ) normally when a bailiff firm is heavy handed like this you find complaints on google about them

 

what is the name of the bailiff on the 'Removal of Goods Notice'

http://www.consumeractiongroup.co.uk/forum/showthread.php?210956-On-line-search-to-check-if-a-Bailiff-is-Certificated.....

 

I put Burns and Goddard and Burns & Goddard in the on-line search and came up with nothing (this list is not 100% accurate ) put the bailiffs name and see what you can find

 

 

'Removal of Goods Notice'(thats the form i was thinking about )sorry

Hi....They are real Bailiffs because I phoned

Tameside Revenues Division,

Exchequer and Support Services,

Council Offices, and spoke to the guy in charge of the dept, who confirmed they have the car and intend to sell it if I don't pay at least £5000 by next week!

I wasn't saying they don't exist usually you get an idea of what you are up against by the amount of complaints you find and i couldn't find any

the bailiff that removed the car must be certificated

 

 

one thing for sure if there is more than 1 liability order you will be charged multiple fee (this is not allowed)

I suspect this has been a planned action by the Council and their internal Bailiffs. From what you say earlier it appears this has been ongoing for a number of years.

 

You need to establish how many Liability Orders you have against you? How much each one is for? How much is outstanding on each one? When they were issued? What periods of time the covered? When they passed them to the Bailiff to action?

 

You also need to ask the Bailiffs fora Breakdown of charges on each account - you can go back 6 years. If you haven't the account numbers you can SAR the Council - most do this free of charge but if they insist it's only a tenner.

 

Possibly the only other person who may be able to help will be your local Councillor.

Sorry, but I have not been posting very much lately as I have an awful problem responding to queries as the print is so tiny and I am constantly making so many spelling errors!!

 

Sadly, with a debt this size and going back 6 or 7 years you will not find that the local authority will be willing to have their bailiff's agree a payment proposal, in particular given that they have a car (without finance) which could

provide a lump sum to bring the arrears down.

 

You need to be aware that in the normal course of events, if a car is "worth" approx £9,000 it will normally only raise approx £2,000 at auction. Did you give the bailiff the keys to the car?

 

Have you obtained breakdowns from the bailiff co that have been charged under each account?
