    • Just to give another view of the NHS and GPs - two GPs probably saved my life last year.   I'd been extremely ill, no appetite, significant weight loss, not taking enough fluids.  Wife took me to A&E.  Terrible experience.  After four hours told my wife to take me home.  She said "told you this was a mistake.  I'll get you an emergency GP appointment tomorrow".  Saw a GP Registrar (essentially a trainee GP) following afternoon.  She was very concerned and asked a colleague for a second opinion.  Second GP was horrified as soon as she saw me, and said "You ought to be in hospital".  She told the trainee to arrange to have me admitted to hospital and just over two hours later (after my wife had driven me there) I was in bed on a medical assessment ward.  Stayed in hospital for a week and was only discharged because they needed the bed.   I was going to complain about my A&E experience (I think the triage nurse must have screwed up my triage assessment) but a week after I was discharged, I had to take my wife to A&E as her optician thought she might have a detached retina.  It was about 5:30pm on a Saturday and the place was full of injured footballers and rugby players.  It was much busier than it had been on the Monday afternoon I'd been there, but my wife saw a doctor in 20 mins and we were out in 40 mins.  I decided that sometimes you're just unlucky...

    • I keep an eye on the NHS board because I'm a former NHS manager.  I saw this thread started years ago and thought I'd have look.   I'm sure it's purely coincidental, but when I got to #61, it reminded me of a different poster on a different thread from last year.  They aren't identical, but the way things are expressed are remarkably similar.  (eg 20 min wait - ask receptionist - Drs are very busy - wait another 20 min - ask again - receptionist checks computer - says Dr has refused to see you because of complaint 2 years ago - transferred to another GP who expresses "shock" at other Dr's behaviour - vague and confusing references to a "justified" complaint.   Maybe it's just me, but they seem remarkably similar, although the other thread is missing a 2014, 2016, 2017 backstory.     layla_83   As others have already said, there seems little point in complaining now about issues that stem from things that happened in 2014 (and 2016?).  If you wanted to complain to "put the system right", you should have done that six years ago.  Even if the original GP is still about, they won't remember any of it, so there will be absolutely no opportunity for them to learn any lessons from it.  And the fact that the original GP did not want to see you (or rather your mother) because you (she) had made a complaint against them two years ago most certainly does not mean that the GP remembers anything from 2014, it just means that you (or your mother) are flagged up on their system as a "complainer".  As I asked a year ago, why would anyone be unhappy because a GP they had previously complained about refused to see them?  You should be relieved!!!  You say the GP should not take the complaint personally, but if I were a GP I would not want to treat anyone who has made a complaint against me.  (And if you are connected to that other thread, you should have complained to your local CCG or the GMC by now).   You were going to send a letter of complaint to the practice in 2017, so why only now complain about their response?  Did it take them nearly three years to reply?

The Solicitors Disciplinary Tribunal hearing is listed to take place from 16th-20th January 2012.

 

Let’s wish Crossley a prosperous new year but somehow I don’t think that’s going to be the case. What goes around comes around big boy!

Well it's his second time in front of such a hearing so no doubt he's concocted a tale or two to tell.

It's actually going to be his THIRD appearance before the disciplinary tribunal.


As of 03/03/12 please do not under any circumstances wait for my further input or guidance on any current thread or defence of a court claim I might have been involved in on or through Cag.

In that case the two previous appearances should NOT be taken lightly, this guy is a disgrace to his profession, and typical of the 'debt collecting industry' as well.

No doubt the parasite will appear like the Phoenix and rise from the ashes like he did the last time. :(

I think he got off lightly with just a 2 year ban, should have been life as he's no stranger to the solicitors disciplinary tribunal.

 

Mr Crossley admitted 6 of the allegations against him before the Tribunal. A further allegation was withdrawn by the SRA, and the final allegation relating to the data leak from Mr Crossley's computer servers was unadmitted but found proved against him.

 

Mr Crossley admitted that he allowed his independence to be compromised; acted contrary to the best interests of his clients; acted in a way that was likely to diminish the trust the public places in him or in the legal profession; and entered into arrangements to receive contingency fees for work done in prosecuting or defending contentious proceedings before the courts of England and Wales except as permitted by the statute or law. He also admitted that he had acted where there was a conflict of interest in circumstances not permitted, in particular because there was a conflict with those of his clients; and used his position as a solicitor to take or attempt to take advantage of other persons being recipients of letters of claim either for his own benefit of benefit of his clients.

 

The Tribunal suspended Mr Crossley from the Roll of Solicitors for a period of two years and awarded costs against him in the sum of £76,326.55. This means that Mr Crossley is unable to practise as a solicitor until such time has elapsed, and that should he continue to do so he will be committing a criminal offence.

Hopefully they will now review all his cases and recind the judgements by default - I think judgement by default should be scrapped as many claimants abuse the court by hoping people won't defend, lame excuse I've come across is 'you borrowed the money and didn't repay so therefore you have no defence'.

 

In Mr Crossley's case he did not own the copyright on the items he was defending and therefore was acting as a third party collecting doubtful debt that had arisen 'due to misuse of the orginal copyright'.

Good result especially coming after the two from Davenport Lyons were found to be in breach of various SRA rules too.

 

Surely though DL and the Crossle/ACS must of known that this was coming, whilst they may have got away with avoidong criminal law, the SRA does not take matters like this lightly, some of the major SRA accusations were blatantly obvious even before ACS's meltdown and data leak.

 

What does amaze me is the costs that SRA come up with £75K for Crosselys case and £150K for the DL one, both cases only lated a few days....unbelievable. !..but of course its good to see the guilty parties punished. :)

 

I bet Crossely was very pleased with himself when niave and frightened folk started sending him cheques as a result of his letters but regrets it all now.

 

Lets hope this is a final warning to others contemplating similar action..yes..there were/are one or two !

A bit disappointed with just a 2 year ban but when this is up at least his reputation will remain evermore in tatters and can’t see any reputable firm of sols employing this bumbling buffoon. Wish I could have been there in person to see the smile wiped off his previously smug bloated face, but at least our statement was read out to the tribunal to help nail this disgraceful specimen of a human.
