    • 2 years ago I made a complaint against a GP at my surgery....the reply I received was the GP could not recall the events (in the complaint) because the GP see so many patients a day and the complaint I sent was 12 months after the event.   Now to what happened recently....   1. I had a appoointment at 10am with the same GP I had made a complaint againt over 1 year ago...I booked myself at reception and waited, waited when it was 10.20 I asked at receptionion when would I been seent, as my appointment was at 10am. A receptionist told me 'There has been an emergency of some kind with a patient...so that has caused a delay and your appointment will now be moved to another GP' - I asked why the appointment was moved and was told 'sorry I cannot tell you' and you will be seen soon.   2. 10.30am and still not been seen so I asked another receptionist, she checked the computer system and told me the GP (name) has refused to see me because I made a complaint against him over 12 months ago and now my appointment was being moved to a different GP and I had to wait. I told the receptionist this was wrong and the GP had to be impartial as a GP and he was making this personal by not seeing me.   3. Eventually I was called and saw a different GP and explained to him what happened and the GP I had originally had an appointment with had refused to see me because of a complaint I raised against him over 12 months ago. The GP I was with was shocked and surprised and told me that GP should not have refused to see me   NOW I need your help to write a complaint, please can you help me
    • ok...thank you. I have read the post (thank you for guiding me to that) and will write in similar thread.   My worry is that I lied to the inspector about not having used the card before. I also recall now that he did not ask me to sign the notes he took so I am worried I have no idea what he wrote down.    Without my signature on his notes, would this be admissible evidence in court?

    • Hiya   First time poster, but hopefully I can help you to resolve your matter.   I really empathise with your position. I received a visit from an equita baliff on 10 May 2019. The feeling was horrible and they were exceedingly polite but also inflexible and threatening. I was informed that they would clamp and remove my car.   The rationale behind this is that the Baliffs are not employees, they are sub-contractors paid based on the fees that they can generate. Taking a vehicle creates more fees. Unfortunately for them, there is a very quick process to get the matter resolved:   1) Phone the Traffic Enforcement Centre in Northampton - it is crucial to do this first thing in the morning. 2) Request permission to file an out of time witness statement (forms TE7 and TE9). Upon correct completion, the forms will be passed to the local authority and enforcement action will cease at that point. The TEC will inform you that the forms have been correctly filed and the action will cease. 3) Forward a copy of this email to equita 4) Contact the local authority directly and explain your circumstances. The local authority will be more sympathetic than the baliffs - especially if you are a vulnerable person. A manager within the local authority will have the authority (as the prosecuting party) to instruct the Baliffs not to continue and instruct them to waive their enforcement fees 5) To ensure that this goes smoothly, make sure you offer to pay the council what you owe and also cover the cost of the court filing fee. At this stage, it will be worth complying with the council and paying the c. £80.

    • This is a bit of a lengthy one but I’ll summerise best as possible.
       
      THIS IS HOW THE PHONECALL WENT 
       
      I was contacted by future comms by phone, they stated that they could beat any phone contract I have , (I am a limited company but just myself that needs a business phone and I am the only worker) 
      I told future comms my deal, £110 per month with a phone and a virtual landline, they confirmed that they could beat that, £90 per month with a phone , virtual landline  they also confirmed they would pay Vodafone (previous provider) the termination fee. As I am in business, naturally I was open to making a deal. So we proceeded. 
      Future comms then revealed that the contract would be with PLAN.COM and the airtime would be provided by 02, I instantly told them that this would break the deal as I have poor 02 signal in the house where I live as my partner is on 02 and constantly complaining about bad signal
      the salesman assured me he would send a signal booster box out with the phone so I would have perfect signal.
      so far so good.....
      i then explained this is the only mobile phone I use for business and pleasure, so therefore I didn’t want any disconnection time in the slightest between the switchover from Vodafone to 02
      the salesman then confirmed that the existing phone would only be disconnected once the new phone was switched on.
      so far so good....

    • The FSA has announced large fines against DB UK Bank Limited (trading as DB Mortgages) - DeutscheBank and also against Redstone for their unfair treatment of their customers.
      Please see the links below for summaries and full details from the FSA website.
      It is now completely clear that any arrears charges which exceed actual administrative costs are unfair and therefore unlawful.
      Furthemore, irresponsible lending practices are also unfair and unlawful.
      Additionally there are other unfair practices including unarranged counsellor visits - even if they have been attempted.
      You are entitled to refuse counsellor visits and not incur any charges.
      Any charges for counsellor visits must not seek to make profits. The cost of the visits must be passed on to you at cost price.
      We are hearing stories of people being charged for counsellor visits for which there is no evidence that they were even attempted.
      It is clear that some mortgage lenders are trying to cheat you out of your money.
      You should ascertain how much has been taken from you and claim it back. The chances of winning are better than 90%. It is highly likely that the lender will attempt to avoid court action and offer you back your money.
      However, you should ensure that you receive a proper rate of interest and this means that you should be seeking at least restitutionary damages - which would be much higher than the statutory 8%.
      Furthermore, you should assess whether the paying of demands for unlawful excessive charges has also out you further into arrears and if this has caused you further penalties in terms of extra interest or any other prejudice. This should be claimed as well.
      If excessive unlawful charges have resulted in your credit file being affected, then you should take this into account also when working out exactly what you want by way of remedy from the lender.
      You should consult others on these forums when considering any offer.
      You must not make any complaint through the Ombudsman. your time will be wasted, you will wait up to 2 yrs and there will be a minimal 8% award of interest and no account will be taken of any other damage you have suffered.
      You must make your complaint through the County Court for a rapid and effective remedy.

Thanks from another member for pointing me to where to post been looking all day. Wanting to help son who as learning/physical disabilities he as an account with Lloyds Tsb for last couple of years hese had an account he pays £7 a month for he gets free breakdown for his scooter and insurance for his mobile etc.

 

He as a £700 overdraft he has gone over the agreed amount on a few occasions and had charges On October 1st he had a £70 charge and a £90 charge he complained and the manager who is a lovely chap said he could give him one back but that was all he was allowed to do, he also prewarned him that a further charge of £90 and £10 was due on 1st November for a returned direct debit and going over his overdraft, from viewing his account on line I cannot see anywhere where is only direct debit of £13 as been returned, and he as nearly always put is account back into credit before end of banking on the day

 

I want to help him and know that he as had 2 different accounts in last 2 years as the manager said his 1st account was for children and that he shouldn`t have been on that account from becoming an adult so now his account and number are different hence on the on line banking I can only go back 2 years looking at his statements then it`s a dead end, please advise what to do next, I have said he should open another account say at Nat West which is the only other bank in our town would he be able to open one he doesn`t work through is health etc his partner gets their joint money in her name as she is his carer which doesn`t go in the bank but he does have DLA going in the bank monthly, I should asume his credit rating is poor

You will have to send in a DPA SAR Letter in the bank templates library in my sig, was the bank aware of your sons learning difficulties when they made him change his account? if so they should've been able to keep him on his old account i would've thought as he obviously cant handle financial responsibilities which please believe me i am not blaming him for! He himself would be better off getting a very basic account with only a cashcard so that he cant draw out money he hasnt got and his g/f could transfer money into it for him online.

hope this helps?

Hya Laura, if you look in the Lloyds bank thread's, I'm freebird's flightpath..and how !

 

I empathise..I went round in circles for the first few weeks and couldn't remember where I seen threads, I was interested in..and I kept getting lost..

 

some on here might say I'm still lost..lol....

 

but now when I read something I'd like to follow I click on permalink by the scales on the dark blue border, then as well as following "new post" and coming in to the Lloyds section I can also quickly look at the threads I'm following by clicking on "quick links" at the top of the page......

 

If you ask your questions in the Lloyds section there's usually always someone around some time during the day, to help you out..good luck and keep in touch.

Freebird x(p.s. I too have a daughter with a disabilty/learning difficulty)

Hi Laura

 

No worries - we all started new once. The forum is a wealth of information and my advice would be to print anything off that you find interesting or useful. I've kept plastic wallets labelled up with things like 'default information', ' court bundle', 'Limitation Act', 'Account closure', 'good wording to use when the bank has asked for a stay', etc etc. Please don't be alarmed by all that - it's extra stuff you learn along the way by reading all the different stories on these threads. Do beware - Lloyds are known to be one of the 'sticky' ones who will try and make you sweat it out. So long as you are not desperate for the money, you won't feel the pressure - they'll pay out in the end and quite frankly - with your son having difficulties, he should have been treated with extra kid gloves and looked after much, much better than the treatment he's received. You go get 'em, girl!!!

I just want to clear something up, don't get stressed about what exact address to send your sar to, I personally sent mine to their registered head office, however you have received two other good addresses there, they are all active Lloyds addresses, it doesnt matter which or who you send the request to , it will get re routed internally, I would however go with Michael's address if you are really sticky about having a definate address, otherwise the one I used for ALL my correspondance was the Gresham Street address.

That is the address you receive you data from, i feel it saves valuable time as Lloyds take a 6 - 8 months to settle.

Thanks for all the information and postings especially from Steve about where to find things spoke to my friend in business today he said that others have commented to him about how difficult this site is to make out I find it a nightmare I hope it eases. Sent off today for the Data stuff son signed the letter and I sent it Recorded, was shocked to read tonight that infact some cases do get into court I was led to believe they don`t get that far so how would I go on as I`m doing all the work yet it`s son`s claim as such he couldn`t possibly represent himself he wouldn`t understand any or it

The very few cases that have been to court have been either allocation hearings or case management conferences. These are 'pre-trial' and not actually hearing the case.

 

If, and it's an enormous if, your son had to appear in court, you would be able to act as his lay representative and present the case on his behalf. But don't worry, it will almost certainly never come to this.

My son is due another £100 penalty charge on 1st November with Lloyds Tsb does he have to accept this charge or can he state it should not be took whilst he is in dispute with the bank? also these £1 charges for overseas transactions will he be able to claim these back on his claim with the unfair penalty charges or are these a seperate issue?

Hi Laura, a phone call to the customer service dept, explaining the circumstances might help, they may cancel the forthcoming charges, i know they did for me, shortly before settling my claim ;-)

As for the £1 charges, are they possibly a charge by the ATM owner?? I would imagine these are NOT reclaimable

You can try, but most likely they'll ignore you and charge him any way. Just add this and any future charges to your calim right up to when you file at court.

 

The overseas charges are a service and can't be claimed

Not rung Lloyds Tsb but son says his £100 charge as not gone out today? strange as I have not started anything with them other than send for Sars last week. The £1 overseas charges are by the bank for every time you use your card abroad, and I read somewhere on one of the threads that a lady on here claimed them back?
