    • I forgot to add I originally messaged them via there website which I still have access to . Was this Ok ? 
    • If I copied anybody into your complaint it would be your local Care Commissioning Group, not the GMC...
    • So ignore emails from ADCB now ?  I told them they will have to contact me by email and it will have to go to UK courts
    • Hello   Not a legal issue as such but wasn't sure where to ask advice on this.   I have just been awarded £2050 on a PPI claim.  I went through a claims company so i expected to pay them 40% plus VAT of the claim won.  However, i am querying the quoted court costs (which i was not informed about prior to this).  They are quoting the following court costs: -   £205 - Court Issue Fee £335 - Court Hearing Fee   I am no legal expert but these seem very high for such a small financial claim.  I will be lucky to see £500 of the initial £2050 if this is correct (yes i understand the 40% i could have avoided if i didnt use the claims company).  If these costs seem realistic then no probs with agreeing to them but if the claims company artificially inflated these for their own gain i would be none the wiser.     Can anyone advise please?   Thanks 
    • Our general hospital uses a similar system, but I don't think(?) it displays all your personal details for confirmation at the end of the process.  In fact I'm pretty sure that at the end of the process it displays only the last three or four digits of your 'phone number and you must confirm that this is correct.    Also at my GP's surgery it only asks for date and month of birth together with the initial letter of your surname and then it displays "Thank you.  You are recorded as attending".   I would say what you describe is a sort of breach of data protection, but not sure how serious it might be.  (I can see no valid reason for displaying full name and address etc if other hospitals' systems don't).   Go to the website of the NHS Trust in question and see what their complaints process is.  There may be two different processes: one for "general complaints" and a separate one for data protection complaints (eg direct to the trust's data controller*).   Personally, I would complain down both routes.  Don't, whatever you do, get diverted down the PALS (Patient Advice and Liaison Service) path as they won't be equipped to deal with this sort of issue.   As a former NHS manager I'd be interested to know what sort of reply you get.   FWIW I'm surprised(!) the ICO suggested complaining to the GMC as they won't be interested.  This isn't a medical staff issue - it's a trust data management issue.  (I'm really surprised at the ICO's suggestion on this - it's bonkers!).   *If you can't find out how to contact the Trust's data controller from their website, ring and ask them.   EDIT:  I wouldn't allow people to "shoulder surf" me.  Our trust makes it clear that people behind you have to stand behind a line so they can't see over your shoulder.  If anybody was standing directly behind me I would "politely" draw their attention to the notices and "ask" them to stand back.  If your hospital does not make this clear, that's another complaint...)

Hi afteradvice1, I had a similar situation re the Divertion meeting with social worker. A few weeks after meeting the Procurator Fiscal wrote to me giving me a warning for the offence.

 

The letter says "if you accept this warning or if you are deemed to have accepted it, I shall not prosecute you for the offence.

 

The warning is not a conviction and shall not be recorded as one. Any alleged victim may be entitled to be notified of the disposal of the case against you.

 

Information about this warning will however be recorded on the Scottish Criminal History System and will remain on the system for two years. This will be used to help inform future police or prosecution decisions if you offend again and it will be disclosable under 'enhanced disclosure' in terms of Part V of the Police Act 1997 during this time."

 

My understanding (although might not be accurate) is that it may be disclosed in the 'Other relevant information' section of Enhanced Disclosures and PVG checks. From reading on the Disclosure Scotland site this info is included at the discretion of the Police Superintendent.

 

I know this might not be the same outcome for you but I thought I would share my experience.

Thanks peggysue, I'll quote excerpts from my letter.

 

" I am writing to let you know that the PF has now considered your case and is satisfied that no further proceedings are required. This in effect means that your case is finished and will not result in a conviction being recorded against you."

 

It appears we had different outcomes. I'm just unsure if this means there will be no hits on a check.

I've read up a bit about it and its just so unclear. I don't want to disclose I and put myself at a disadvantage if I don't have to.

Guess, I'll jus wait and see what happens.

Seems like your outcome is less severe than mine. Have you thought about contacting Disclosure Scotland or appropriate body or even the PF office for clarification, just to get a definitive answer?

I'm afraid so. I've tried contacting the department of social justice but my case worker is away on holiday. It didn't occur to me to contact DBS. Thanks, would do that.

 

I've made a small donation to the forum. Thanks you al for your help and I'll keep you updated.

Hello all, I'm here to update as promised.

 

Im so grateful to you all for the advice and support you gave me at what I consider the lowest point of my life.

 

As I posted last year,

I spoke to my Dr who placed me on antidepressants and I'm kicking myself for not getting help sooner.

I feel a lot better now and I'm beginning to forgive myself.

 

 

Went back to work in the financial sector last October.

I didn't disclose the diversion as I called the police information line and was told it would not come up in a crb check

Needless to say my check came back clean!

 

I renewed my work permit this year and that went fine as well.

 

And finally I requested a police report for immigration purpose and this came back with no live trace!

 

I am so grateful what happened was seen as our of character

and I will not have to live with the consequences forever.

 

I'm yet to hear from RLP but I honestly can't be a***d about them.

 

If there's anyone in this position reading my post,

don't hesitate to ask me questions,

I will definitely respond since I've walked in same shoes.

 

Thank you all once more!

Hi

Many thanks for coming back to let us know how things have turned out. I am so pleased for you that everything is working out. I will certainly link to your thread in the future if a similar situation happens to someone else.

 

You got the right help that was needed and the Scottish system should be copied elsewhere. Well done :-)

Who ever heard of someone getting a job at the Jobcentre? The unemployed are sent there as penance for their sins, not to help them find work!

That is fabulous news, so happy for you, and glad you are back on track. I'm still waiting to hear about my situation, no procurator fiscal letter and every day it's constantly on my mind. You outcome has given me hope as I have been terrified to apply for any jobs. As you say, really is the lowest point of your life! Thank you for the updste.
