    • This the original thread here which I can't update https://www.consumeractiongroup.co.uk/topic/372693-my-mother-76-with-pneumonia-treated-appalling-by-gphospitalsent-home-still-ill/page/3/?tab=comments#comment-4850238   To summarise I sent a letter of complaint to the surgery and got a reply back which said   'I have asked dr rachel lee for feedback in regards to the letter and she is unable to recollect the consultation. I am sure you can appreciate a dr can see on average 30 to 40 patients a day and so remembering every consultation is very especially after 2 years.   Copy of consulatation is below with dr rachel lee   (goes to describe the dr notes that day)   From reviewing the above I cannot find fault with the above consultation.   It is unfortunate that your mother was sent to the wrong ward and I apologise for this. I am a little confused as to why when she arrived at the hospital the admisssionss team didn't pick up on this and send her to the correct ward (she was sent to the wrong ward becaue the GP wrote the wrong ward number on the letter and also told us to go to the ward on the letter that she wrote on the envelope, so its the dr's fault for the wrong ward)   Once again I am sorry I am unable to answer all your converns but as mentioned above the time length of time to raise this complaint has made it difficult.     This I find strange because a few months ago my mother had an appoitment with the very same gp and we both waited in reception, over 20 mins passed and I asked the receptinist what is the delay the receptionist told me the dr is busy, so i went back and waited. By this time almost 40 mins had passed and nothing so i went back to the receptonist and asked her she checked the pc and discretely told me 'dr rachel lee has refused to see your mother because she made a complaint against her etc'   And the appointment was then moved to another GP who we explained what just happened and he was shocked.     I want to raise a complaint to the GMC for this dr for the mistakes the gp made in the orgibal thread here https://www.consumeractiongroup.co.uk/topic/372693-my-mother-76-with-pneumonia-treated-appalling-by-gphospitalsent-home-still-ill/page/3/?tab=comments#comment-4850238   Prior to the original thread my mother had seen this gp with crackling cough, difficuly breathing, early signs of pneomonia etc but the gp said 'i am not going to give you any medicine' and sent my mothe home with mo medication. This was the same thing to do, gp failed and this then lead to the visit as in the original thread   I now want to raise a complaint to the GMC on the basis of the earlier justified complaint made against her, Gp's are supposed to be neautral and not take things personal but this gp is being wrong in her actions and I want to raise this and her mistakes in the orginal thread where she said 'go home take paracetamol, there is no pneumonia and only after I objected and insisted the dr use stethoscope to check the lungs and breathing did the GP then tell us it was pneumonia and then she sent us to the wrong hospital ward where we were not seen for over 5 hours and during this time my mothers condition got worse.   A report from Care Quality Commission said the inspection said: “The practice not always provide care in a way that kept patients safe and protected them from avoidable harm. Patients not receive effective care and treatment that met their needs etc'   I need your help to draft a complain letter to the GMC for against this GP Please can you help me thank you          
    • My insurance broker who I had home cover with legal expenses add on has renewed me with a new insurer.   I have a potential legal problem which began during the old policy and was covered by the old policy. However, nothing happened resulting in a strong cause of action to make a claim under the old policy.   The new policy has an exclusion for the peril that was covered by the old policy.   If the dispute leads to a claim now, the new insurance will not cover it.   If I try to get a new policy covering the type of problem I might have, it will exclude things that began before the policy and will not cover new claims for at least 3 months from the start of the policy.   Basically, i've been robbed of my cover.  What can I do to get cover in case the problem turns into a claim?   What are my rights?
    • court claims are nothing to do with accounts appearing or not on your credit file. the original creditor would have registered the account when you took the card out it remains there for 6yrs until/unless you settle it or it gets defaulted. the registration of a CCJ should you lose happens after 28days should you fail to pay any judgement sum and would appear as a CCJ in the public records/judgements section not as a debt account.   100's of hoist ex Barclaycard claimform threads here to read use our search top right or our enhance google search box .

Scenario:

Ex wife left house in July this year.

I remained in marital property (in joint names although I have always paid the mortgage and all bills).

 

 

Divorced in November 15. She had already changed her name back to her pre-married name prior to moving out.

She didn't turn up for Financial Order hearing at court - this has been adjourned until March16.

 

 

I received post addressed to her former married name and as it was from a phone Company I was suspicious and opened it.

 

 

2 letters - one a Bank DD mandate confirmation and the second a Phone Bill for a new phone and two year calling plan

- all made out in her ex name and at an address she doesn't live at.

 

 

Whilst she still may have a legal claim against the house

- I believe this to be fraudulent activity -

 

 

any advice/comments would be welcome before I throw more money at my costly Solicitor.

 

NB. Phone has not been delivered to this address

- so she obviously sorted that one out with them or collected it.

 

 

Also - shes no longer on electoral roll at this address so don't understand how shes managed to do it?

I would write back to the mobile company and state "not at this address" and include her new address if you have it. I would also be sending it to CEO's office and adding in a complaint about how she could obtain credit when not on the electoral roll at your address.

Keep a record of the account numbers and mobile number in case you need to get back in touch with them.

I think at the very least you need to write to her and advise her not to continue taking out credit - contracts, using an address that she no longer lives at, especially if it results in problems for you if you are going to remain in the property.

The DD confirmation isn't fishy. She probably just forgot to tell the bank her new address.

 

The letter regarding a new phone is strange. She may have given the old property as her billing address to get the transaction through, if her debit/credit card is registered to your address.

 

As long as the letters are in her name, so she isn't trying to use your name to get credit, personally I would not worry about it.

What business is it of yours how she obtained it or if it's fraudulent?

 

What would you need to instruct solicitors for?

 

I can imagine it's annoying having a letter come to your house but return to sender marked no longer at this address.

 

The only issue I can see is if she defaults on payments and the phone company get a CCJ and try to enforce you could be inconvenienced having to deal with Enforcement Officers.

It's every business of mine. Using my name and my address to dishonestly obtain credit and a phone. If it's fraudulent then it's illegal. Simple. Then the law can deal with it the way it sees. But thanks anyway for your comments.

I am stunned by this comment.

 

Maybe ganymede could explain how its NOT any of the OP's business given that credit has been granted to somebody not living at that address, ex wife or otherwise.

 

Having gone through exactly the same scenario myself with my ex wife thinking its acceptable to obtain credit whilst no longer living at the marital address and the subsequent 5 years of dealing with the bailliffs and the aftermath of DCA's. let me assure you in no uncertain terms that it is absolutely not a mere inconvenience.

Would it not be prudent to nip this in the bud before it got to this stage Gany ?

The OP could write a cover letter explaining but the problem is if he calls the phone company they are likely going to refuse to speak to him as he isn't the account holder and they will use DPA as an excuse.

 

He could go to the Police, but I doubt they'd be too interested as the ex-wife passed a credit check etc and is still registered on the deeds of the address in question as far as I understand.

 

Best thing to do is to speak to his ex-wife, however I see absolutely no reason for the OP to pay for a solicitor to deal with this.

For the record. The split wasn't at all amicable. So there's no dialogue. And this just isn't on. Deeds is one thing. Fraudulent application is another. I was hoping for something a little more structured if somebody had a legal opinion. Maybe I should never have opened the mail. But I smelled a rat!! And it was proven.

Something we also need to consider is the opening of mail that was intended for someone else.

 

It is against the law to open, destroy, hide or delay any post that is addressed to someone else. This is set out in the Postal Services Act.

Write to the phone company informing then that she doesnt live there and didnt when the account was opened, if you have a forwarding address for her, advise them accordingly.

 

I doubt you will get anywhere going down the fraud route

.

There is little more you can do from a legal point of view while she remains on the deeds, so unless you can buy her out, you are in the same boat i was in.

 

Also be aware that even tho she is not living there, as long as she remains a co owner she can come back and move in anytime she chooses.

 

I know u dont want to hear that but she can if she wanted to.

I second the opinion of others suggesting to contact the phone company and give them her new address (and name).

If they refuse to deal with you, you could write to the CEO and inform them in writing.

At least if she defaults you would have something to show the dca or bailiffs
