    • 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?

Hello good people of the CAG. I have just arrived home from Uni and found 7 letters from a company called Debt Recovery Plus Ltd, each letter demanding £150 for unpaid parking charges. These charges span a period between 16/10/15 - 06/11/15.

 

I called the company to dispute the charges as the ticket machine has been out of order (It is still not working!) and the lady at the car park who checks to see if people have payed and displayed told me to place a note in my windscreen stating that the machine is out of order and I'll not get a fine. DRP told me on the phone that I cannot appeal as I'm am out of the appeal period.

 

I didn't receive any letters from the company that issued the original charges (LDK Security Group Ltd) so this is the first I know about them.

 

Was the guy from DRP correct in informing me that I cannot appeal? Any advice would be very much appreciated.

 

Thanks, Paul.

 

Update: I have just visited LDK Security group website in search for proof of parking violation and apparently there should have been a note stuck to my car with a reference number on it. This has not been the case.

STAY OFF THE PHONE.

Never phone a PPC or debt collector.

 

You need to find out from the DVLA who they sold your details to, how many times and on what dates.

first of all, DR+ have nothing to do with anything at all ever so dont dother with them at all whatever they say or threaten.

You will have noticed thet the £150 they ask for does not correlate with the alleged breach of contract or contractual obligation charge and they have added somewhere between £50-100 for themselves. Ask yourself why this is? Now you can see that they have been dishonest from the start you can hopefully realise the true power they have-none.

So, did your receive 7 tickets attached to your car regarding the alleged parking breaches? Did you then receive 7 Notices To Keeper through the post between 29-56 days after each event? No? then the parking co has not adhered to the protocols of the POFA and cant claim from you. If you received all 7 tickets and separate letters then you need to contact the DVLA and see who has accessed your keeper details, when and why. Again, if they havent asked the DVLA 7 times they are in breach of the protocols and you can never owe them a penny.

Once you start to realise that there is a lot that you can do to battle this then the easier it becomes to actually go about fighting the charges.

Tell us what you have received and when and we can start to see what has gone on.

Thanks for the brilliant responses guys. I have sent off an email to the DVLA requesting that info and will update you when I get a response from them. I have only just realised that the PNC notices where issued on a car I no longer own, am I correct in thinking that wont change anything?

 

Clarification: I did own that car at the time the PNC notices where allegedly issued.

You were the keeper at the time of the alleged events so they are chasing the right person, just dont appear to be obeying the law when doing so and that means you wont owe a penny.
