    • 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?

Hi, I hope I can be pointed in the right direction.

I have had several loans from QQ dating from 2010-2012

a total of 19 loans according to their information adding up to £14,600 without adding interest.

The last loan of £1100 is showing as defaulted in August 2012 , apparently was funded on the 24th August 2012, I have checked through all my previous bank statements and this payment is not showing.

I hope someone can help as to who I email and what should I say?

Thank you

Hi,

 

Firstly, read through the other threads relating to QQ on here to get a feel of how things might work. Then you need to pull all your information together, get a copy of your credit report and tailor a complaint letter or email to QQ themselves. Send any email to complaint@quickquid.co.uk This complaint should be in your own words, not using a template, and say why you believe that QQ lent money to you irresponsibly. Was there a constant pattern of loans, were many of these rolled over? Quick quid will have all these as new loans on their web page but many are rollovers. Did they increase your limit to a point you couldn't afford, despite doing no checks?

 

Once you send in your complaint, sit back and wait. They have 8 weeks to come back to you before you can go to the FOS. I can pretty much guarantee that they will offer nothing or a token gesture, as I've not seen anyone get any response from QQ or P2P which are part of the same business. Once the 8 weeks is up, or they send you a final response (whichever comes first) you can send your complaint to the FOS. During this time I would use it to collate bank statements and details on other commitments, copy letters and emails of correspondence and generally have everything an adjudicator might require should our complaint go to the FOS. Did you have any other PDL at the same time, late payment markers, CCJ's or a low income and high outgoing that a payday lender should have seen if they had done proper checks?

19 loans !!!!

 

A definite irresponsible lending case IMO, bet these were all rolled over to pay off the previous loan, daylight robbery, should be outlawed.


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!

Thank you,

There was a constant pattern of rollovers that started with £400 and ended increasing to £1200. I have checked my account on the QQ website & according to them I have had 19 loans.

The Total £14,600.

Could someone advise as to adding interest to this and if so how much?

Thank you

On the agreement you signed?

On statements they sent?

If you are looking on-line then click on the loan ID in blue. This then shows a quick snap shot of the loan itself. Loan Amount is the amount borrowed and Loan Fee is the interest. If you had any loyalty discounts they show under Discount Amount and come off the loan fee to give you the amount you paid as interest

 

e.g. Loan Amount £1300 Loan Fee £260 Discount Amount £52 Total repaid £1508

 

Also note that if you changed to a flexi account with QQ, this information is not stored on their website, just pay day loans. My loan info stopped at the end of 2012, but I still borrowed from QQ up the end of 2014 and was paying my flexi loan into 2015

Thank you, I will check all that out.

I didn't change to a flexi loan.

Also is there any sort of template that I can follow as I don't want to muck this up?

AFAIK, there is no set template, each case is individual, type up your complaint then post it on here for others to look at and advise you.
