    • Did you send the note giving them the extension of time? When does the extension expire/date for issue of claim? I see that this thread started on 25 October. I have to say that when it started I thought it was going to be a quick fix and hadn't bargained for virgin's ineptitude which has certainly made it a lot more interesting but I'm hoping that March is going to be the month that it will finally all get sorted out. Surely someone responsible within Virgin has got to start taking a look and understanding the extraordinary mess that they have built for themselves and want to sort it out.  
    • Dispute with Vodafone and get copy invoices last invoice 2016 no balance on old number I have invoices upto nov16 showing no balance brought forward just before upgraded.   you say above you have all the bills that state a zero balance up until nov2016 are they in the SAR return too,? and all the ones after nov 2016?   the account number in the poc is this the same number as on those bills you have? and the number on the pages of the comms log you uploaded? as the comms log appears to show payments were being made right through the period you say the bills you have all show £0? then being transferred to other invoice numbers  , do these invoice numbers the payments were transferred too match the invoice numbers show £0 balance you have?          
    • no go back and read my guide earlier CAREFULLY...
    • Oh ok.   I thought I would need to write some sort of defence when I acknowledge the claim on the mcol website.
    • woe SLOWDOWN>   your defence is weeks away. (day 33) no there are no templates as each claim is unique. however, if you use our search top right. for say claimform card you'll see numerous versions people have adapted based upon our std holding/no paperwork defence , one of which, might well be suitable.   get CCA/CPR requests running monday and get AOS done now on mcol, you've already lost 10 of your 19days to do AOS   then get reading up as i detailed above the more you read here the stronger we become   dx

    • Hi @BankFodder
      Sorry for only updating you now, but after your guidance with submitting the claim it was pretty straight forward and I didn't want to unnecessarily waste your time. Especially with this guide you wrote here, so many thanks for that
      So I issued the claim on day 15 and they requested more time to respond.
      They took until the last day to respond and denied the claim, unsurprisingly saying my contract was with Packlink and not with them.
       
      I opted for mediation, and it played out very similarly to other people's experiences.
       
      In the first call I outlined my case, and I referred to the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 as the reason to why I do in fact have a contract with them. 
       
      In the second call the mediator came back with an offer of the full amount of the phone and postage £146.93, but not the court costs. I said I was not willing to accept this and the mediator came across as a bit irritated that I would not accept this and said I should be flexible. I insisted that the law was on my side and I was willing to take them to court. The mediator went back to Hermes with what I said.
       
      In the third call the mediator said that they would offer the full amount. However, he said that Hermes still thought that I should have taken the case against Packlink instead, and that they would try to recover the court costs themselves from Packlink.
       
      To be fair to them, if Packlink wasn't based in Spain I would've made the claim against them instead. But since they are overseas and the law lets me take action against Hermes directly, it's the best way of trying to recover the money.
       
      So this is a great win. Thank you so much for your help and all of the resources available on this site. It has helped me so much especially as someone who does not know anything about making money claims.
       
      Many thanks, stay safe and have a good Christmas!

How do you mean CD?

 

Pneumonia doesn't last that long these days. My husband was ill for a couple of weeks a while ago and then went back to work once the antibiotics had worked.

A young friend of mine was in ICU for ages with Pneumonia and placed in an induced coma. Relatives told not to expect a recovery at all and although thankfully didnt die as anticipated wasnt 100% for many months. Your husband therefore was very lucky.

I'm sorry to hear about your friend. Maybe CD is right and it depends which type you have. I do know a couple of other people who were treated at home for pneumonia.

Why is Trumps Draft Dodge with Vietnam not being put all over the media??

 

A presidential candidate contracts pneumonia so she is automatically unfit for office, yet a confirmed draft dodger and prospective Colonel in Chief gets off lightly with the media. His presidential nomination is an insult to all those that did not return from Vietnam

Isn't there two types of pneumonia, one being bacterial and the other being viral..

 

There are two main classes of bacterial pneumonia : "typical" and "atypical" (the "typicality" refers to the bacteria's cell wall). Atypical pneumonia bacteria don't have a typical cell wall and need antibiotics that don't act at the cell wall. Which is why penicillins (which act at the cell wall) don't treat atypical pneumonia.

 

Viruses don't usually cause pneumonia, but you can get a viral pneumonitis. Viral chest infections (in particular "flu") can predispose you to a secondary bacterial pneumonia on top of the viral infection.

Not all pneumonia needs hospital.

 

The usual method of assessing severity is "scoring" it using the CURB-65 method

Confusion (yes no)

Urea (a blood test, level above a certain cut off)

Respiration rate (above a cut off?)

Blood pressure (below a certain level)

Age 65 or over?

 

This gives a "score" between 0 (no pneumonia / only mild) and 5 (severe, think ITU!).

The elderly can score high even without pneumonia (a usually confused 66 year old could score 2, even without pneumonia), and a young adult with severe pneumonia could score low (for now!, and be in trouble when they start scoring higher!), but it is one recognised tool in the initial assessment......
