    • I came back home on Monday and found this Claim form in my letter box. In the light of what I have explained earlier in regards to this debt claim, can anyone tell if I have any chance fighting it in th Court. SW in the last conversation request the proof of me living somewhere else, which I can't provide. They have info from the landlord of property being rented to me, I was there on electoral register, had bank account opened on this address, Driving licence had this address etc., but I wasn't living there.      Name of the Claimant -  Southern Water services   Date of issue – 12/06/2019     Particulars of Claim   The Claimant is statutory...etc The Claimant claims the sum £969 for unpaid water and or sewerage charges payable under s. 142-144 of the act and the Claimant Charges Scheme. The unpaid sum of £969 is for period 01/04/2014 - 08/07/2015. The claimant claims interest under section 69 of the County Courts Act 1984 at the rate of 8% a year  from 08/07/2015 to 11/06/2019 and also interest at the same rate up to the date of the judgment or earlier payment at daily rate of £0.21   What is the total value of the claim? £1423   Have you received prior notice of a claim being issued pursuant to paragraph 3 of the PAPDC ( Pre Action Protocol) ? yes Letter before Action   Have you changed your address since the time at which the debt referred to in the claim was allegedly incurred?  Yes, COA address.   Did you inform the claimant of your change of address? No Is the claim for - a Bank Account (Overdraft) or credit card or loan or catalogue or mobile phone account?    No, water charges   When did you enter into the original agreement before or after April 2007 ? Allegedly after - April 2012   Do you recall how you entered into the agreement...On line /In branch/By post ? No   Is the debt showing on your credit reference files (Experian/ Equifax /Etc...) ? No, no anymore   Has the claim been issued by the original creditor or was the account assigned and it is the Debt purchaser who has issued the claim. Southern Water - original creditor   Were you aware the account had been assigned – did you receive a Notice of Assignment?   Did you receive a Default Notice from the original creditor? No.   Have you been receiving statutory notices headed “Notice of Default sums” – at least once a year ? No   Why did you cease payments? Never. I wasn't aware of bills.   What was the date of your last payment? Never   Was there a dispute with the original creditor that remains unresolved? Yes, creditor did not take my notice of bills being wrongly issued in my name.   Did you communicate any financial problems to the original creditor and make any attempt to enter into a debt management plan? No  
    • If the case was brought before a UK civil court would UK rules apply or foreign rules?   I wonder if the original contract would strate what jurisdiction it's terms would be decided by?   I note that UK contracts frequently have a clause that says in so many words that any disputes  will be interpreted under UK law.
    • http://www.hadefpartners.com/News/333/Limitation-periods-in-the-United-Arab-Emirates   One of the key limitation periods to be aware of is the limitation period for a claim for breach of contract. We have been approached by many clients (including in-house counsel at large multinational and local companies, and even international law firms) who believe that the limitation period for a breach of contract (including a commercial contract) in the UAE is 15 years. What they are often not aware of is that the limitation period for commercial contracts (as set out in Federal Law 18 of 1993 (the “Commercial Code”)) is usually 10 years. Therefore, multi-million dollar claims dating back over more than 10 years may now be time-barred.   https://www.jstor.org/stable/3381662?seq=1#page_scan_tab_contents
    • how long did you sign up for ? if they claimed DD after that period …….

    • This is a bit of a lengthy one but I’ll summerise best as possible.
       
      THIS IS HOW THE PHONECALL WENT 
       
      I was contacted by future comms by phone, they stated that they could beat any phone contract I have , (I am a limited company but just myself that needs a business phone and I am the only worker) 
      I told future comms my deal, £110 per month with a phone and a virtual landline, they confirmed that they could beat that, £90 per month with a phone , virtual landline  they also confirmed they would pay Vodafone (previous provider) the termination fee. As I am in business, naturally I was open to making a deal. So we proceeded. 
      Future comms then revealed that the contract would be with PLAN.COM and the airtime would be provided by 02, I instantly told them that this would break the deal as I have poor 02 signal in the house where I live as my partner is on 02 and constantly complaining about bad signal
      the salesman assured me he would send a signal booster box out with the phone so I would have perfect signal.
      so far so good.....
      i then explained this is the only mobile phone I use for business and pleasure, so therefore I didn’t want any disconnection time in the slightest between the switchover from Vodafone to 02
      the salesman then confirmed that the existing phone would only be disconnected once the new phone was switched on.
      so far so good....

GDPR SAR Medical Records to GP - failed twice - help

Recommended Posts

Is the new GDPR SAR template suitable for a medical records request from a GP without any specific alterations?

 

Thanks.

I put a request in (handed in at doctors so no proof of post) about 7/8 weeks ago now and have heard absolutely nothing back, not even a letter to say it would take longer than the required time frame. Any advice on how to proceed please?

 

Thanks.

Again after posting this in via recorded mail i have heard nothing back. The original letter was handed in around August and then posted in on the 8th November.

 

Is this normal? Has it happened to anyone else?

 

I dont know whether i should ring the surgery to complain, the NHS or even their watchdog?

 

Thanks for reading.

ICO say you should send a formal complaint to the GP about them not responding to the SAR and if that too is ignored refer it to the ICO.

 

https://ico.org.uk/your-data-matters/raising-concerns/

 

 

I'm not sure whether there would be any benefit in copying that to anyone else in the NHS. GPs are independent contractors, not NHS employees, so it's really only the GP you can pursue for the information they hold.

I suggest that you start off by reading this post https://www.consumeractiongroup.co.uk/forum/showthread.php?492106-Npower-2-year-nightmare-Please-help&p=5170199&viewfull=1#post5170199 which I put up about the failure of GDPR and what you can expect from the ICO

Thank you for the replies.

 

Im going to start off with the formal complaint to the surgery.

 

Is there any reason why i should not email this in rather than submit a letter? Im thinking emails leave a better trail then letters.

Would you mind telling us why you are asking for the data.

Sure its on behalf of a family member who suffers from several medical problems and has a ridiculously frequent amount of problems with the NHS not doing things they should be doing.

Okay. For whatever reason you seem to be constrained by fairly unsocial hours. This means that it is rather difficult to help you with your problem.

 

However, I would suggest that a fairly effective way forward would be to identify the data controller, make sure that you have sent your SAR to that data controller and if everything has been done correctly, then to threaten to bring an action for breach of statutory duty. I'm not sure how it works in the NHS. If the data controller is the GP practice that you are dealing with then I would have thought they would be anxious to avoid a judgement for breach of statutory duty because they will be obliged to report it to the GMC. This would cause them huge problems.

 

So, can you confirm the validity of your SAR and of the data controller you sent it to and let us know who that is.

Sorry if its a stupid question but how do you mean?

 

I copied the new SAR request from these forums and edited slightly (copy attached) for my needs, got them signed and then they were handed in and later posted to the surgery.

 

Thank you for the help by the way.

When you are contemplating this kind of action it is best to be very prepared and to doublecheck at every step. You don't want to be in a position where you issue proceedings and then suddenly find that there is a viable defence on the basis of some technicality.

 

Who is the data controller? Have you discovered this? I don't know how NHS records are controlled under the data protection regime. Is the data controller within the practice or is it some more generalised NHS data controller.

 

You need to check this and be absolutely certain. I suppose it might even be possible that you haven't sent your SAR to the correct person – in which case the SAR would not be valid.

 

I'm recommending this caution for your sake because it will be you who will suffer the humiliation of a defeat and also the loss of a claim fee – however little that might be. Much better to make sure that all your ducks are in a row and then you can go in heavy.

A quick thought on this one - you say that the request is on behalf of a family member. My initial thinking would be around whether or not you’re entitled to that information, whether or not the practice has received separate instruction from the data subject and whether or not you have the data subject’s consent to access their data in a form that is easily agreed upon and demonstrated to the data controller. It’s very unusual for no response to be made at all but I have dealt with requests where the patient has expressly told us not to provide any information about their care to family members. Another added complication can be in instances of family break ups where vexatious requests are made to try to gather information to undermine the other party.

Sorry for leaving this so long...

 

I had a good search the other day because i was sure i had used this site to identify who i should have sent the SAR to in the first place but couldn't find anything here or elsewhere. Im certain i was helped somewhere with this bit and that the Doctors Surgery was the place to contact because i wanted copies of everything.

 

I think at this point i would like to just contact the doctors surgery anyway as im sure any answer to a complaint will be putting me in the right direction.

 

With regards to permission the SAR i wrote up was addressed from and signed by the relevant family member.
