    • 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?

Advantage finance want to VT..

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Hi dx.

 

I have read and tried the upload and it looses me, but I will try again.

 

I never paid the arrears as they would not wait another day. So they removed the right to pay off arrears and terminated the contract.

 

They sent a letter saying.....' you are no longer in possession of the vehicle with our consent' ??

no they threatened too and you fell for it..

 

oh well ..........

 

I would suggest you go for a time to pay order

or if you now don't want to keep the vehicle then follow post two and get a VT running..else it will cost you twice as much if you voluntary surrender it.

 

sorry but I find it a bit naff that after asking for advice you get it then disappear for 6mths

then comeback stating I want help..get it..then again don't follow it through..

Hi DX.

 

I don't understand what you mean when you say... The threatened you and you fell for it.. yes they threatened me and then the carried out the threat I don't know what else I could have done to prevent this but like you say ' oh well' but I know what you mean.

 

When I initially asked for help, it got resolved, then it took a turn, to which I asked for help again, and I was given more help, I acted upon it and ' they'  kept the pressure on me to the situation I have now.

 

I massively appreciate the help and direction I always receive and no doubt will be back here albiet, more assertive and proactive.

 

In the meantime I'm I will look to progress further with the advice I have been given throughout these posts.

 

Thank you so much for your time effort and patience.

you let what was said over the phone change your mind. never converse on the phone.

(vis you said..they removed the right to pay off arrears and terminated the contract. )

you should have paid the arrears off as you planned.

 

Advantage are much like Moneybarn , they make up or interpret rules as they go along.

because most people don't have a clue upon their rights under consumer regulations and the consumer credit act..... by not researching them.

 

so as post my last post now.

 

if you want a secure email to send me the jpg scans of the agreement and statements ask.

Hi DX

I I know what you mean but they were never off the phone to me making threats to report the vehicle stolen and telling me their agent was on his way when he actually wasn't. I tried to pay the arrears but then they took away the opportunity and it is how it is right now.

 

I would like to take you up on your offer of an email address please.

 

Thank you.

Hi all

 

Yesterday an obnoxious agent from advantage called at my home wanting to collect vehicle? 

there was a little confrontation between the agent and my partner he would not give his name and she never thought of videoing  the scenario but he told her that the vehicle had been reported stolen to the police and that they will be coming to 'get me'

 

 I have recently called the police station and give them my details and they said nobody has called them and the vehicle is not reported in any way.

 

I am quite furious at what they have done considering the recent paperwork they sent  me. is this another under  hand tactic of there's?

 

The police woman I spoke to  said I can register a complaint as he was quite abusive towards my partner and made threats of me being arrested etc.

 

my mind is telling me to call Advantage and tell them what I think but I know that is wrong would it be better if I sent an e mail  to them ?

 

Thank you

no you do not respond

just shows you what lies they tell on the phone and at your door that they will never put in writing

this is why its always imperative you never ever converse by doorstepper/email/phone.

 

if a doorstepper/powerless repo guy appears you always film them on your phone and tell them to leave and never return. else a police report to 101 will be done.

no too late now for police..next time..

we'll deal with adv once we have ALL the paperwork please.

 

as long as the vehicle is not left on a public road 

a powerless repo agent has zero powers to take the vehicle.

 

there is no court involvement so stuff and all they can do.
