    • 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?

12 year old getting aggressively spoken to by Tesco security guard

Recommended Posts

My son was waiting for me outside Tesco and was approached by a store security guard

he was told to get off the property

he explained he was waiting for me as of the social distancing rules

the security guard told him that he didn't care what he was doing there and if he didn't go he would make him leave and left him and went back in the store

 

as I was leaving the store the same security guard pushed past me heading towards my son aggressively

as he got to my son I explained that he was with me and was waiting for me

the security guard squared up to me, no care for social distancing and said that he didn't care he was waiting for me and that he has told him to get off his property

 

at this point I said that I wanted to speak to the stores manager

customer service called him and told me he was coming to talk to me

 

at that point the security guard ran to a door at the other side of the store and caught hold of the manager before I did and told the manager that my son is part of a gang that cause trouble outside the store

 

I explained that he is not one of them as I have witnessed said gang giving the staff of the store a hard time

the manager said that the security guard was not a direct employee of Tesco and gave me a company name

 

I have contacted the company and they denied that he was one of their security guard's

told me to get his name and number

 

I explained that he would not let me have these details saying that he does not have to tell me information about himself

the company told me that this is a breach of his license that he would not let me have his license number

 

I'm thinking of videoing him to get his number but don't know how to go about it as he was very aggressive towards me

is there anyone that could help

 

I have been to jail for different things in my youth and this is testing my thinking skills to the limit

please if you can help I truly need it

I'm terribly sorry but you have posted a large solid block of text and that is very difficult to read on a forum.

Please would you repost your story – but spaced and punctuated so that people can read it more easily. You will then find that you will get a very enthusiastic response.

Thanks

It's Tesco you need to complain to. They are responsible for the behaviour of the security guards in their stores. It's irrelevant that Tesco employ their security guards through a security company and aren't their direct employer. The security company is under contract to Tesco and the security guards work under the control and direction of Tesco so Tesco are responsible for what they do.

 

The local store manger should not have told you to contact the security company. He was just fobbing you off. Of course the store manager knows the identity of the security guard who is sitting at the security desk in the store. Is it likely that when a security guard turns up for work at the store for the first time Tesco just let him start work without knowing who he is or requiring proof of ID from him?

 

Make a complaint to Tesco Head Office  both about the behaviour of the security guard and about the store manager telling you it was nothing to do with him.

Just so your aware. His SIA licence should have been on display for everyone to see. This is a requirement of the SIA and by not doing such he is breaching the licensing guideline. Check the SIA website for these. The only details he has to give you is what is on his badge and he should have produced this when asked.

 

If you do decide to continue to try and get his name and badge number you are also entitled to report him to the SIA as well. Which not many people know. 

 

Hope this helps as I work in the security industry

A written complaint to Tesco head office is your best bet.

give them the dates and times and a description of the person so they can identify him. let tehm know what you want as a resolution to this.

shame I have just returned my voting form for their AGM or I could have made the chairman answer this complaint at the AGM, which would be minuted

Who said you need a lawyer or the police to get an SAR please? We tell people to send them all the time and it won't cost you anything.

Was told by Tesco they will not release the CCTV to me saying that they only release it to police or a solicitor they would not give it to me so they have lied to me again I will be stating this in my letter it seems that they have made many mistakes in this all I want is an apology not compensation getting annoyed more now with the way I'm being dealt with than the incident it self
