    • Hello,    After a year and a half I have had my LBC and I am preparing the letter the forum has  advised people to send. I will post it here later today. vcs lbc.pdf
    • I had Friday 29th in my mind so that I would get it  and not miss the Monday deadline. Is that the best course of action? Any thoughts from the forum on my plan of 'prove I'm the driver' idea? Is this silly or worth doing? 
    • Indeed. I was just thinking 'Here we go again'. NHS trusts are saying they have problems and want to move to Plan B, Indie Sage scientists are saying things need to change. But HMG isn't listening and says everything's fine.    Meanwhile Chris Whitty has at least stressed the importance of masks, ventilation and so on.

Private assessment shows serious swallow problem, recommends SALTS team urgent see my brother   15 Oct 2021 Brother coughs up phelhm with blood 1 time in day, reported to GP and request home visit   16 Oct 2021 GP home visit, checks chest, says clear and nothing to worry about - on video GP says brother has blood clot in lungs, go AE and wait, tell GP brother too frail weak, weight 5stone, unable to wait in AE. Request GP make arrangement for xray, bloods, ecg at hospital so brother no need to wait in AE. GP says NO, you have to wait AE. GP will arrange ambulance to go to AE where you WILL HAVE TO WAIT even if it means waiting 6-7hours. Inform GP this is impossible. GP leaves. Calls back in 20mins says NO BEDS available, you just have to wait in AE if it means waiting 7 hours then just wait. Explain the difficulty dementia, too frail, high risk of catching bug and request GP arrange time for brother to go into hospital for bloods, xray, ecg etc, GP says no. Then turns the conversation around telling me 'so your refusing to take your brother to hpstal, if he dies its your fault, i will put that down on his records'. GP hangs the phone.   10 mins later brother collapses, ambulance called, oxygen given, stats up. Taken into hosital, where immedialtely the staff tell me your brother is emacitated dehyradted way too much, all skin and bones. Tell staff, swallow problems, weight loss, complaints to Gp, Gp not listening etc. Brother kept in overnight put onto IV fluids. Discharged the next day   few days later, brother health deteroriates, paramedics to the home, say its pneomonia, i tell them its aspiration pneonua, they agree, explain the swallow problems, weight loss. They say you need to complain to GP.   Oxygen provided, stats go up, paramedics leave 2hrs later stats drop ambulance called, oxygen given 1hhr stats go up, ambulance staff they cant leave oxygen again because 2nd time called to house. They call GP to house with injections inc morphone, which thankfully were never used. Brother passes way at home   My brother died weight was under 5stone, he was skeletone and bones, weight loss problems, swallowing problems complaints made over 2 years and nothing was done until the last couple of weeks only after I went to private consultant for diagnosis, who sent his report the ignorant gps, the same for the private speech therapist report to gp   Gp only refer to dietiacian when brother weight down under 6 stone!! In 2 years no demential assessment done, only done last 2 weeks of brothers life after I complained to GP   This is what I can remember, they will be things I have forgot to add. I am devastated.

We used the car park at Broomfield hospital today. When my husband went to pay, the meter was being emptied. The chap said he would take the details and he keyed them into his phone then said OK that is your ticket for the day.

 

When we returned to the car a fine had been issued.

We couldn't find any one to discuss this with.

 

The fine was issued by Gemini parking solutions 

 Please can you offer any advice. Thank you

I've moved your thread to the Private Land Parking Enforcement forum.

 

BTW, it's not a fine, it's an invoice from a private company.

We could do with some help from you.

What happens then please as it is obviously after the 14 day period for payment at the lower rate. Also do you recommend that we contact the company direct to tell them what their staff are doing. Thank you. Your help is appreciated.

You've seen that this company are complete con artists.  There's no point in writing to them or appealing.  In fact you'd probably make things worse.

 

What could be a lot more effective would be to write to the hospital.  Explain what happened and demand they tell the fleecers to cancel.

We could do with some help from you.

Thank you. I am still unsure what happens after we receive N T K. This is a scary situation.

You can read other threads to see what people do after a NTK appears, we've seen it loads of times. It's not scary, we know what to do. They're not the police.

 

But as FTMDave says, the best thing is to write to the hospital and get them to tell the people they've put in to monitor parking to cancel this ticket.

Thanks that is reassuring. Do you have any idea who I should address a letter to at the hospital. I have emailed the PALs but not had any response yet. Not sure if they are the correct people to deal with. Thank you for your help.

I can't post links from my phone but do a search on CAG for other threads about this hospital. Type the name into the search box at the top of this page, in the red strip. 

 

At least one person got the charge cancelled.

  • 2 weeks later...

Thanks to your advice I contacted the hospital and the notice has been cancelled. They claimed the message was sent to place us on the exemption list but due to signal issues it was not added resulting in the ticket. 

It has been confirmed as cancelled. Thanks again.

Brilliant, well done. :)  I'll alter your thread title to show your success.

 

Could you tell us a bit more about which department you contacted please? This could really help someone else with the same problem.

Well done on your victory!  👏

 

Yes, please post the e-mail address, as HB says it could help someone else in the future.

 

Keep proof of the charge being cancelled, just in case Gemini "forget" to rip it up.

We could do with some help from you.
