    • 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?

Hi All,

 

I'm just about to send the first letter, although a little unsure. I have absolutely no experience dealing with things like this.

 

Heres my spreadsheet which i will attach with my letter.

Google Docs & Spreadsheets - rbs-final

 

My letter is as template except

 

"I calculate that you have taken £XXXXX plus £XXX which you have charged me in overdraft interest for the sum which you have taken. Total £XXXXX"

 

has been changed to:

 

"I calculate that you have taken a total of £467.74."

 

Since I don't truly understand the overdraft interest.

 

 

Any feedback is greatly appreciated.

James.

James, I've had a quick look. Couple of questions:

 

did you only start getting charges in 2006 - what about the 5 years previously?

 

The listings against the account number - are these set out as charges on your statements?

 

I take it you have been trying to pay of a loan from your current account and insufficient funds have put you over your overdraft limit? If that's the case, are you being defaulted on your loan as well?

 

Have you considered charging contractual interest - won't be much on charges from 2006, but might be worth a bit?

 

Once I understand a bit better I will comment on your s/sheet.

Hi SweetRevenge,

Thanks for your help.

 

did you only start getting charges in 2006 - what about the 5 years previously?
I have only been with this bank for 6 months, previously my account was held with another bank of which i am awaiting to receive statements.
The listings against the account number - are these set out as charges on your statements?
Yes, on my internet banking statement they appear exactly as:

 

CHG UNPAID ITEM(S) , D/D 89.95, RBS PERSONAL LOAN

CHG 10AUG A/C 10103599

CHG UNPAID ITEM(S) , D/D 41.97, ORANGE

CHG UNPAID ITEM(S) , D/D 89.95, RBS PERSONAL LOAN

CHG UNPAID ITEM(S) , D/D 41.97, ORANGE

CHG 10OCT A/C 10103599

CHG UNPAID ITEM(S) , D/D 89.95, RBS PERSONAL LOAN

CHG 10NOV A/C 10103599

CHG CARD MISUSE , POS 9.49, POS 3.00

CHG REFERRAL CHARGE , FOR NOVEMBER

CHG 08DEC A/C 10103599

CHG GTEE CARD PYMT FEE, POS 43.40

 

I take it you have been trying to pay of a loan from your current account and insufficient funds have put you over your overdraft limit? If that's the case, are you being defaulted on your loan as well?
Yes i'm paying off a loan, perhaps on a couple of occasions the charge put my balance over the arranged overdraft limit. However I felt no need to complicate matters over claiming the small amounts of overdraft charges. I have no idea if my loan has been defaulted.

 

Have you considered charging contractual interest - won't be much on charges from 2006, but might be worth a bit?
I really don't know the meaning of "contractual interest"

 

Thanks again for your invaluable help in these matters :), i'm completely lost.

Ok, so far so good.

 

Is this a Royalties or other account where you pay a monthly 'fee' for the service? If it is simply a current account with or with interest, that's fine, if not you need to be certain that the Royalties fee isn't included in one of the 'monthly' charges shown above.

 

I think if you had defaulted on your loan you would know about it. What I was trying to find out was 'are you being charged for not having made a payment on your loan account', as well as being charged in your current account for having insufficient funds?

 

Either way, if you want to keep it simple, fine. My only concern would be about separating out any 'fee' for the account from the charges. For example I only had an interest paying current account and my charges were £28 - which made me think you might be paying your royalties fee rolled into the £38 'charge'.

 

Let me know? :)

I'm slightly concerned as i beleive it may well be a "Royalties" account.

Are you saying that the actual bounced direct debit charges may include a "royalties" fee?

I am also a bit concerned - please have a look at the threads about RBOS charges and sorting out what is a charge and what is a fee for more information and how RBOS present this on statements - I think others have found they roll the two into one charge as well. I'll have a look and see if I can find the threads which are relevant for you. Someone with more experience of this may also be able to help.

 

I hate having to say that you may not be able to claim as much as you thought, but I wouldn't have done you any service to not mention it if the RBOS had then decided to defend on the basis that your claim is wrong.

 

Keep your chin up - we may still be able to bump it up with contractual interest, if you feel that way inclined.

Thanks for your help SweetRevenge.

 

Had a look around, couldn't find anything to do with Royalties accounts.

I'm completely lost now.

James, have a look at the top right hand corner of your statements. It says what account you have there. If it says "Interest paying current account" or very similar, then it isn't a Royalties account. If however, it says "Royalties Account, Royalties Gold Account, Royalties Premier Account" then it's what it says it is!

 

If you need help identifying / splitting charges, read my post all about it here.
