    • 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,

 

I have started a claim for around £1200 from Nat West. I have already added up my charges, sent the prelimanary letter, received a reply from Stuart and then sent on my LBA by Special Delivery (thanks to the post girls at work) which apparently arrived at the head office on the 19th December. It was 14 days yesterday since the letter arrived but I have decided to give them until Monday / Tuesday because of all the bank holidays that occured between then and now. Is this wise?

 

I have also seen a user be successful by righting a chase up letter after the LBA explaining that it will be better to settle before going to court. Anyone else had any luck with this?

 

Thanks for the help and great website!! :D

 

Regards

Hi

 

Personally I would stick to the timescale's set - Regardless...

I wouldnt send a chase up letter either.

Go straight to file your claim.

Agree with emma, they didn't dilly dally when applying charges to your account so why give them any time? File your claim and get your money plus interest.

As already stated, why try and push them into settling early, you've already given them plenty of opportunity to settle and they havn't. Nat West are a hard bunch to crack but you will get there in the end. Proceeding to the timescales means you'll be entitled to the 8% interest under section 69.

NatWest's strategy indicates there is no incentive for them to settle early. There are a sufficient number of claimants who do not pursue the claim to the conclusion, therefore from a purely financial point of view the present tactics are effective. Maybe not ethical, or moral, but effective.


My advice has hardly any legal foundation whatsoever, however you never know it it might just work!

:cool:

Good news for everyone!!!! :D I have had an offer of full and final settlement before even needing to go to court. £1,149.50!!

 

It was 14 days yesterday since Nat West received my LBA letter by Special delivery. I reworded the LBA letter slightly to say that I would like to resolve this issue before the need to go to court, that I would persue it all the way, etc so of course I would reccomend this course of action to others who have not got as far as the LBA.

 

Thankfully today I held back from going online to fill out the court claim because I had still not heard from natwest and had a inkling that I would hear from them with good or bad news, because of a delay in the post. The letter was dated 29th Dec. The letter says I have to write back and sign a statement to say I accept within a month. Of course they do not accept liability, etc.

 

Thanks for a great website and all the help. I will make a donation when I receive the money. Please put this in settled forum!!!
