    • 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?

It seems in each case, the bank use the 30 day settlement option to delay things, would it be worthwhile using this list to request the judge not to allow the 30 days?


Read, Read and Read some more.

 

The answers are all out there...

 

By the way, it's your claim. I only offer an opinion as another reader. :confused:

You mean when the judge orders a stay pending settlement?

The spreadsheet's designed to go along with the application to remove a stay, as detailed in this post:

http://www.consumeractiongroup.co.uk/forum/bank-templates-library/17065-application-removal-stay.html

 

(thinking on, I'll add a link into the first post here....:) )

 

Thanks for the kind comments btw folks, didn't want you thinking I was being ignorant :D

Mcuth, just a thought but it would be really helpful to myself to add an extra column to say what type of interest th case has been settled with.

 

ie Statuary, Authorised O/Draft Contractual, UnAuthorised Contractual.

 

Just a thought what do you think ?

I'm afraid that'd be impossible to state unless people started reporting it in their litigation posts, sorry. Besides, previous claims being settled outside court with Contractual Interest (authorised or unauthorised) wouldn't have any impact on future claims being settled on the same basis.

Could this not be used to sway the judge to strike out the defence, as, all the cases have had a defence submitted but all settled before a hearing.

 

I was thinking along ther lines of the Lincoln judge where he said they were abusing the court system

I was thinking along the same lines, if people start stating if they won with Contractual Interest, it may help others that are going for contractual interest.

Absolutely you can use this list of claims for something like that - abuse of process, where it's clear that the banks are using the court system as a "delaying tactic", etc... and showing that they've settled X cases without intending to step into a courtroom to defend them :)

 

I was thinking along the same lines, if people start stating if they won with Contractual Interest, it may help others that are going for contractual interest.

 

The only way I could see it helping is from a morale point of view to other CAG members.

As far as the courts are concerned, when a case is settled out of court, it's just that - a settled case - and the court isn't concerned about the arguments used within the case. Now, if there was a case actually heard and won, then there would be a reason to bring the detail of that case before the court.

 

Cheers

Perhaps i am being thick but i can't open the files. I take it that xls is an excel document(i don't have excel) but lit.settled is a word document but it opens with a load of strange characters and no word format.

Yes, the xls file is an Excel document - if you don't have Excel (or a version of OpenOffice that can read Excel2002 files), then you won't be able to view it unless you have Microsoft's Excel Viewer installed.

 

As for the .doc file, it is not an actual Word document - it's just the Excel file renamed. As I wrote in the first post:

 

"lit settled.doc - the spreadsheet renamed - if you haven't got any "zip" software, just save this to disk and rename it to lit settled.xls

 

The forum software doesn't allow me to upload an Excel file (or at least, a filename with a .xls extension), so I simply changed the extension to .doc so it could be uploaded. This way, those that might not have any unzipping software to extract the spreadsheet from the zip file, can just save the file to disk and rename it. I'll make this a little clearer in the first post of this thread.

 

HTH

This is an Excel spreadsheet of all settled charge-related claims as posted in the Litigation Concluded forum, with the exception of posts that didn't have a case number. It contains an "autofilter" which can be used to show cases for one particular Defendant. One suggested use for the spreadsheet is to accompany an application to have a stay removed (as detailed here).

 

If you don't have Excel (or a version of OpenOffice that can read Excel2002 files), then you won't be able to view it unless you have Microsoft's Excel Viewer installed.

 

There is 1 attachment to this post - lit settled.xls

 

Updated 18th April - spreadsheet now available in Excel format - number of claims is now 591 - total value in excess of £1m!

 

Cheers

 

Michael

 

 

Just a point about the settled claims - would it be to our advantange to put in some other dates eg date settlement offered, date paid etc

 

might be able to work a pattern and the judges would clearly see that even if they enter a defense there is a timescale /

Hmm, not sure about just how helpful that would be since the courts only have to look up the case number on their computer, and we're simply providing an indication of how many cases that the bank has settled.

 

Remember that the spreadsheet is simply data taken from the Litigation Concluded forum, and it's hard enough getting people to a) report the date that the case was issued, and b) PM a mod with their case details for inclusion in the first place! (I believe that the number of cases from the Litigation Concluded forum is only a fraction of the total number that actually get issued) :)

Would it be possible to use this spreadsheet to apply for costs as the bank are behaving "unreasonably" by forcing the litigant to waste a lot of time and outlay more of their hard earned cash to persue the return of the litigants own money unlawfully taken in the first instance???? Possibly show the court that the banks are meerly abusing the court service in order ro "scare" people off claiming. I'm sure, as you's are also aware, there will be many who only have a few charges and simply don't justify the time and expense to recover them, considering the fact that applying for costs is generally speaking a no-no.

Indeed, you could use it in support of a request for costs - you're probably better off looking at this thread though, I know it's Lloyds, but it's a claim for costs based on the bank's unreasonable behaviour :)

Hi

 

Sorry for not updating you earlier.

The date range of the spreadsheet covered all the posts in the "litigation concluded" forum (as was) from the start of that forum. However, that forum has now been superceded by this page, where you can get all the details of concluded cases.

 

I'll update the first post on this thread with a link to the new page, and then close the thread, as the spreadsheet is now redundant.

 

Cheers

Michael
