    • Serco are not up to the job, but director's of Serco are buddies with Ministers handing out contracts like confetti on the back of Covid.  Track & Trace and Isolate should be a LA competence, not private firms on the make.   Interesting blog today, the genesis of the crisis started with Blair in 2005, subsequent administrations did nothing to improve responses to pandemic.   https://www.turbulenttimes.co.uk/news/corona/scared-to-death/    
    • Independent Sage met yesterday and has a new report out.   They think the national test and trace system doesn't work and are urging the government not to renew Serco's contract. They say the job should be done by GPs and local public health people who are already deal with the more complex cases and care homes.   https://www.independentsage.org/an-independent-sage-discussion-document-on-contact-tracing-and-self-isolation/
    • Thanks for your reply.   I don't have the money to get the repairs or inspections done to be honest.    It's a BMW 1 series.   I've learnt my lesson. I was having a pretty hard time with my health to be honest at the time. I bought it as a present to myself but was too trusting. 
    • This is a tricky one, BMW's , wide wheels, low profile tyres, stiff suspension over deviations, German Cars are known for that.  It might have winter tyres on, that would cause a rumble. My Volvo is also very weird like that.  It could also be a wheel bearing, which isn't expensive but would need to be done. Why not take it to your mechanic for a an inspection, or the AA/ RAC also do that.  I've learnt the hard way that's what you need to do before you buy the car,    What BMW is it?  I would only buy this brand of car at that age if it had a full history of every service and everything that has been spent on it during it's lifetime.
    • If you get somebody to cover for you on those last three days, are you saying you are OK?  ie you don't need to go to work in your old job and you can start the new one?  So that gives you what you want - yes?   If you can't get somebody to cover for you, you've got two potential courses of action - which may or may not be mutually exclusive.  First, ask if you can move your termination date forward by three days.  Obviously you won't get paid for those three days and whether your current trust will agree to this depends on what sort of relationship you have with your manager and how much they will need you to work those three days - or how easy you will be to replace.  If they say OK - you win.   Second, you don't turn up for work on those three days.  You will then technically be in breach of contract and in theory the trust could sue you for any financial loss they suffer as a result.  This would be the cost of employing somebody to replace you for those three days.  Will they need to replace you?  I suspect they would not bother to sue you, but nobody can guarantee they won't.  And what if you want a reference from them in future?  If you've already asked to bring your leave date forward, and they've refused, they may rightly conclude that you are taking the pi$$ if you don't turn up on those days, and they won't like it - or rather they won't like you...   Or, as I said before, get your new start date put back three days.   The thing is, your current employer can't extend your notice period unless you agree.  If they won't allow you to take leave owing to you during that notice period, they should pay you for it.  Whether you should write to them as I suggested earlier is more complicated because the situation is much less clear cut than you originally outlined.  (You had implied that they had already refused your request to take leave owing to you during your notice period and that you would have to extend your notice period to allow you to take that leave.  That isn't quite the position, is it?  And they haven't actually said they won't pay you for any leave you don't take, have they?)   Two other things: first, are you changing employer within the NHS?  If you are, it's a possibility that questions may be asked if you are in the pension scheme and you have two periods of full-time employment that overlap.   Second, your manager's email refers to "your last working day".  This is a little ambiguous and can cause a lot of confusion in the NHS.  You may wish to check whether they mean it is the last day of your employment (ie including any leave you are taking) or is it the last day you are actually present working.  Do you see the difference?  Managers often get hopelessly confused by this without HR guidance.  (And HR often get it wrong).   It's a pity you can't or won't seek union guidance if you are a member - that's what you pay for.

    • Hi,  
      I was in Sainsbury’s today and did scan and shop.
      I arrived in after a busy day at work and immediately got distracted by the clothes.
       
      I put a few things in my trolley and then did a shop.
      I paid and was about to get into my car when the security guard stopped me and asked me to come back in.
       
      I did and they took me upstairs.
      I was mortified and said I forgot to scan the clothes and a conditioner, 5 items.
      I know its unacceptable but I was distracted and Initially hadn’t really planned to use scan and shop.
       
      No excuse.
      I offered to pay for the goods but the manager said it was too late.
      He looked at the CCTV and because I didn’t try to scan the items he was phoning the police.
       
      The cost of the items was about £40.
      I was crying at this point and told them I was a nurse, just coming from work and I could get struck off.
       
      They rang the police anyway and they came and issued me with a community resolution notice, which goes off my record in a year.
      I feel terrible. I have to declare this to my employer and NMC.
       
      They kept me in a room on my own with 4 staff and have banned me from all stores.
      The police said if I didn’t do the community order I would go to court and they would refer me to the PPS.
       
      I’m so stressed,
      can u appeal this or should I just accept it?
       
      Thanks for reading

Hi

 

I sent the Halifax a letter on 12th April (template found on Watchdog site) stating my claim. I have heard nothing. i contacted Halifax yesterday who told me my claim was being looked at and would probably be declined and I would hear by week commencing 28 the May. What is the next stage - I am not prepared to wait until then as I have already waited until 12th April. I have read on this forum that Halifax have got tough - do they actually pay out and what do I do now????? PLEASE HELP

Hi Wifey,

 

Ok, not sure where you are up to and as you have not been with us here it appears, often many sites and advice areas are different.

 

So to basics -

 

1) I assume you have your statements - have calculated all your fees charged etc and they are listed in order of date, amount and type.

 

If not - that is the first bit to be sure of!

 

The steps on this site and format is they conform to what is called the Civil Procedure Rules to make a civil claim, so it is important not to skip a step.

 

Once you have done the first bit and calculated your charges, you would have sent a polite letter asking for the monies back. Like the link below.

 

http://www.consumeractiongroup.co.uk/forum/bank-templates-library/671-2-letter-preliminary-approach.html

 

Then with no response, you would proceed to the step of warning them of court action - like the link below.

 

http://www.consumeractiongroup.co.uk/forum/bank-templates-library/92-3-letter-before-action.html

 

IF - and ONLY if you have completed these stages, are you then able to file in the court system having complied with the CIVIL procedure rules and protocols that take you to now seek Law to gain your justice for the fees returned to you.

 

Post back and let us know - if you missed a step it is ok, but if you have completed all the above, then you can now file however make sure you check the links and ensure the wording is similar, as the other side you are claiming from has to be clear of your intent to proceed and what you are asking for at all stages.

Hi CJ

 

Thanks for the reply. My first letter was asking for the statements which I got. The second letter sent them a schedule of the charges and also telling them that I believed their charges were disproportionately high. It went on stating about penalty charges etc and that their costs did not reflect any actual loss. It also said that if I did not receive a full refund of £4,403 within 14 days I would commence my claim in the courts without further notice. That was sent to them April 12th. I telephoned them April 20th and they confirmed they had this letter. Is this good enough

Wifey so far so good!!

 

You have done it right up till now which is great!

 

The next step is you have to send them a letter stating that are going to commence court proceedings if they do not return the fees.

 

The letter for this is the third link I sent - its called the letter before action.

 

It forms part of the rules that you must as you have done, ask for the money back and then warn them of court action.

 

So send of the third link - Letter before action and then come back and post about court options and filing.

 

My suggestion - BIGGEST of all would be to register in the Halifax forum to see through the rest of your claim - it will give you confidence and have you supported by others claiming against them too. The link is here

 

http://www.consumeractiongroup.co.uk/forum/halifax-bank-bank-scotland/

 

Start a new thread at the bottom of the page - copy and paste your information in so far and everyone can support you through the rest of the process.

Hi I have been asked to by CJ to register here. I am about to send the Halifax a letter telling them I am starting court proceedings. This is all very scary - I just hope it worlks. I first started my complaint back in March. Fingers crossed as £4,403 would come in very handy!!! What are the chances of them paying up before court

Im afraid the chances are not great, but there is always a small chance, but think of the interest.

 

If you do have to file, there are loads of people behind you to help.

I have always used the N1, as it was easier. The court do it all for you.

You just take 3 copies of everything, they check it over and send everything where it needs to go.

 

I have just filed another this week and used mcol, just to see the difference. But i think i prefer N1.

 

Which ever way you decide, let me know and i can help you make sure you have everything you need.

If you're at the stage of filing your claim through the courts then YES you can now claim 8% interest on the charges under Section 69 of the County Courts Act. If you enter all your charge details into one of the spreadsheets in the Templates Library this will calculate the interest for you.

 

With regards to completing you N1 this link will help:
