    • 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

:confused: Hi, have been down the route of writing to Lloyds asking for refund of bank charges - £2150. They replied said no with usual response letter. Replied gave them further notice to review their decision and stated that if I did not receive a response then court action would be started.

 

No response so started court action via mcol (though not sure I provided all the information they wanted) and it was served on 01/05/07. Lloyds have until 15/05/07 to reply. Received a letter today from Lloyds in Andover saying that sorry to hear that I still wasn't happy and unable to add to their previous letter. They see from their records that I have issued a Court claim and that their solicitors are now dealing with it.

 

Help what do I do, and what is likely to happen next??

Hi

Lloyds have 14 days from the date the claim was served (it is served 5 days after you filed it) to acknowledge the claim, and then 28 days from the date it was served to enter a defence. You will then receive a copy of their defence and you may receive an Allocation Questionnaire to fill in. These links will help you to fill it in if you get one:

http://www.consumeractiongroup.co.uk/forum/general/57708-draft-order-allocation-questionnaires.html

 

http://www.consumeractiongroup.co.uk/forum/bank-templates-library/11644-allocation-questionnaires-guide-completion.html

 

If you don't get an AQ, read this:

Also have a look at this:

Why do you say that you are not sure that you have provided all the information they needed??

 

Good luck, let us know how you get on.

Thx for that. Have now read Getting MCOL Right and following the instructions. On Particular of Claim (via internet) I just quoted claiming unfair bank charges. Will now submit information and letters to court for particulars of claim as suggested.

:confused: Have just received notice of transfer of proceedings to my local court and it was accompanied with notice stating that allocation questionnaire is being dispensed with. I have got 4 points on my defence from Lloyds.

 

1. This defence is served without prejudice to the Defendant's contention that the Particulars of Claim is insufficiently particularised and is embarrasing. The Defendant reserves the right to plead further to the Particulars of Claim once they are sufficiently particularised.

 

2. The Defendent will object that the Particulars of Claim in this action disclose no reasonable cause of action against the Defendant and makes no specific allegations against the Defendent as to why the Defenedent should be liable to the Claimant for the amount claimed.

 

3. The Particulars of Claim do not comply with Rule 16.4 1a of the Civil Procedure Rules as "amongst other things" they do not identify the account in question that appears to form the subject matter of these proceedings, or indeed show how the sum of £2152 is arrived at, and there is no pleaded basis in law and fact for the claim itself, the Particulars of Claim are too vague.

 

4. The Particulars of Claim shows no reasonable grounds for bringing the claim and should be struck out pursuant to Rule 3.4 2a-c of the Civil Procedure Rules.

 

Claimed via MCOL, is this usual response, what should I do next?

Getting V V CONFUSED!!

You say you claimed via MCOL, did you use the Particulars of Claim template from this site??

 

If you did, then I can't see that you have anything to worry about. This seems a fairly standard defence, one I have read many times. It is just their way of trying to make you think you've done something wrong. If you've followed the guidelines and used the templates layed out on this site then I can't see you have any problems as they have all been tried and tested with great success.

No totally mucked up, didn't use spreadsheet from website and didn't put down my account details on MCOL. Previously wrote to Lloyds with standard letters and printout of charges though.

What should I do next, do I need to submit N244?

Have filled N244 do I need to accompany it with a new N1 form, as previously filed via MCOL. Also struggling slightlly on P O C figures at bottom.

 

Have now filled in list of charges form via this website, do I put in £2152 from 01/03/01 plus interest. Then how do I work out daily interest which needs filling in????

 

Can someone please help as I need to send it off today.

The total will be the charges plus the interest.

 

The daily rate is worked out by Charges Total x 0.00022

 

So, £2152 x 0.00022 = £0.47
