I spoke to a charity for my rare condition today. They told me to report some Doctors to the GMC. They are taking on work they are claiming to be specialists in, when the charity have never heard of them.
I was put in touch with solicitor after an accident via car insurance legal protection.
The last Doctor made stuff up and when I told the charity what they wrote they were horrified.
Whilst it's horrible doing this to me. Legal fees and medical reports getting paid, me no compensation at this rate, there is a big problem with our condition, parents falsely accused of NIA and FII. It's horrific to think these people behaving like this and the damage they could cause claiming to be experts in a rare condition when they are not.
I have just reported the second to the gmc, you have to email after the first.
What about the solicitors, they tried to bully me before by finding me a thousand pounds if I didn't take rubbish reports, I told them all the way through where to go for specialists and they get these instead. I lost my case over them. I want to stop this before innocents get hurt by them. I am crippled that's bad enough, some child may be wrongly removed from their family by this lot.
Rebuild - the two week thing with GMC is an automated response. Sometimes you can get a reply a lot quicker. They won't be able to get you or pay you compensation though - they only look at whether what the doctors did needs them ( the GMC) to act on how the doctors can work.
Ok, one thing he said I was 9/9 on the Brighton scale. I am not and never could be, anyone with a speciality in my condition would know that and be able to test for that. The other one was a geneticist wanting to test me when there is no genetic test for my type of the condition, again a specialist in the condition would know this. An average rhumy or geneticist would not know this, only a specialist. The charity have not heard of them and were alarmed at these Doctors touting for business as specialists in the condition, when they clearly are not.
He told me they were and they took on the job, they knew I had the condition, and that they needed to report on it's affecting me being injured. Regardless of me, it's too late for me, they could be talking crap about other families in court, not a loss of compensation, a loss of a child from their family of origin.
That's not necessarily the case. If your solicitor has been...less than honest, shall we say, he could have been less than honest with the doctors as well - providing incorrect or incomplete information, deliberately withholding details, asking for the wrong types of report or asking the wrong questions. It's not unheard of in medico legal circles.
I presume you have seen & been examined by the doctors rather than them just being sent info by your solicitor?
Have you thought about contacting your MLE insurer, to get different sols? Have your objections to the medical report/expert comments been made in writing, & their response/threat in writing too? MLE are ultimately funding these sols & the medical expert so I think they'd be interested in what's gone on. It would be really useful if all you've said here is in writing.
You can still do everything else suggested re SRA & GMC, but you might be able to move to different sols, funded by MLE while the conduct of both original sols & med expert looked at.
I got through to the insurers, first central, after half an hour I was told to go to the CAB, as this firm was some umbrella of their legal team. The guy couldn't transfer me, he deals with car crashes apparently. He spoke to the solicitor and they are calling me back. I have been given paperwork to sign away lots to say I will not claim over ten thousand pounds and vArious other things I disagree with, I don't know why I was given this to sign. It says I will agree to what the unqualified thumbs who is incompetent says and a geneticist when they'Re unheard of by the charity and there is no genetic test. I am being royally screwed over. Should I tell the court or what I hate they can do this to pe, the char is right site a money making scam with the legal team and doctors using people giving them false hope, wasting their time going to medical.
It doesn't matter I will write to the court via email to explain and see what they say, probably lose the case and get a fine of a thousand pounds on top. I am so depressed let down again by the people who should help me, upsets me more than anything.
