This was a claim for Travelling Expenses for poor service.
Throughout the complaint I was continually refused justice by the Hospital Authorities.
The complaint !
- Sent for overnight tests at Boston General NHS from Lincoln –Reported at 6pm and they sent me home without treatment. I claimed 45p per mile travelling expenses, to and from home, they offered 15p.
2 Sent to Gainsborough Hospital NHS from Lincoln for a Neurological Consultation and shortly after another at Lincoln County – I claimed 45p per mile travelling expenses, to and from home, they offered 15p
3 Refused Orthopaedic Surgery at Lincoln County NHS, GP requested surgery at Sheffield NHS. Travelled 9 times to Sheffield from Lincoln for the Surgery- I claimed 45p per mile, they offered 15p
Total claimed £605 .67 including Court fees and Expenses
They paid me £37.10 which I rejected
They paid me another £175.25 which I rejected
After taking them to the Small Claims Court they paid me £393.32 as an Ex Gratia Payment, ie 45p per mile.
The moral to this story is that Lincolnshire NHS and their successor Lincolnshire West CCG did not want to challenge my claim in a Court of Law, so they coughed up and those who feel badly treated succeed, if they don’t weaken.
