Hi again Alex - before I forget, firstly I need to ask for any part of my queries from last evening not to be displayed on your site, as it has just occurred to me that I named the person and the Trust, which could land me in really hot water if anyone else from the same Trust happens to see my queries. I would be prosecuted under the Confidentiality Clause of the Trust declaration which I signed when I was employed with them. Could you kindly confirm that any reference to last night's query is removed?? Many thanks for that.
Now down to the queries posed to me by my local Count Court office. She asked what the claim was about, to which I said "A claim of up to £59,000 damages as a result of being called a liar by the Trust and severe worsening of my cardiac condition, leading to a Pacemaker being fitted".
She went on to say:
1. I would need to have funds to cover 5% of the 'claimed fee' to pay the day I complete the application form, i.e. this Friday. I was shocked at the amount I would need to find, and alas cannot afford to pay out such an amount this week. I would be able to pay £1,500, which would limit my claim to a max of £30,000.
2. I would need to put the exact details of my claim on the form, as details of the claimant and defendant would not suffice, and it may be that I could not make such an application at a County Court Office. They said I need to check with the CCMCC as to what the maximum would be with such a form.
She also said I would need to speak with my solicitor to ask for advice on how to accurately complete the form, as any error could end up as an extremely expensive error. I rang my solicitor today, who is in a leading DPA Legal Team in London. She said she has no knowledge of a protective proceedings claim!!!!!
What advice could you kindly give me to ensure I fill the correct form in (i.e. is the form you let me have sight of last night an N1 form, as it doesn't give any code number on it, and is that the only form I need to complete?
