This is an issue with demographics.
We must must must have an adult discussion as a nation about the increased cost of people living longer.
We need to be grown up and accept that the old will have to be prepared to pay for more and better management of the help needed in old age.
I was saddened that the idea of the elderly paying on death part of their estate to cover the cost of some of the costs of their care in old age got such a ragging in the general election campaign.
We need IMO to remove the care of the elderly from local councils and made it part of the NHS in a specialist wing of the NHS which oversees elderly care.
A and E units is not where a elderly person with flu having difficulty breathing needs to be they need specialist nurses and support within a suitable environment staffed by doctors who specialise in elderly care.
It’s essential we get into gear and deal with this issue.
However I see no issue with the cancellation of elective surgery during emergency’s there’s no point in having staffed hospitals a third empty just in case.
This is not just a money issue the nhs is behind the curve dealing with the changing demographics of patients and the spilt between health (nhs ) and social ( councils ) is a major cause of of the difficultly in getting a streamlined efficient system for elderly care working.
And we all need to take better care of our own health certainly there’s no need for the nhs to creak under the strain of caring for the obese individuals ,in the vast majority of cases can deal with that themselves with no cost to state at all.

I think you will struggle to find someone who will allow you to do this because it could cause a whole load of problems, we have houses and flats we rent and we wouldn’t allow it but that’s not to say some tenants don’t do it, how would you do it would the person have their own tenancy agreement?

So glad the GP was good!
Glad you are going back in a week too. This means the GP wants to keep a close eye on you (and it doesn’t mean that he’ll be signing you fit for work next week). Sounds like he will support you to return to work when you are doing a lot better, and not before. Good!

My GP has certainly offered to sign me off before, but I went down the ‘low dose medication’ route which fortunately worked well.
My issues weren’t work related though, and I’m sure a GP would be even more likely to sign you off in a case of work related stress..

Last year I was suffering from foot pain it was cured by a physio who I was referred to by occupational health as I had back issues. She used deep tissue pressure techniques which sorted the back and the foot. When I mentioned the foot she explained the tense muscles in the back were making me load the foot in a way that it produced a secondary problem. I nearly went down the orthotics route. Try a sports injury physio.

@alainax erm. No?? Why on Earth would BT be aware of a contract in place with another service provider?! They can only do as a customer requests. The OP requested to move her services to BT, and so they placed an order.
Any relationship or contract with the OP and TalkTalk is not anything to do with BT.
With regards to the rolling contract, you are either in a contract or not. If you are not, then you’ll be able to leave whenever you like (usually there is a £31 disconnection fee, depending on the type of exchange).
Still having services does not mean you are in a rolling contract, it just means in most cases that your discounts have ended.
What Alainax has pointed out is AUTO renewing contracts- this is to protect the consumer from being stung and not being able to access new deals. This has nothing to do with the OP.
If you are in a contract, then you will have to pay to leave it- I appreciate you are disputing the contract issue.
By OFCOM regulations, they should have a record of all calls/interactions within the last 6 months- did you supposedly recontract during this time frame? If you did it over the phone you can have the call listened too, but they should be able to give you an exact time that the order was placed.
Emails are a bloody nightmare- systems cannot use the same one across the board of ISPs (internet service providers). You’d be best off going with a Gmail address, and then linking important stuff to that.
@sue This is only offered to some customers in some areas- at certain times the year.
(Although most service providers do this!)
