NHS Staff Sold PPI Was A Scandal

During the lending boom, PPI was mis-sold to a huge number of people. It was an add-on product that brought substantial profits to the financial sector but very little in the way of benefits to the customer. Scandalously, it was even aggressively sold to public sector workers, including those in the NHS who already had sickness cover from their employers, not to mention a guarantee against compulsory redundancies.

The policy itself should never have even been offered to many thousands of individuals, but it was not only offered, it was persuasively pushed by sales teams that seemed to care more about their targets than they did about fair play. The end result was NHS and other public sector employees spending significant sums of money on something that was little more than a white elephant.

Even after all these underhand tactics came to light in recent times, there are still some people who seem reluctant to seek compensation for the mis-selling that took place on an industrial scale. The harsh truth is that banks, building societies and other credit providers played on the trust that we had in them at that time, and took advantage of it. It wasn’t right, and something should be done about it.

Fighting for some well-deserved justice

Beat the Banks have campaigned strongly for justice for NHS workers caught up in the PPI scandal. We think it was outrageous for the financial sector to sell redundancy insurance to people who couldn’t be made redundant, and to push sickness insurance on individuals who would have been paid anyway. Those lenders who were the most aggressive of all really should be ashamed of themselves.

Personal Protection Insurance was added on to mortgages, loans, credit cards, catalogue accounts and store cards, and the major players in UK finance employed sales teams who were encouraged to be as aggressive as possible in order to sell, sell, sell. Looking back now, it’s easy to see why this time is viewed as a somewhat dark period for the relationship between the financial sector and its customers.

People who took out any form of credit during the lending boom were regularly pushed in an aggressive manner towards taking out a PPI policy. If they said no, they were often referred to a senior manager for yet more cajoling. As if all this wasn’t unseemly enough, it should also be pointed out that many people were given PPI without even asking for it, and sometimes weren’t even told it had been included.

Beat the Banks continue to fight on behalf of all public sector workers, including those in the NHS. The PPI situation should never have been allowed to develop, and that’s why people are rightly seeking compensation now. The deadline for claims is coming soon, so it’s important to contact our specialists and start the process. If you were thinking about making a claim, we can do it on your behalf, so call our friendly team today on 0800 193 1234 to find out more.

We hope to hear from you soon.

  • Mrs C, Glasgow

    “From beginning to end, Beat the Banks have been very efficient. I am very pleased with the service from Jenna and the team. I am highly delighted and I have been recommending all of my friends.”

  • Shona, Dundee

    “Huge thank you to the team. After attempting to claim PPI myself and getting absolutely nowhere, I got Beat the Banks involved and ended up getting  £12,000. What a result. Beat the Banks made it so easy and were committed right to the end.”

  • Mr A McQuillian

    “From previous experience of PPI claim companies, I was a bit dubious if anyone could help me but I thought I would try Beat The Banks. To say I am pleased with the service and conclusion to my claim is an understatement. Beat the banks and my claim handler in particular handled all aspects of the claim from Clydesdale Bank with professionalism, courtesy, and efficiency to secure a positive result on my behalf. I would certainly recommend the services of Beat the Banks to anyone who thinks they have PPI claim, especially with the Clydesdale Bank.”

  • Mrs S, Falkirk

    “I was apprehensive about using a company to claim my PPI as I had previously responded to a “cold call” and was pestered with calls. I heard about Beat The Banks on a local radio station and because they were based in Scotland I felt comfortable approaching them. I have had a very positive experience with Beat The Banks. They are not pushy and answer any queries timeously. All the Agents I have spoken to were knowledgeable, polite and friendly. After the initial information gathering conversation, they understood my needs and just got on with my claim. No hassle. Even when it was clear that my claim was of a relatively low value they processed without delay. I would definitely recommend using Beat The Banks …. they put all the other companies out there to shame.”

  • T & A, Dundee

    “Down entirely to Mike’s hard work, we previously had a successful claim with Clydesdale Bank. Mike was convinced we had more loans with PPI and he was relentless in efforts to recover our paperwork from the bank. Finally, after many attempts, enough records were recovered to submit several claims. We have now received much more compensation, covering loans going back many, many years. If it had not been for Mike and the team at Beat the Banks this would never, ever have happened. Literally, all we did was sign our name and bank the cheque.”

  • Dave & Linda , Dundee

  • Mr S, Dingwall

    “Have just found out I have won all my cases with the bank, going back many years and been awarded compensation of just over £15,000!”
