Consultants or GPs to do PIP, DLA and ESA assessments for people with IBD”

Consultants or GPs to do PIP, DLA and ESA assessments for people with IBD

To get medical assessments conducted by qualified consultants and GPs who understand patients’ conditions in Crohn’s and Ulcerative Colitis, which can give accurate information about their disabilities to support their claims for PIP, DLA and/or ESA.

Here’s a bit about myself below:

I suffer from Ulcerative Colitis, ADHD, OCD, Anxiety and Depression Disorder and Cluster 4 which means I can't deal with day to day life. I'm on a drug called Infliximab Infusion which is for my IBD and have to have it every 6-8 weeks in hospital in the Infusion Unit. This suppresses my immune system, which means I am prone to infections. I have been rejected twice by PIP saying my IBD and Mental Health Issues don't affect me in my day to day life; I am now waiting for a tribunal.

The Petition Link is below:

Facebook Group was started 2 days ago with now over 700 members. Please join.

Thanks Mark
