Hi, my name is Doreen54!......... Lies on my ESA Medical Assessment!!!
Just signed up as I used the site before when needing advice? Firstly I am on PIP and ESA for my depression and alcohol dependent and numerous other mental problems. Since the constant battle with the DWP over their decisions I am now dealing with another blower to add to my mental health issues! Since having my medical report delivered today from my ESA medical assessment last December they have put me in the Work Capability Group from Support Group. I told them I want to put in a Mandatory Reconsideration whilst I gather evidence to support it? Today I got the medical report stating why they gave me zero points based on what the Health Professional(NOT) put in the report. After I read it it was lie after lie pages of it. The DWP stated they will not accept a MR from may and decision does not change even though when I rang them they said they would with hold everything whilst I do my MR and gather evidence. I broke down just reading the lies in the report to be then told I would after go to a Tribunal if I needed to appeal before my MR was sent in? As I had my medical on 30th December, then on 8th Jan this year I got a letter stating I would need to attend the Jobcentre for work related interview. This I could not understand so when I rang the DWP they said I had been put in the WRAG and I said you havent even sent me a letter telling me this so they said they would send the letter to me. I still didnt receive it so I rang again and then I got a letter stating their decision last month and today I only received the actual medical report. When I rang them to request my MR on 25th January which I recorded as evidence they said they would wait for my MR? Can anyone tell me how they can do this and the fact that lies were put in the medical report that I NEVER said. Nothing was mentioned about my alcohol dependency but that I still was able to do work and attend the jobcentre interviews? Please can you tell me what I can do? I have a GP appointment and counselling tomorrow morning and a CAB next week. Thank you
