Hi please can you advise. I am 64 years old due to retire in November. I have been on universal credit for a year but I have had regular sick notes from my go. I have bulging discs diagnosed sciatica diagnosed. IBS diagnosed. Depression stress and anxiety diagnosed. Shortness of breath when walking etc.I have just been awarded pip and a full time carer my ex partner. I went for my work capability and I scored 0 points. I have asked for a Mandatory Reconsideration as the majority of the information is either untrue or incorrect. No approach was made to my gp for medical records to confirm my diagonisis. The assessment quite frankly is full of holes. I will appeal if I lose the mandatory reconsideration as i have bren treated disgracefully. My question to you is whete do I stand i have a cutrent not fit to work medical certificate up until 30th June but iam now told that its irrelevant as i have failed my work capability. I am not well hence why i have a sick note i disagree with their findings and i can back this up with medical evidence.does this mean they can force me back to work against doctors orders? I am really not well enough anyway please advise.
