    Hi @Quinlan1, how are you getting on with this? Is there anymore pieces of evidence that you'd be able to send?

    My friend is in receipt  of pips , and ESA but had to move over to universal credit .He failed the health capability assement , scored 0 , was told he was fit for work . He today saw his surgeon  , and he has to have a emergency operation , maybe 2 , they have already a sowbed him for MRSA , taken blood tests , and booked him in for a MIR Scan 
    And the Surgeon  said that universal credit should send him the surgoeon  the health questionair  for him and his team to fill in , as that is what the usual process is .

    No, they very rarely contact anyone for evidence, the onus is on the claimant to make sure they send the evidence to support a claim. It's not their responsibility to prove a person is unfit for work, it's the claimants responsibility to prove they're unfit for work.

    Don't be silly. They should do but actually very rarely don't bother.
