PIP refusal as expected. Has anyone got over this first hurdle ( not literally )?
These assessments are not very scientific. The DWP have decided I can stand and walk 200 metres yet there is no evidence of this. I told the Capita assessor every step is agony for me, I'm not awaiting double TKR for no reason. The report is littered with inaccuracies and the tests are ridiculous. It was stated I do not have CTS as my grip was very good. This consisted of pinching the assessor's thumbs with my thumbs and index fingers. I plan on asking what the actual pounds per square inch force was. It's ludicrous. These tests have exacerbated my conditions, particularly my arthritic knees acid reflux condition. Would I have any redress under Cruel and Unusual Punishment as per The Human Rights Act?
