Good evening all 😁 New boy on the block lol. Had my 3rd assessment today in 6 yrs for the support group in esa. I actually had 4 but my second report contained so many lies, I had to appeal the decision. Fortunately I have page after page of reports from consultants and MRI scans etc. As such the decision maker overturned the decision, and stated it was obvious that I was clearly incapable of work. Strangely enough the assessor had left the company, so wasn't available for comment!!! 😠 My quiry is this, my condition is widely recognised and there is no prospect of improvement. In fact over these 6 years, it has gradually worsened. After various surgeries consultants have stated this in writing and it's known in the medical field. As such why do the dwp insist on making me travel a 66 mile round trip every 2 years in a lot of pain, for these assessments?? It's obvious that unless a miracle occurs, my condition will not improve. My late mother in law was signed off permanently with her problems, and did not have to attend any further assessments. Do you think a letter from my GP would help in that direction. Thanks for reading!
