I am in the process of appealing the DWPs decision to put me in the with limited capability to work. I have just recieved a letter telling me the case has been sent to the Tribunals service. Appart from getting my name and address N.I. number and date of birth right, not much else is. The facts of the case they inform me are:- i claimed esa on the basis i was suffering from alcohol misuse (lie), i had learning difficulties (lie), and i had hearing problem (lie). They also claim I attended a medical on the 13th April 2012, i did not nor was i ever asked to attend said medical, and that the health care professional was that i could return to work within a year as i did not meet any of the descriptors for limited capability to work, NOWHERE IN THIS DECISION MAKERS WAS THE FACT THAT I HAD MS. Nor was the letter from my MS nurse taken into consideration, nor was my GP, Physio. or OT community care professionals.
Is this a new definition of MS can anyone tell me? Or do i suffer from selective memory loss?
Sorry to ramble on, but i wondered if anyone else had had a similar expierience.
must dash as the beer’s getting warm and i’m still sober
Oh if anyone replies to this ramble please shout as I can’t hear much
