ESA

Had my esa medical and failed got zero points then I sent my appeal form. And ended up being sent another medical form to be filled in and sent off, has any one else had another medical throw appeal process.

Hi David,

I’m sorry you didn’t get any answers. I’ve never had to go to tribunal so I had no personal experience. I wondered if anyone else had been medical-ed twice – it seems not.

If you are not already a member Benefits and Work have some sage advice for what to do at a medical (Like staying silent when the examiner is writing) I wonder if a second medical is part of the DWP “looking again” Perhaps they discovered that the first medical was flawed in some way. If this is the case you might never have to go to tribunal if they find in your favour at a re-look.
