Why is this important?

There are thousands suffering due to bad or incorrect assessments this needs to be addressed and changed to provide proper medical evidence by properly qualified doctors & specialists( psychiatric &medical) not just someone with low medical training eg physiotherapists and the like.


Reasons for signing

  • this government stinks the way they treat people its bad
  • Needs to be more thank a tick the box assessment.
  • My husband has been declared fit for work after one of these assessnents despite having limited vision. He has now had his ESA stopped and has to claim JSA. Our appointment isn't until 22nd November and we don't have any money coming in until 2 weeks after that. These assessments are a complete joke and need to be abolished!
