In 2011 a Tribunal overturned DWP decision not to award me ESA. In May 2018 I was summoned to a medical assessment. It was clear the HCP had no knowledge of the complex life-threatening conditions I have or the effect they have on me, despite pages of medical evidence. Not once did she or DWP consider whether my conditions had worsened since 2011 (they have).
Now I am moving from ESA to Universal Credit and it is proving so stressful. But the one thing is clear, the HCP either wasn’t listening to me during the assessment or she has told lies on which the decision maker based her conclusion.
