“Imagine you are happily commuting to work one day when someone pushes you onto the train tracks” #Atos #wca #MentalHealth
In her own words….
“Imagine you are happily commuting to work one day when someone barges past you on the train platform, pushing you onto the tracks where the train goes over your legs.
You wake up in hospital, no legs and damaged internal organs. You can’t even take care of changing your own nappy. You have to learn to use a wheelchair and how to live again with your disability.
You can’t work so apply for ESA. ATOS demand you attend a work capability assessment. “But I’m still in hospital!” You reply. ATOS reply “we don’t believe you. Make your doctor send us a letter to prove it”.
The doctor won’t. He has been ordered by the government not to get involved in “DWP issues”. You eventually persuade him but it costs you £45 for him to write the “non standard letter”.
