Welcome to the first (as far as I can tell) internet blog dedicated to revealing all of the underhanded tactics and bullying techniques used by the UK Benefits Agency against those of us who are in the unfortunate position of having to claim a benefit because of ill health.
Don’t get me wrong, I (and I’m sure you) know that there are a small minority of unscrupulous people out there who are making bogus and illegal claims. I don’t condone this and like other genuinely ill and or disabled people want to see an end to this practice.
However, I don’t see why the genuine ESA/PIP claimants should be tarred with the same brush.
What I want to do here is to create a site where people can say what they want without fear of reprisal from over zealous Government officials, identify and draw attention to bad practice, name and shame unprofessional behavior by ATOS (Now naming themselves OH Assist) Healthcare Doctors and DWP staff, show how inaccessible some of the buildings these so called “caring professionals” are occupying and expose the reasons why they are in such dubious locations.
I myself have recently fallen under the scrutiny of the ATOS and the DWP and fully expect my benefits to be stopped at any moment.
So to set the ball rolling, I’ll post my story soon.
P.S. If you would like to email me directly, you can at firstname.lastname@example.org I’d be very interested in your feedback.
