This is a long story so I'll keep it as short as I can.
I feel as though I would like to take the Government and DWP to court over their treatment of me.
When I stopped working nearly 6 years ago I was paid by my company for a year and then applied for ESA.....I went for a medical and failed having only attaining 6 points.
I appealed and with the help of a help line manager I had my first tribunal after waiting 10 months.
I won and was awarded 24 points.
The new Welfare reforms stopped my money at the end of April 2012.
Again I had help from the help line and Lyn Smith was constantly speaking to them on my behalf (she was such a great help to me).
This went on for nearly a year and then they turned round and said to her 'They are not treating my case as urgent' (why didnt they say that months before instead of messing us about)
They then sent me for another medical in Aug 2013 and only awarded me 21 points.
I appealed for the second time and had my appeal tribunal in Sept 2014.
I failed and was stripped of all my points (fit for work now in their eyes) despite my consultant in Oxford saying in a letter that it is clear I'm not fit for work.
It took the DWP a DAY after the judgement to send me letters getting me off ESA.......P45 as well from them.
I would greatly appreciate anyones views on this and I will provide you with more details if you wish
