to ESA. Will I still need to be looking for work on ESA even before I have had my assessment at ATOS? Anyone know who has been through this please? I rang Biddy at BLF and she said no but my work programme advisor said yes and that I will still have attend the work programme before my assessment. That would defeat the object as I need a break from the pressure of job searching for the meanwhile. I estimate I will be going back on JSA in a month or two anyway so the ATOS assessment will be irrelevant.
