Hi Angie, sorry to read of all your painful issues. With regard to losing your job was it on the cards even without your fractured ribs, if not it may be worth contacting NOS/Citizens Advice/ACAS as if you've lost your job due to your fractures that may be seen as discrimination against you, not able to offer any advice regarding your ESA but i wish you luck getting everything resolved xxxxx

You don't say what you were doing when you had these fractures. If it was work related, maybe you could put in a complaint and get compensation. Were you in a union? They would be able to advise you. "Benefits and Work" website will be able to advise on ESA and other issues. And they have a forum. Good luck on your journey of getting some help.


I think you are right.
