DWP Medical assessment waiting times
Just wondering if there comes a time where waiting for a DWP medical becomes a cause for an official complaint? As far as I can see the wait is being used (along with the 3 month limit on backdates) to stop people claiming thier entitlements
And who would you make this 'official' complaint to and on what grounds??
I dont know. But surely a system created to make people poorer by going past backpay parameters has to have the slightest touch of illegality about it wouldnt you say?
Are you waiting on an assessment now?
My friend has been waiting six months for a Universal credit assessment. She is limited to 15 hrs work a week by her doctors. Rheumatoid arthritis scoliosis and osteoarthritis. They wont give her a date for her assessment
Hi make an official complaint to dwp about them and the assessors and go to your M P as government denying this lenth of time is going on .and some MPS trying to get this nasty UNIVERSAL credit stopped or halted as it is not working for the disabled and normal people also getting sanctions and no money etc.
Ok thanks will look into it
Aha...universal credit is a totally new mess.
No one can ever predict how long wait your friend will have.
Yup a real kafkaesque nightmare
Will update here if I get anywhere or find anything out which may be of help to others
