  • I just hd my assessment this week from atos. my advice is get a copy of all your consultant letters,n a supporting letter from your doctor,also from ur other half.As they need to hear frm everyone who is involved in your life,to explain how ur illness affects your everyday life,n how it affects ur other half.. Also take your oh in with you when u c atos. And no point in telling you to relax as i couldn't until it was over. I'm now waiting on my outcome. hope this helped. n good luck!

  • I know mate, its disgraceful. Alcoholics, drug addicts and foreigners get treated with more respect. Ive just been having a huge rant about the way im being treated by ESA atm. I wrote a lengthy complaint to our local job centre 3 months ago and they havent had the decency to even acknowledge that they'd received my letter. Rude, bloody rude. good luck in the future

  • If you haven't already got them, email info@fibroaction.org and we can send out the guides from Benefits & Work for free.

  • Thank you for information I will do that to day

  • Today I am lost for words and struggling to answer members even though I have been there myself, as have others. I think I am worded out. I wish you well with the DWP and tell it as if you are on your worst day xxxxx
