HI, i filled in an esa 50 form, on it I said I would need a home visit. On Friday, I received a letter from atos, informing me, I had to attend there medical centre for an assessment. i called and asked why I could not have a home visit and was told the procedure was for my gp to write a letter asking for a home visit for me. I called the surgery and was informed by the receptionist that it was not possible to speak to the doctor but she would pass on my message and call me back. Call me back she did and said my gp said he could only write for home visits for patients who were house bound! Although I am not housebound my gp knows i suffer fromdepression and anxiety, fibromyalgia, hypothyroidism, asthma,ibs, trapped nerve in my shoulder I am prescribed pain killers and muscle relaxants as well as asthma inhalers, antihistimanes, antidepressants . I cant understand why my gp will not support me and am very angry, does anyone have any suggestions onhow i can get a home visit or get my gp to write me a letter, am at my wits end.
