Didn't Parkinsons UK area rep help ? Mine helped me to get DLA and ESA - I got put into the Support group after 20mins with the ATOS OH doc - very nice lady , very sympathetic - I know..............it's not normally that "easy" I think we shoulld get it automaatically without question but the UK gov thinks that everyone who claims benefits is somehow a scrounger !!

Stay strong

Great news. Always always get external help, it ususally make a huge difference. I only hope the DWP dont legislate against this in the future. Ayone subscribe to the Benefits and Work site and is it any good?
