ESA reductions & Pip asessment
Hi all, just joined this group.... I have been on ESA & PIP for about 8 years now... Started with a heart attack & a blockage in my groin.... To date I have had 4 heart attacks... Single bypass, 4 stents, 3 diamond vortex coils, heart disease, artery disease, micro vascular disease, COPD & arthritis . Also have been diagnosed with personality disorder & other mental health issues ( exacerbated by DWP). Had to fight every decision DWP has made concerning ESA & PIP. 5 appeals won... And now on a mandatory reconsideration for Pip. ESA has just taken away my severe disability payment losing me over £60.00 a week.. Is this payment PIP related or has a decision been made to take it from me.. I have received no notice? I also believe that my Pip asessment was illegal as I asked for an assessor trained in mental health well in advance ... Was denied & interview was terminated.. Again they called me in & I was denied a mental health assessor..... Surely this is against section 6 of the human rights act.. Right to a fair trial... Its a trial of my capabilities.. A trial all the same... Frustrated at going round in circles with these people, in & out of appeal courts every year for the last 6-7 years.....
