DWP & Assessment

Hi, I'm Alex

I have been dealing with the DWP myself while out of work due to a large corrective operation. I was signed off for 6-8 months by the team looking after me and gave all evidence concerning the issue to the DWP. I was sent for an assessment and have since learned that the assessor had repeatedly lied and had made assumptions on the assessment.
This is a breach of the Nurses Code of Conduct, is a dismiss-able offence and can be considered fraud in some cases. 
This is a gross neglect of anybody in a situation like many are by the DWP and this needs to change.
I have been in contact with a reporter from a nation news channel who is collecting stories like yours and mine to make a detailed report on what is happening to people like you that need help.
These companies that run the assessments are a profit based company working for the DWP, this is what your tax money has been paying for.
If you would like to tell your sorry I can forward you on to this reporter so she can gather information so we can stop this from happening.
Please email me at :

I am just someone, like you, who has witnessed first hand the state of the DWP and has decided to join the fight.
Please get in contact, the more stories we have the more chance we have to fight this.

Good luck
Alex

    This is not a personal account, this is made just for the reasons stated, to collect stories.
    Surely this would be ok considering what this is for?
    If I am not allowed to post the email address, where can I put a point of contact on here for this reason?

    Thanks

    Hi Poppy,

    Some people may not want to post personal info on this forum and some may have legal implications as my case does.
    Do you provide a private message service so these people can be protected?

    Thanks
