This Government are now trying to control what our GPs can do or can't.

Its unreal what is happening now in this country towards the disabled and vulnerable?

Jobcentre asking GPs to refer patients to a "patient coach." "You may consider issuing them a fit note with the proviso that they attend an appointment with me before returning for another fit note." Don't tell them it's the jobcentre.

Well folks it looks like this Government is so hell bent on getting people into Work, and if I could work, I darn well would just to get of this merry go round and relying on the state.



I find all this a damm disgrace to our human rights .......
This above is being planned to full rollout Now, and the pilot schemes have been taking place in Sunderland....

I truly believe this is a governments agenda to kill us all off. Sad times folks.☹️☹️☹️☹️☹️

"This must not be allowed to happen"

The Department of Work and Pensions (DWP) has published a contract notice announcing its plans for a £3.1billion revamp of heath checks for Personal Independence Payments (PIP) and other benefits.

PIP is not ESA or even UC, having one assessment for those benefits is morally wrong to treat them as ONE size fits all with that one assessment.

Latest update 9th May 2019

DWP confirms single assessment plans, despite Tomlinson confusion

The government has confirmed that it is pushing ahead with plans to test how it might be able to merge two disability benefit assessments into one, despite comments from a minister that appeared to suggest that no such plans were being discussed.

But DWP has now made it clear to Disability News Service that testing of a single assessment will be going ahead.

    Hi community please sign the petition below to help stop UC.

    As many will know regarding the Budget it was a sad day that Phillip Hammond did not get it scraped he actually gave it a few quid to get it rolled out.

    But Remember UC destroys lives and family's.

    Those who repeatedly go to their GP for fit notes when they are not ill or trying it on this is what the doctors are given an option to do and not hand our prescriptions or fit notes  when all the person needs is a good talking to.
