TOPIC: ESA medical

ESA medical 7 years 4 months ago #14965

I am due to receive an ESA medical. I have browsed this forum and read the negative experiences of a lot of people, who it seems.were misrepresented in these medicals, ie incorrect information given by Atos medical assessors,answers not correct etc: what I want to understand is why do these people do this what is in it for them,to decline people who are obviously entitled to this benefit. I appreciate any clarification,and any advice. Thankyou

it's simple it's to get the goverment figures down. as they have to have so many reductions to come off the benfit, as now there are more than ever people ill for one reason or another. the only thing is they target the wrong ones. !!! it's all about numbers.

Re Advice, there are some good guides to the ESA process, including the medical assessment, in the members area of this site located here:
