TOPIC: 0 to 33pts on 1st 3 Descriptors at ESA Tribunal

0 to 33pts on 1st 3 Descriptors at ESA Tribunal 6 years 4 months ago #58895

The long awaited and dreaded day of the ESA Tribunal arrived......and finally, justice, and sense prevailed! Zero to 33 pts on first 3 Descriptors and placed in the Support Group.

The panel were kind on me as they could see I was in great difficulty and was told that with all the extra medical evidence supplied they would limit their questioning. They did, and the Doctor asked a couple of questions and the Judge only one. I was in for around 15 mins and the decision was made whilst I waited in the waiting room.

I had my Carer with me whom the Doctor also asked a question of and my Representative who, having collated and submitted all the evidence had only one thing to say to the panel: "the evidence is clear".

Had I not had access to this site and familiarised myself with the processes involved, used the step-by-step guides then I'm sure I'd be in a very different position now. So, a massive thanks to all the Benefits and Work Team :)

Well done hellsbells59, and thanks for letting us know.

It's a shame the DWP doesn't keep statistics of their most disastrous decisions turned over on appeal.

fantastic news but, once again, shame on the DWP and ATOS as this clearly shows total disregard for the truth !

well done,

Lisa
