TOPIC: Got through medical report

Got through medical report 5 years 11 months ago #73125

  • janymac
Hi
I have posted a few times, but as we have literally just got the medical report through on which the WRAG group decision was based, I a was wondering if you help again?

Other than one small inaccuracy, it was very good and comprehensive, however, it said in one place
Prognosis
I advise that a return to work is unlikely for at least 2 years.
and
The ESA50 and 113 indicates that a return to work is unlikely in the loinger term

I may be very wrong, but surely this means he should not be in the WRAG but put in support and reassessed in 2 years or so?

My husband has a progressive MS.

I'm afraid entry to the Support Group is not dependant on the prognosis.

Have a look at the following FAQ for a more detailed explanation.
