ESA Report 5 years 11 months ago #73994

  • neilw
Hi, after the esa medical. If put in WRAG group does the report and scores from medical get sent to your local jobcentre. When i have to go for WFI will they have the descriptor scores so they aware of my problems.

I am concerned i score hign on mental health descriptors and behavioural issues, over 25 points with the jobcentre be aware of this.

Also will my GP be sent a copy. My GP or consultants were never contacted.

i dont think they go to ur WFI officer, i wouldnt imagine they have a copy.
you should request your ESA85 if you had a medical or ESA85a if not. i would put a request in writing to DWP for these & copy of all your paperwork.

the burdon of proof is on DWP to prove why you didnt meet support group descriptors. if they did not sent your gp an ESA113 then you could request that they do as they didnt have all relevent info to make a decision.

I would not expect a JC+ advisor to have access to any aspect of your medical assessment.

In fact, I think it would be very wrong if they did!
