Yes you heard it right. Advisors at Ashton Jobcentre are now providing miracle cures to the people claiming ESA. Even with sick notes and consultants letters they are pronouncing them fit for work. No medical assessment, no doctor present. Nothing. Well they must be fit then if Ashton Jobcentre say so. Saves a few quid on travelling to Lourdes or undergoing medical treatment! Ashton under lyne Jobcentre can cure anything! Even serious heart disease, high blood pressure and angina.
A lady went into the Jobcentre to see her “disability advisor”yesterday. I use that term very loosely because what she is really there for is to get people off the sick.. To perform minor miracles. She went in with her consultants letter, her sick notes and all of her medication… Which incidental makes her drowsy. She’s been advised to rest because she’s at a high risk of having a heart attack and she has a child to look after. After 5 minutes with the “disability advisor” she is pronounced fit for work. She’s not fit for work.she can’t work. Her doctor won’t allow it.
This is obviously another ploy to grind down and intimidate the poorest and sickest in society, and sadly it’s nothing new. What we need people to do is to talk about it, let others know that they are being intimidated in this way, it’s not acceptable at all. She is appealing though after speaking to me today.
If you know anyone who is suffering like this please support them in any way that you can.
Meanwhile Ashton under lyne Jobcentre will continue to provide miracle cures and the gods of ATOS will be rubbing their hands because it saves them a job.
