It would be good to keep it. But my Husband who has Heart failure and can hardly walk very far apparently is entitled to it but they have not even assessed him. They did not even ask our doctors about the extinct off his condition be they turned him down twice. He is still working full time with great difficulty as they are forcing him to do this when he is not fit for it.
Sorry NOT entitled to it!!!
Cath, The only thing you have to do is gather as much as evidence and certificates as much as possible, (GP's, Specialist), Go to a heart charity foundation and fill in with them the form...
And of course notes from the hospitals as well to relate the sickness to its physical condition plus at what rate he was and he is admitted etc...
We don't have the notes they all get sent to doctors. But I think it is all wrong we get no help with anything, We never seem to be entitled to it, He has worked all his life and when he applies for anything it is always a big fat no. Feeling disgusted with this whole situation.
Keep up the good work, pressure and numbers of people, shame it is happening, some officers of the gov prob got loads of up grades for this!!
I've been reading up on the whole benifit changes etc and spoken to a few people about the dla being dropped, it's being replaced with another benifit called PIP in my head I'm thinking... Tax loop!
I agree with everything you stand for :-)
keep up the good work - you are unsung heroes
