Terminally Ill People And Support Group: The Government E-Petition

March 9, 2015

Readers, if you have seen this and if you are even half as shocked by it as I am, please sign this Government Epetition by Becky Lindley. I just did.

Any terminally ill person should automatically be eligible for placement in ESA “Support” group.

Responsible department: Department for Work and Pensions

Currently, terminal ill people with a life expectancy of potentially more than 6 months claiming ESA are still expected to take part in work-related activity groups, I recently discovered.
The government should allow anyone with a terminal illness to claim benefits without having to waste what precious time they have on yet more appointments and assessments, that can only serve to remind them of their condition. They should be free to tend to their affairs, and make the most of their lives.

    I can see any employer taking anyone on who doesn’t now how long they are going to be here. aside from that usually when you get closer to death you become more ill and your health declines and anyway do they think when you terminally ill they can make you better and perform a miracle on you and you would be cured and ready for work?

What are you thinking?
