DWP is trying to co-opt GPs in forcing ill people into work

facade welfareYesterday on Twitter, I posted one of my previous posts – Jobcentre tells GP to stop issuing sick notes to patient assessed as ‘fit for work’ and he died in which I discuss a letter addressed to a GP regarding a seriously ill patient. It said:

We have decided your patient is capable of work from and including January 10, 2016.

“This means you do not have to give your patient more medical certificates for employment and support allowance purposes unless they appeal against this decision.”

The patient, James Harrison, had been declared “fit for work” and the letter stated that he should not get further medical certificates. 

However, 10 months after the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) contacted his doctor without telling him, he died, aged 55. James clearly wasn’t fit for work.

    Any doctor worth his salt should be telling the DWP exactly where to go, this is so unethical and goes against the Hippocratic oath. Many people still refer to Work Capability Assessments as “Medicals” or “Health Assessments”, they are neither, they do not assess your health, only your capability to work, that is not the same thing , these assessments are carried out by supposed “Health Care Professionals” ( and i use that term in the broadest sense), many of which ARE NOT qualified to make a diagnosis. They have no right legally, ethically or morally to advise a doctor let alone advise a doctor based on pure assumption which basically at the end of the day, without the necessary qualifications, they have plucked out of their arses
