hi there i recently attended a wca i'm currently awaiting the "0 points" letter (an optimist i am not) so i'm currently thinking one step ahead to the "mandatory reconsideration" where another decision-maker looks at my case or a "mandatory rediscrimination" as the case may be i heard you can send supporting information/evidence for said reconsideration the problem is my g.p has said "as a matter of policy" they do not write supporting letters as the demand would be too high i understand that in most succesful appeals, evidence is paramount i have failed my last rotation (wca-appeal-tribunal) due to what i believe to be lack of evidence i would have attempted to attain some at the time but not once was i informed that this was needed and important a convenient lack of transparency on the part of the dwp i think anyway, does anyone have any help/ideas/tips in getting medical evidence when your local clinic is unhelpful? any help would be greatly appreciated. :violin::violin: for the record, my claim is mainly on the basis that i cant walk 30 feet without experiencing pain in my lower back, knees and ankles. i needed a walking stick just to get from a car to the atos center, nothing was asked or looked at in the wca regarding this despite me going into detail about it in the esa50 and yet im confident of a "the customer can walk 100 meters unaided" diagnosis.........its a miracle........hallelujah thanks again for listening to my ramblings
Given that face to face assessments have now been conducted for some 3 years does anybody have a typical list of the questions asked by an ATOS HCP to determine points scoring re descriptors for part2 of the ESA 50 ie mental health and cognitive function.....or a link thereto. Questions asked post 3/11 would be of particular interest given that descriptors changed at that time. Such information should assist members to better prepare for the ATOS medical assessment, and moreover, be forewarned of the likely trick questions etc
