My friend was disgnosed with an Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm for the last few years. It has been closely monitored and it has now reached the size of 5.5cms which means he is no longer able to do his driving job. He has been self employed contracted out to do the work for a delivery company.

 

Should he claims JSA or ESA?

 

He is trying to convince the hospital to do the repair surgery on him at which point he would be allowed to go back to driving.

Depends. Is he just unfit for his driving job, or unfit for any job?

 

If it's the former, it's JSA. If it's the latter, it's ESA.

 

If he is going to go through surgery to enable him to return to work, he should claim ESA as being self employed he won't be eligible for SSP.

My advice is based on my opinion, my experience and my education. I do not profess to be an expert in any given field. If requested, I will provide a link where possible to relevant legislation or guidance, so that advice provided can be confirmed and I do encourage others to follow those links for their own peace of mind. Sometimes my advice is not what people necesserily want to hear, but I will advise on facts as I know them - although it may not be what a person wants to hear it helps to know where you stand. Advice on the internet should never be a substitute for advice from your own legal professional with full knowledge of your individual case.

 

 

Please do not seek, offer or produce advice on a consumer issue via private message; it is against

forum rules to advise via private message, therefore pm's requesting private advice will not receive a response.

Accoreding to GPNotebook.co.uk it says that

 

Group 2 entitlement:

  • disqualifies if the aortic diameter > 5.5cms. Relicensing may be possible after satisfactory medical. or surgical treatment. For abdominal aortic aneurysm the exercise test requirement must be met

So it souds like with surgical treatment he should be able to go back to driving a van.
