Gran suffered heart attack at job centre meeting - but was too scared to leave as she feared losing benefits

 

http://www.mirror.co.uk/news/uk-news/gran-suffered-heart-attack-job-10458734

 

A gran suffered a heart attack during a job centre employment meeting but said she was too scared to get up and leave – for fear of *losing her benefits .

 

Grandmother Salena Hannah, 50, claims she had the seizure during a Jobseeker’s Allowance appointment, but was ignored by the “callous” interviewer.

 

Salena said she dreaded falling victim to the Tory sanction scheme, introduced in 2012, which can involve a reduction in benefit – often to zero – and range from one week to three years.

 

“My job is under 16 hours, so I am forced to attend regular meetings, or my benefits might be stopped.

 

“I said I needed to go to the NHS walk-in centre immediately, but it fell on deaf ears. I was living in fear of being sanctioned and just felt trapped. I didn’t think I could leave or I would be sanctioned.”

 

Salena claims she was forced to endure a 40-minute JSA interview, while sweating profusely and suffering cheat pains.

 

 

After leaving the meeting, the lady went to the local walk in centre where an ambulance was called and she was then hospitalised and stents inserted.

"Claims she had the seizure". "I said I needed to go to the NHS walk-in centre immediately"

 

Why wouldn't she just walk out and then bring in medical evidence after visiting A&E, why would you go to a walk in centre.

 

If I was having a heart attack I would have dialed 999 for an ambulance.

I must admit, I would have telephoned 999 whilst still in the interview :noidea:
