TOPIC: Medical stopped after 5 mins by ATOS nurse

Medical stopped after 5 mins by ATOS nurse 4 years 10 months ago #84190

Hi Guys,
I had my medical yesterday afternoon at Bradford. I got a really nice lady who didi'nt talk down to me or treat me like I am "thick", like some other doctors I have had over the years. Since DWP & ATOS had somehow lost the ESA50 that had taken me ages to complete, I took the advise of Gordon and downloaded another form, filled it in, made copies of it this time, and took it to the medical, and gave a copy to the nurse. She read some of it, asked me four questions, then said "I am not going to continue with the medical" My heart dropped I thought she was going to say "go get a job " or something :lol: lol. But she said "I am going to advice DWP that you be placed in the support group because you clearly meet the criteria.
It felt like a massave weight had been lifted of my back, sooooo pleased.
I just hope that the DM will take her advise !!! :)
So I owe a great big THANK YOU to Gordon and all that work so very hard to make this site so very interesting and helpful. The amount of information on here is massive. Could not of filled the ESA50 form in right if I hadn't of come across this site.
THANK YOU BW :kiss: :woohoo: :lol:
