ib to support group success 4 years 6 months ago #90440

Hi Guys

a huge heartfelt thanks for your dedication to helping members cope with an unfair and mean-spirited system

11 weeks after the letter beginning the transfer process, 4 weeks to submit the form, waiting 18 weeks to have a recorded medical, and waiting another 11 weeks for a decision (34 weeks in total) our result is a transfer from IB to ESA Support Group for 3 years.

We could not have coped without the advice you guys provided

To all our members still in the grip of this heinous assessment process remember the odds are so heavily stacked against us take all the help you can from here, and get someone else - to help you fill in the form - try not to do it by yourself

best of luck


apologies if the language is too strong - mods please edit if you need to

The language looks OK to me, Issie - what we cannot allow are things that accuse DWP and/or ATOS of deliberate malpractice etc. I'm sure one of my fellow mods will intervene if they think I am wrong!

I'm glad that the news was good after such a long wait. Thank you for letting us know - and for your kind words about this site :)

Well done Issie, for getting into the support group and for getting that elusive recorded medical!

(I'm pleased to say that B&W members don't use the sort of fowl language you often find on other forums) :)
