Campaign to end dehumanising PIP process 8 months 1 week ago #245612

In August last year I began the transfer process from DLA to PIP. to begin with they refused my application as it had taken them 22 days from postage to be scanned onto their systems. I had previously had mid care component and high mobility. During my time on DLA I underwent 3 Nuero surgeries involving a lot o cervical discectomy and metal work. I did not request any further payments. I went to the PIP assessment, the report was full of inaccuracies and lies. I failed mobility and got basic care. They even commented on my ability to scratch my head and take a tissue when. Distressed. Mandatory reconsideration was accompanied by medical proof from one of The top neurosurgeons in the country. In his letter he explained that I was unable to walk. And that I was disabled by The constant surgeries that I have had over the last 20 years. In December I underwent major and rare neurosurgery where my cervical spine was connected to my thoracic spine. Despite this I still failed the mandatory the Mandatory reconsideration. I have therefore started a petition in order to stop this assessment process as I was advised that despite my change in circumstances I would have to go to tribunal, and that this would take a year. That I would in fact be better to reapply. Which I have done as I’m extremely isolated and have limited access to support. I have now contacted my own MP for their support and I would ask any member of the forum to please sign the attached petition the change and share among those who this affects.Please see the link below, I am just one person but hopefully together we can make some sort of difference or at least highlight this awful process

Hi Sharon

So sorry to hear what you have had to go through.

Well done in starting a petition which I have signed and passed on to a few friends.

Hope you can appeal. Don't give up because that's what they want us all to do. Keep fighting, we're all in this together.

Let us know on the forum of any news.

Good luck.

At 10,000 signatures, the government will formally respond. At 100,000 signatures, the request will be considered by the Petitions Committee for debate in Parliament. So an uphill battle but every signature counts. So thank you for your support.

Hi Bis I hope I find you and yours well. I am a real blonde technophobe. Can I please ask how to repost this to highlight my petition. I didn’t feel it appropriate at the height of the pandemic but I don’t want it to be lost. My local MP has taken interest in my case so hopefully I will have a supporter! Desperately need the petition signed .
