I'm sorry your tribunal went against you. I can't imagine what more in the way of evidence they can want than a GP, a consultant and scan reports.

Hi SIG

Your hearing sounds a bit like mine. I lost interest five minutes into the hearing when I realised from the attitude of the judge that the appeal would not go my way, and I was already thinking of an Upper Tribunal appeal. I even asked the judge if I have time to pop out for a cigarette when asked to leave the room so they can consider their decision, as I knew their decision was already made.

I would advise you to apply for a full statement of reasons from Tribunals Service. It should explain why they rejected all the medical evidence you provided, and if they fail to do this, you could have grounds for an Upper Tribunal appeal.

You have a month from the tribunal's decision to apply and on receiving it, there is no obligation to take the appeal further if you don't want to.

Regards

Derek

Hi Sig

Im sorry to hear your news, I must admit, its depressing to continually hear such events , not just on the forum, but also the progaganda spread by the papers , along with the same news of other through other sources suffering this same fate - May I ask your condition ?, as in particular those with mental illnesses seem to be suffering more then Most.

Regards

The same thing happened to me sig, i later found out the Doctor on the appeal panel worked in private health, so what does that tell you..!!
They are not impartial, it's just not true, and it's going to get even worse because this Government are on a crusade against the disabled and ill.
If your condition has worsened, then you can re-apply like i did and just start again.
Sorry i dont have anything positive to say sig, but we are all learning the hard way, when it happened to me thats when i finally got the message and realised what a scam it all is..!!
