TOPIC: ESA Tribunral

ESA Tribunral 8 years 2 weeks ago #56904

Hello everyone, I had my tribunral yesterday, and to all of you waiting for yours, stay calm and be yourself.
Last year Atos awarded me 6 points for walking, , now the trubunral based on how I was last August have awarded me 18 points for my osteoarthritis, I am over the moon, to have won, with thanks to Benefits and Work and my citizens advice , also my doctors letter. I was in the tribunral 25 minutes, they were very nice , to the point and allowed me to have my say, which I did telling them the atos doctor was economical with the truth. I was also asked did I feel I was worse than last yera, to which I said yes, last year was awful this year as its a degenerative disease I am worse. All in all I am happy to be in the work related group, even though its only 18 months until I am eligible for my state pension. So chin up all of you, it can and does happen in our favour. I am of course aware that I will be asked to another atos medical, but will be ready for them next time, I did not say enough at the first medical,
