TOPIC: "Parked"!

"Parked"! 9 years 6 days ago #18330

:) HI there,

Had my first interview as part of the five compulsory ones for being placed in the "fit to work" group. Well how bizarre! Took ages to park and find the blooming place - not very Disability friendly access but did not deter me!

Anyway saw women at training place and after 5 minutes max. She "deferred" me on their system for 6months until "I might feel a little brighter about it all". Gobsmacked that she could clearly see how bad I was yet Atos doctor clearly could not!

Got outside and I explained to my very happy husband that this was exactly what youhad warned about only a few days before! Parking and Creaming! Well am "parked" till September at mo!

Am guessing I am not alone in this! Yet why can I not be put into the "Support Group"????????????!!!!

Hi louise,

I wish i could give a satisfactory answer to that question. It really is the most bizarre system.

Good luck,

I've had my 6 sessions and now I think I've been parked... anyone know what happens next...? :unsure:

Hi Tommo,

In all probability nothing until your award is next reviewed.


Re:"Parked"! 9 years 4 days ago #18436

I'm wondering when it's going to be reviewed Steve, ?

Re:"Parked"! 9 years 4 days ago #18446

Hi Tommo,

The intention is that everyone on ESA will be reviewed at last annualy.
