i received a phone call today off atos for a medical, i stopped getting esa at the end of april, i was in the NI based esa, i have had no money off esa since then losing 99 pounds a week. I have appealed that i should be in the support group because of my ostio artheritis, i last saw my specialist in 2010 who confirmed i had the condition and supplied me with a leg brace, i didnt know there were different groups of ESA until mine got stopped because i had received it for 12 months. I have read horrible reports about these ATOS medicals, can anyone give me advice about the medical? Has anyone else here gone through the same thing as me, getting nothing and trying to get in the support group? Its as if they dont believe my specialists medical report that i have sent to the DWP. I get the higher rate of DLA surely they can check the records of that medical can they not? Thanks guys any advice would be much appreciated.
