    The Black Triangle Campaign...

    I cant download the documents it recommends to give to your G.P. etc but it MAY be helpful - I havent read any of it yet and never even heard of it before.

    " ESA Regulations 29 & 35 deal with flagging up a substantial risk of harm to patients if they were to be found ‘fit for work’ or to have ‘limited capability for work’ and placed in the Work-Related Activity Group (WRAG). However, only the DWP is aware that these regulations can be applied. The vast majority of GPs remain ignorant of them, at grave cost to their patients and indeed, risk to their very lives."
