    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).
