Stop health assessments

Have your say

Junior doctors and GPs constantly tell us they are overworked and understaffed.

Why don’t they press the Government to stop the health assessments for the claimants on Incapacity Benefit and Employment Support Allowance?

It is a point-scoring scheme and if the claimant doesn’t score the points required benefit is stopped and they have to appeal against it.

Just think if these assessments were stopped, all the millions saved could go to the NHS and these people could work in hospitals and GP surgeries instead of employing people from abroad costing more millions.
