Labour introduced this monstrous assessment system back in 2008. How long will it take for the Scottish (and English) government to scrap these so called assessments and place them into the hands of REAL medical experts who don`t expect a cash payment by results farce? The UK government has recently announced that `some` claimants won`t be expected to undergo more ESA tests in the future, but we all know that means the vast majority will and only those (rightly so) who are bed ridden and require 24 hour care should be totally exempt. But this should also apply to people (like myself) who have tried very hard over the last 15 years to get a diagnosis and a control over pain and have not (so far) achieved it. Having a `chronic` illness can also mean how long is a piece of string in terms of being listened to.
