I discovered this FOI by accident and I thought it worth sharing.

They do say the pen is mightier than the sword and the laws are there (sometimes in very small print) but the challenge is there to take for anyone feeling trodden on and anyone who deals with the welfare systems knows all too well that it can be pulled from under out feet at anytime. Sometimes it`s worthwhile reading law and the guidelines surrounding the regulations that they abide by. They make mistakes? We should not sit back and accept defeat.

My ESA85 report had holes all over it and although I highlighted these in my appeal submission, it never occurred to me (although X-M did bring this to my attention recently) that I could and SHOULD have complained officially about the health care professional who did my work capability assessment. I let that ride, when I should have gone further and took them to task for the hell they placed me in. Then I could have chased up the so called (untrained medically) decision maker who basically believed the lies of the HCP and nothing I said in my Mandatory Reconsideration letter. So by them agreeing with the report and not what I had to say, they were just as guilty for disregarding evidence placed before them that led me to appeal the decision.

Good work X-M. I`ve saved this and I think we should all take some time to get to know how we CAN fight back using (1) DWP guidelines and regulations/codes of conduct and (2) do so without involving being dragged to a tribunal.
