my dla for high mob and low care ends this june and i completed the forms with a dla advisor but i have been turned down for both because i had a medical ordered by jobcentre with atos. The decision was made because at the atos medical ,to see if i can work, it was recorded i said i can stand for 20mins and wak for 45mins.This atos medical was done in june 2012,i want to work and went to the medical happy to work if i can find work i can really do, this was the context of my comment to the Doctor at that medical.
I now been refused dla because it is judged what was recorded then contridicts with the information i gave on the dla form ie thai cannot walk more than 50m wthout discomfort and pain and cannot stand for 20mins without discomfort and pain.
Since the atos medical the problems with my spine havr got worse and the comments i said at the atos medical are being taken out of context
and i was not made aware that the atos medical would have a direct bearing on my dla claim.
I feel iam being discriminated against because i gave a positive desire to want to work and this is being wrongly used to take away my dla which in fact could make it impossible to get to work as i cannot use public transport and will no longer be able to afford to run my car.
lok foward to your reply
