Customer: replied 1 year ago.
he was told by the cardiac surgeon that the best thing he could do is to do 20mins exercise a day and to take it easy and keep stress level to a minimum to they find out what was going on and how the stroke was caused.but DWP took no notice of this and basically said no you look ok your fit to work

Yes, I think they are saying that if he is capable of doing that then that is not consistent with his application. The advice he received is a non issue. If he can physically do it then that is a point of issue.He can ask them to reconsider and then appeal their decision to the Tribunal. I'm not sure what his application was for. I suppose DLA. If so, that wouldn't necessarily be engaged by blindness and relative immobility consequent upon a stroke. Some strokes are very serious and some are less serious.He wil get ESA. They won't have been assessing him for that.Can I clarify anything for you?Jo
