Consent to notify a GP/Dr of the outcome of a WCA decision and telling them to no longer provide sick/fit-notes

We're waiting for Frank Zola to read a recent response and update the status.

Dear Department for Work and Pensions,

On your ESA1, ESA50 and UC50 forms you provide an option for claimant's to say they do not want their GP notified of a WCA decision, which you do by using your standard letters UCD90, UCD210 or ESA65B. Can you provide screen-shots, operational instructions and guidance on how you record a claimant that ticks 'No', on these forms, to:

'Consent to notify your GP of the outcome of the Work Capability Assessment'

and how you record on claimant's clerical and digital records that they later wish to
withdraw consent they provided earlier to notify their GP of the outcome of the Work Capability Assessment.

Yours faithfully,

Frank Zola
