Dear Department for Work and Pensions,
Can you please supply me with the documentation highlighting the directions that state that Service Users are only now allowed only one cancellation of their DWP medical examination, before they are referred back to the DWP,for the individual to account for the reason they have not attended their medical examination?
Can you supply me with the reason why the DWP have now brought out the rules that Service users can only have one cancellation pertaining to their Medical Examination?
Why does the DWP consider that it is acceptable for Service users to only have one cancellation of their Medical examination? some of the Service users are suffering from some very debilitating and life threatening conditions, why can the Department Not be more flexible with regards to sometimes very ill individuals instead of using bullying tactics with regards to BENEFIT SANCTIONS?
