Doctors' advice ignored by politicians

The doctors' professional association, British Medical Association, is the latest organisation to call for the Employment and Allowance Work Capability Assessment to be scrapped.  They rightly describe it harmful to vulnerable people and "accusatory".

You can read their comments here.

Shortly after, Citizens Advice reports a surge in people seeking advice about ESA appeals - at a time when funding for advice agencies is being cut back.

Like patients who are too obsessed and arrogant to have any insight into their health-damaging behaviour,  I doubt that any national politicians will be taking the doctors' advice.
