LETTERS: Chatteris reader's anger over benefits system
I totally agree with John Smithee’s recent letter. I myself have been fighting the DWP and Secretary of State and overturning their decisions so many times over the last 15 years.
Not only the wasted time but the cost, with my GP and the NHS responding to Access Data Requests and producing medical reports for the DWP and Capita etc.
However, this cost is inflicted by the DWP’s fast track system. After every reassesment or tribunal, the DWP wait six months and then shred all the paperwork as they do not keep an archive to refer back too.
