I had a phone call today from the DLA people to ask if I would take an anonemous medical, planned for the replacement to DLA (PIP personal indepence payment)
Apparently I will get a phone calll from group4 security (thought they ran the prisons) and will have a medical and assessment either at home or at a centre. They say it will all be anon and they need people to help with the planning of the medical and I can see the reasonable idea of helping to perfect a system. But I don't trust them at all so an concerned for me personally and also for giving credence to what could be a pretense at asking our opinions etc.
So, has anyone else been asked, and advice on what to do, for me personally and as a representative of people with DLA.
That is very interesting Wass makes me wonder what they are going to do next. I also wonder if all this malarky is cost effective
I had a similar call today from a lady saying working for G4S it came as a shock out of the blue on a Saturday morning she went on to say they could come to my home or have me attend & there would be a £30 voucher payment, I said I would have to think about it, it seemed they expected me to agree there & then.
I am very suspicous & it seems like others here do not trust "them" I have decided in future to ask any similar callers to put it all in writing, I wanted to reply to the message as although I do not have arthritus problems this forum is the only one I could find which had anything relating to this.
Just been reading a website (pm me for details) regarding benefits and claiming DLA IB etc and their advice seems to be 'no' to going ahead. G4S possibly.........
