Posted on Twitter by an NHS GP:
When a distraught mother has lost her young daughter, please can you tell me why you wont accept “grief reaction” as a sick note diagnosis? Telling a grieving mum this is not an illness is extremely insensitive. You have also wasted NHS time.
3 days after her daughter died, she got call from the DWP saying did she realise she couldn’t claim Attendance Allowance anymore & had to sign on Job Seekers. Mother panicked & found herself at a job interview the following week – at which she broke down in tears.
She phoned me in a state on way home from the interview. I was horrified they had put her through this. I’m so upset by it all.
Welcome to Theresa May’s Britain.
