Hello All After 15 months and a Appeal for unemployability ive been told im being sent as i live abroad to a overseas medical board ! can anyone tell what this is and if they have had any experience of this thanks
As far as I'm aware DWP/WP/ATOS will have contracted a local Health Care Professional to conduct a medical assessment (NOT an examination) according to the criteria they set and will have supplied the forms for the HCP to use.
Under no circumstances refuse the assessment. Ask the HCP to confirm their identity to you (ID card or passport) and ask for their medical qualifications (they may refuse to tell you them as they are not required to do so).
Again, under no circumstances sign their paperwork unless it is fully completed in front of you (in case they add things/change things later).
