  • More than 100 people per day with mental health problems have benefits sanctioned

    Mo Stewart's comment 03 Feb 2015 1:52am

    Oh dear. Comments from Anonymous at 5.39pm are demonstrating frustration are they not?
    On a related subject, I am a former healthcare professional now engaged with research. I have been invited to conduct some as yet unreported consequences of the (savage) welfare 'reforms' in that anecdotal evidence suggests that significant numbers of patients who have a long-term serious physical health problem are developing the onset of mental health problems due to the relentless DWP reviews for benefits for a health condition that can't improve. The constant threat of being removed from the benefit needed for survival is paramount.
    To conduct the research I need 20 minutes of a GP's time for a telephone survey. Any GP s happy to co-operate with what may be valuable research should please contact me at: in the first instance.
    To view previous research please Google 'Mo Stewart'
    Many thanks.

    Many congratulations to Stephen Carty.

    This is well deserved for a doctor who has gone out of his way to protect patients from the confirmed avoidable harm of the entirely bogus Work Capability Assessment, and to support BTC in their significant efforts to expose the tyranny behind these government imposed 'assessments'.

  • Peverley’s attack on benefit claimants was wrong-headed - and having worked for Atos, I should know

    The Atos WCA was designed in consultation with Unum Insurance, an American corporate giant with a disturbing reputation and identified by the American Association of Justice as the 2nd worst insurance company in America. The question remains as to why the British national press refuse to expose the links between the WCA and corporate America, as described in research evidence published by the Centre for Disability Studies:

  • Why GPs must be free to speak out

    Mo Stewart's comment 12 May 2013 6:59pm

    This is only the start. As a former healthcare professional, and now a researcher in Cambridge, this latest GMC attempt to limit GPs making anonymous comment is the preamble to the privatisation of the State health care service.
