Just watching this and they showed a young female with fibromyalgia and they said....

No it doesnt cause this its chronic stiffness and widespread pain :banghead: :banghead: :banghead: :banghead:

She must have had Ehlers Danlos syndrome type 3 too, they go hand in hand quite a bit it seems.

I watched both, made me angry!! Awful system.

You need to go bug and if you get the wrong answer appeal, I watched them both Chris Grayling sat and denied over and over about targets but its been shown constantly that targets do exist and those not meeting them are penalised. Things are being highlighted so much that something has to stick somewhere :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll:

Makes me laugh how you heard they have targets and how they themselves view the medical plus the crack down on the doctors whom do the medicals if they pass too many!!! then they try and worm out of it ! :face-slap:

Both programs highlighted the same flaws but from different perspectives so how they can say its fit for purpose is beyond me :yikes: :yikes: :yikes: :yikes: :yikes: :yikes:
