Petition to stop the DWP telling GPs not to provide sick notes

The department for work and pensions (DWP) are sending doctors misleading letters stating that their patients do not need a “fit note” anymore because they’ve been found fit for work. This letter will leave severely ill and disabled claimants unable to obtain Employment and Support Allowance (ESA) to which they are entitled pending appeal.

This threatens the doctor – patient relationship and puts patients at risk of damaging their health further and leaves them in serious financial difficulties.
