I’m fuming on your behalf my friend.
We, the sick and disabled, really must vocalise ourselves (as you do) and publicise the treatment we get from these unqualified assessors overruling fully trained medical professionals such as our Consultants, Emergency Doctors, GPs, Nurses, Physio’s,Mental Health Teams etc.
