We have had a number of people contacting us recently saying that they have asked their doctor to write a letter stating that they need a home visit for a benefit assessment and the doctor has refused.
Others have told us that their GP has refused to issue them a Fit Note
We are very concerned about this, and we want to make representations to the Royal College of GP s and other medical professional bodies about it.
But to do that we need evidence of how widespread a problem this is for claimants. So we need your help. If a doctor has refused to write a letter for you, or refused to issue you a Fit Note, or has even complained about having to do it, could you please let us know by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
