There are some dangerous, disablist attitudes in these assessment offices, readers. This is mainstream madness at its best!
I just got the medical report from my ATOS PIP assessment and the nurse who wrote it has written in the section for taking nutrition, “She looked overweight therefore it is reasonable to assume that she can take nutrition independently,”. as it happens I can and I did expect to get points on this, but I am thinking that a nurse should know better than to write this since i could easily need help to take nutrition and still be overweight. I thought it to be medically incompetient and demeaning and am I thinking about a complaint to the professional body.
