• I READ of the ordeal of the lady with HIV and the gentlemen who sadly passed away due to the incompetence in assessing his fitness for work (New Journal, January 26).
I had the same problem with those assessors.
I have severe back and leg problems but even with medical proof they deemed me fit for work.
I took my case to a tribunal in Holborn and won. Next time I have to see the so-called health professionals I will be taking a witness with me.
I hope the lady in your report sorts her problems out soon. It would be good if she could go to the same tribunal as I did – they’re very good and sympathetic.
