    59 year old failed 2nd medical for ESA after passing first.... 17th Mar 11 at 11:40 PM
    My dad got a letter today after his Atos medical assesment last week and scored 0. Last year he scored 20. He has severe arthritis and walks with a walking stick. So his ESA will stop from today.

    I went with my dad last week for the assesment has my dad does not speak english and I was told that I could not go in with him as a interperter had been booked and there was not enough space in the room, even though we did not request an interperter and also I had taken a day off work to translate for him. The recepionist was very rude and it came across as if they had planned for me to not go in as my dad stated in his form that I would be coming with him. Eventually after a long chat they let me go with him.

    I just wanted to share this experience and get advice to the best way to make my dads appeal as he his in shock, through a solicitor etc. Thanks for any help.
