It seems we all have worked on some rough estates, the one I used tomike said:I've heard the same complaint about ESA med boards as every other though
the % failing seems higher. The principal of the DWP DM overruling the
GP etc based on their own examination is the key one and that's been
going on for a long long time.
One of the hsg estates I used to visit was described as one of the most
deprived in the country and qualified for some scheme or other for
regeneration. Some of the others were not much better, including the
one I grew up on.
visit had a reputation as being one of the very worst in London with
murders and shootings on a regular basis. Many of the tower blocks on
that estate have since been knocked down and replaced by more modern
housing but the estate is still riddled with problems (and bullets).
