After many years working in the NHS, my mother was diagnosed with Motor Neurone Disease in November 2016. For money to help pay for her carers, etc, she had to apply for personal independence payment. 

Obviously, as many of you probably know, MND is a terminal illness, and this was noted with all relevant medical professionals. But after all evidence was received by DWP, they insisted on doing an assessment. While doing this, she was made aware they would have to keep assessing her due to the illness being progressive.

unfortunately, we lost my dear mother to the disease in May 2018, but I’ve recently seen the same thing happen to someone else.

so I’m asking you to help me make a change and stop DWP being able to put terminally ill people through this ordeal. Medical evidence should be enough in this instance.

thanks for reading.
