John Pring's Disability News Roundup - Shockers!


  1. NHS 'cover-up' unacceptable - Hunt and the same goes for those that have died and continue to die through the welfare reform bill in which he conveniently forgot to add but i can ensure him is a ticking time bomb

  2. Thalidomide survivors can have every ounce of my support in their compensation claims. My second cousin Lee was affected by thalidomide. He has certain disabilities, like half-legs and half arms. When we were children we all played together and wow! Was Lee a great laugh. He would let us ride in his mobility chair, which we thought was as much fun as a go-kart and he used to use his arm, which ended at the elbow, as a light-saber and fight us with it, lol. He was also very fast across the floor in a race, using his backside to bounce along, great fun. His main problem was wearing his false-legs, as they rubbed on his knees and made it painful for him to walk. I would love it if Lee, his Mum and people who have thalidomide, get compensation they deserve so much.

  3. Atos overuling GPs on sick claimants’ requests for visits

    ATOS healthcare is rejecting requests for home assessments even if a claimant’s GP supports one.

    Asked “why Atos Healthcare can refuse a home visit for work capability assessments, even when a GP supports an application,” the Benefits Minister Nelson McCausland said Atos’ own health expert can disregard a GP’s opinion and demand claimants show up at local test centres. ... XQ.twitter

  4. Atos have been proved negligent and incompetent and that the government still spend tax payers' money hiring these murderers is nothing short of an atrocity... "Atos" "atrocity" hmmm. This whole assessment system is pointless given there are no jobs for these people anyway.

  5. I recently came across your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first
    comment. I dont know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog.
    I will keep visiting this blog very often.
