originally awarded lifetime full mobility award 10 years ago and lowest benefit for health. 2 years ago I was reassessed by Capita and received the highest mobility award and medium benefit level.
i suffer from Arthritis in both knees and fused ankle. 3 weeks ago I had left tkr.
Whilst I was in hospital I had a letter asking for another face to face review . How often are reassessments done.
sadly I had major problems 9 days after tkr and was readmitted to hospital and due to warfarin I had to have it reopened and all the clots washed out. I’m basically starting again with Physio.
i spoke to Capita and they said that although I’m entitled to home visit, none are available so if I don’t attend their offices I lose my benefits.
Seems very unfair
