Hi, my husband had a triple heart by pass 2 weeks ago, Friday 11th March 2016. He is still poorly but 100 times better than he was, surgeon said it would take approx 3 months for his chest wound to recover. He has a 3 month sick note from doctors and registered this with DWP, he's received two payments then was told to needed to attend a medical with them, prior to his operation. We then received a letter to say they work on a points system now and he a score of zero, he would be taken off sick pay and put on job seekers allowance ! (Who would employ a man that was waiting to have a triple by pass). He has appealed against this but a month later we still have heard nothing. As he is a contractor he receives no pay when he is not at work, I put a prescription in at the chemist today but had to pay as the girl behind the counter said he may not be entitled to free prescriptions. Can any one please point me in the right direction for help, we have tried out local MP to no a avail ?.
