21 year old with brain tumours declared ‘Fit for Work’ by Department of Work & Pensions | Nye Bevan News


Mum Rita Curtis, 47, said Philip’s tumours were first diagnosed when he was 11 years old and since had three removed and two vents put in his head.

“He was getting these headaches and he had to be taken home from school and would go to bed. He would be vomiting.

He’s had a lot of surgery. As well as the initial biopsy, he’s had three tumours removed and two vents in his head. There’s been five operations over the last couple of years.

FROM LAST JULY WHEN DWP STOPPED HIS MONEY I’VE HAD TO SUPPORT HIM ON MY PART-TIME NIGHT WORKER’S PAY.

I’m paying my mortgage, utilities, and looking after his needs as a carer and I’m on my own.

It’s very stressful because in between working and caring for Philip I’ve got to help him with all the paperwork.

  1. What is the intentions of the DWP, do they care?

    It is as though the DWP wish to punish claimants and their families for daring to endeavour to claim benefits.

    When will the DWP punishment regime finish, perhaps when there are no claimants as the claimants will have died due to the DWP regime.
