DWP tells man with incurable brain tumour he is fit for work, says GP

Writing for The Independent, the Birmingham GP explains how one of her patients suffers daily headaches and is undergoing a regime of chemotherapy and radiotherapy in order to prolong his life. Though his brain tumour condition is incurable and the treatment leaves him tired and with serious side effects, Dr Ali said he was found fit for work and ineligible for employment and support allowance (ESA) after an assessment.
