I shall soon be representing my sister at a tribunal. She is 60 years of age. She has had three operations on her spine, two at neck level and one, a spinal fusion, in her lower back. As a result of the operations on her neck she can't lift her arms above her head. As a result of the operation on her lower back she walks with crutches and can no longer drive. As she is now permanently on morphine she is often very confused.<br /><br />Believe it or not, she is held to be fit for work and has to attend at the job centre. We are not appealing this decision for money but simply to stop the trips to the job centre which cause her pain and distress.<br /><br />I just wonder where they get the idiots who make these decisions.
