Sorry to be the bearer of more bad news but these changes affect every single physically disabled, mentally/learning disabled and every other unwell/ill person.

The DWP are making some "minor" changes to the criteria for the WCA. Apparently only physical or mental symptoms will be considered, not both. Also they are expanding the "imaginary wheelchair" (not a joke name) to include imaginary guide dogs, prosthesis and medication!

The DWP though claim it's just to remove confusion??
