Petition Give GP's The Power To Veto Work Capability Assessment (WCA) Decisions

More details

That General Practitioners (GPs) be given the power to veto a Work Capability Assessment (WCA) 'fit for work' decision, where they genuinely believe that their patient is not ready, or fit enough, to (re)enter a workplace environment and where being pushed into work is likely to have a detrimental effect on their patients future health, safety and/or general well-being, or that of workplace colleagues.
