Capita Sacks Nurse For Facebook Posts Against Claimants

Same Difference

A disability benefits assessor who was suspended after allegedly posting abusive comments about disabled claimants on Facebook has been sacked.

Capita – which assesses claimants for the government – confirmed the nurse was dismissed two weeks ago.

The Facebook posts were found by Sarah Goldstein, 24, who had been turned down for personal independence payments (PIPs) by the nurse.

Husband Jay Goldstein said he was glad “the right thing” had been done.

Mrs Goldstein, who has fibromyalgia, Raynaud’s phenomenon, and suffers with chronic anxiety, migraines and depression, claimed Employment and Support Allowance (ESA) and first applied for PIPs in October 2014.

Mr Goldstein said she had been assessed last year but turned down for PIPs because it was felt she was “making everything up”.

Mrs Goldstein reapplied for PIPs at the end of 2015 and was assessed at her home in Ilkeston, Derbyshire, in March by the nurse.
