Why Shouldn't They Require Medical Proof...?

The council also waited to receive medical proof of Y’s health issues, despite the fact there was strong evidence to suggest Y was suffering high levels of anxiety.
Given they are spending taxpayers money, I'd expect them to require proof!

What’s the medical proof for a diagnosis of anxiety? Dr: “How do you feel?” Patient: “Anxious”. Job done.

Similar problems elsewhere, e.g. claims for disability benefits for back pain. It’s really hard to diagnose something which doesn’t present physical symptoms. The govt seems to have decided that making the process as arduous as possible is the only way of filtering out the chancers.

It's the new 'Oooh, me back!', isn't it?
