Incapacitated on Radio 4
We wanted to draw your attention to a 30 minute Radio 4 documentary, investigating incapacity benefit.
Incapacitated sees Dr Ben Goldacre explore "the parlous state of the incapacity benefits system, an eight billion pound legacy created by party politics and unthinking medics."
In the light of a tough new benefits system for sick and disabled people, "Ben discovers that, after being on incapacity benefit for more than two years, you are statistically more likely to die or retire than ever find work again. He asks how this can have been allowed to happen and considers whether the new government plans will help."
Incapacitated will be available on Iplayer after it has been broadcast on 10 November at 8 PM..
