Who's Cheating Who?

Mark Daly investigates new government plans to end the UK's sicknote culture by getting a million people off benefits and back to work. We reveal how, in Britain's modern welfare state, private companies are paid billions to carry out medical assessments on claimants to determine if they are fit for work, and ask if they are putting profits before welfare. The film hears claims that patients across Scotland with severe mental illness and cancer are being denied benefits and told they must find a job.
