Alex is a former RAF police dog handler, currently waiting for a heart transplant, and kept alive by a machine woven through his ribs to a pump in his heart. He was assessed as fit for work. Alex says, “I feel like my integrity and honesty is being questioned. I did not want to claim benefits anyway, but I did so out of necessity.” Following reinstatement of his benefits at a tribunal, he says, “It puts a huge strain on you when you already have a massive health problem.”
