My mother Ruby Urbacz age 59 was found dead at her home on the 6th September as a result of a heart attack. She had been admitted to hospital a 01/08/15 for chest pains where they found she had had three minor heart attacks. Even though my mother had poor mobility , type 2 diabetes, very basic numeracy and literacy skills and mental health problems including depression, she was deemed “fit for work” by the DWP. She was put on JSA and hounded to show evidence of looking for a job she struggled to write a shopping list and thus constantly worried about money and if her benefits would be stopped.

Her benefits were stopped without without any investigation as she missed her jsa appointment whilst in hospital, after her discharge she had received no money for five consecutive weeks of the £50 per week she would have normally received she was also paying £20 per week in bedroom tax. On only £30 per week She could not afford to feed herself properly as bills were her main priority, so was living off food bought from poundland which obviously worsened her diabetes.
She was getting carer visits from the red cross.

After her discharge from hospital. On the the 4th September the carers notes say “Ruby is worried about money, still waiting for benefits to be sorted.” She died less than 48hours later.

I’m writing this not because I want sympathy but to make you aware that Ian Duncan Smith’s policies are directly contributing to the deaths of the most vulnerable people in our society.

Please do not comment with sympathetic messages as this will not change anything, instead share this post and make as many people aware of the contemptuous nature of our self serving government who punish the poor and give to the rich.
Thank you for sharing.

    https://welfaretales.wordpress.com/2015/09/19/his-diabetic-mother-was-found-dead-in-her-home-after-being-sanctioned-for-being-in-hospital-with-heart-problems/ This disgusting Tory government and the inhumane Smith are all guilty of both manslaughters and murders and need for these sick vile evil people to be arrested and charged with these crimes, I hope to god that someone has the balls to take out Smith as he is the sick twisted evil man behind the hate and the way all disabled people are being treated by this sick job centres and the corrupt DWP. Also it must be a crime when these private companies like maximus have spread admitted that they are told to find genuine disabled people fit to work even if they are not, is it no wonder that this corrupt government will not let patients own fully qualified drs to their medical assessments as they will do them genuine and this is not what Cameron and co want, this is clear corruption, manipulation and also manslaughter and possibly even murder, these things could be stopped if all medicals were only ever done by patients own drs as they know all about the medical history of a person, plus this would be cheaper than using private 2nd rate foreign firms like both ATOS and now Maximus who are not at all medically trained, all these scum need to know is how to tell lies. This government are deliberately killing off the disabled and sick, by actually committing fraud because that is what they are telling these private firms to do to genuine disabled people, please send this information on to local mps and the newspapers as well as human rights groups as it I time Cameron was arrested and charged with corruption and fraud the same with the mass murderer Smith as well as Patel, the job centres and the corrupt DWP. Benefit sanctions must be stopped and all disabled people must be treated with care and compassion and put first over everyone else but on a par with British pensioners, yet another story that shows befit sanctions are costing us disabled our lives because without money you are screwed.

    This is just despicable. Having recently developed a severe heart condition myself on top of everything else, you have to make sure that you care for yourself, eat well, slow down, and avoiding any stress is an absolute essential. I only opened a letter with my appointment for the cardiac unit and had an attack; nightmares can have the same affect.

    I’d like to know why this lady wasn’t under the care of social services? I thought that ill people weren’t discharged from hospital unless they were sure that support was in place, both physical and financial?

    More blood on the hands of this government!
