Kidney dialysis patient says he is a victim of benefit cuts
WATCH THE INTERVIEW WITH LEE HERE:
A former soldier who only has one kidney has been told he’s got to go back to work or he’ll lose his benefits.
Lee Dunlop, who travels from West Somerset to Bristol three times a week for dialysis because of a disease affecting his remaining kidney, says no employer would want him.
Lee also believes the government’s drive to get more people like him off benefits is unfair.
The Department for Work and Pensions says it won’t comment on individual cases.
His family say that they think he is a victim of the government’s attempt to get more people off benefits.
