End of story- Cancer patients to face work tests

So the government have made it clear, they intend assessing those suffering cancer and going through serious cancer therapies including the intravenous treatments, really all this adds up to is that short of death no one shall be found fit to work end of story.

Where did you get this information, JLRRAC?  I understood those receiving cancer treatment were exempt from assessment, or was I confusing it with terminally ill cancer patients?

How on earth is a cancer patient expected to work, if they go through x amount of treatments, y amount of days / weeks? And then there's the recovery time.

Not being funny; but I wouldn't want to employ someone who needs that amount of time off.
