Private & Confidential - can it be used as evidence

I’ve thought of an interesting question but can you use letters that say private and confidential for both ESA, UC and PIP?

Is it allowed?

    Of course it's allowed, you can use any evidence you want to. All medical evidence is private and confidential but it doesn't mean you can't share that information with others.
    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.

    Of course it's allowed but make sure it's going to the Department of benefits.
