PIP Assessor

edited October 2023 in PIP, DLA, and AA
I had my assessment by phone on Tuesday after an hour and 5 mins they ended the call. On wed I got a call from my GP saying she needed to see me today for a review. I thought it was about my back as Im still waiting for an MRI app.  When I got to  the doctors she said she had received an email from the assor saying that she wanted the doctor to see me about my mental health. Is this a good thing or a bad thing? I've already received my text from DWP to say they received the assors report on wed. Anyone else had this.

    I filled the form in for both. I have had 2 lots of back surgery  2 lumber decompressions and spinal fusion and are now waiting for an MRI because I thought my hip was going but the doctor seems to think its to do with my back. My mobility is bad. My mental health goes back since 2010 but I had a bad bout in 2017 and was on medication. But last year I stopped taking the medication (personal reason) I was in a really bad place. but after seeing the doctor today I have agreed to start taking them again and also agreed to see a counceler.

    You can ring them to ask what you’ve been awarded and they will tell you. They will also tell you when to expect any money owed into your bank. 
    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.
