    They don’t check medical records. During a work capability assessment process they may contact someone like a GP but if they do they are only sent a form to fill in and return. Though, this is rare.
    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.

    The reason I ask is because I had my paperwork for PIP tribunal turn up and there is a letter from WCA and it says a diagnosis I never said anything about on the letter

    Sometimes they will send information from another benefit claim such as the WCA. It’s not about a diagnosis anyway.
