    Hi @fedup2024, welcome to the community :) I don't think that should be an issue, they do sometimes get evidence from GPs. I don't know the timeframes I'm afraid :/ 

    Do keep us informed though, if anything does happen we can help you with appealing a decision against you :)
    They/Them, however they are no wrong pronouns with me so whatever you feel most comfortable with

    All my sick notes for the past 20 years has been about my knees and mental health  so this should be okay? And thankyou should I ring them or wait for response? 

    Thankyou for getting back to me

    That sounds like it will certainly back up what you've put @fedup2024. But, if the DWP do decide otherwise, we are here to help support your appeal!
