PIP Tribunal-just received my pack!

Hi everyone,
I have taken the DWP to tribunal for refusal to renew my PIP award after video consultation and MR. 
Today I received my pack which is about an inch thick!
can anyone give me any advice as what to do now….
i haven’t had a date yet but I am finding it all very overwhelming. 
I can’t believe what I am reading from the healthcare professional that I had for my video assessment. 
I’m at my wits end. 
Any advice would be so welcome. 
Thank you.

    Heya @sticks72 I'm sorry to hear things are a bit overwhelming for you, I can totally empathise! 
    The best thing to do is have a read through the report and make notes of where the errors lie, what they are and what the actual reason is. I find marking the pages with little post-its really helps there. 

      The waiting really is the worst part, the tribunal itself will be so much different than the assessment so please try not to worry.  We're all here to offer support when you need it. :)

    Thanks Albus, 
    I will start to go through it and make notes and try to formulate them into some kind of statement. I’ve read that it’s best to do that and then send a copy to them before hand. 
    Hopefully common sense will prevail 🤞
    thanks again!

    Hi Albus,
    sorry to bother you,
    I’ve been doing as you say, going through mainly the notes from the assessment and I’m noticing most of what I need to correct is mostly in my MR. 
    There are some errors and some blatant BS, so do I just basically re write my MR as my statement and then send that through as evidence?
    thanks, Sticks.
