Hi

I’m worried about my PIP review yesterday morning

I had changed it from a face to face

Brief background on my claim

March 2021 - Claim started 
September 2021 - Awarded 3 years February 2024 - 8 points Daily Living 
Washing Bathing - Dressing undressing -
Engage with people face to face -
Making budgeting decisions  - 


June 2023 - Review form arrived 

July 2023 - Sent back to DWP - I ticked ‘ No Change ‘  on question that i scored points on in 2021 - As there was no change it may well have deteriorated over time 
I was suffering with a chronic episode of my diagnosis on numerous occasions

Due to my ongoing episodes I was suffering both the physical mental  
traits to the extent of hallucinations ( Both Audio and Visual ) seizures losing my balance vertigo 
All this will be documented in my hospital notes from the
hospital  - Chapman and Barker Unit


August I was taken
hospital via ambulance ( 999 ) call I was after triage moved on to a ward 
Then I was transferred by ambulance to Chapman and Barker Unit Manchester for a medical detox as a inpatient 


NHS - Diagnosis F10.2 Mental and behaviour disorder due to use of alcohol - Alcohol dependence syndrome confirmed primary diagnosis date ( 27/08/23 )
When I was discharged from hospital I self referred myself  back to Achieve ( Greater Manchester Mental Health ) and I’m still under their care


I said I go to Achieve 3/4 times a week which first off it isn’t true and if it was true it as far as I can understand wouldn’t make any difference


As like I do to any appointments being dropped off and picked up - I would see the same person also

It was lady actually who did bring it to my attention to which I saidI was confused and it wasn’t true -

BUT I’m so worried stressed


What should I do please if anything

Obviously the PA4

But do I ring the DWP to explain?

The lady did say 8 weeks I would have to wait -

I did send some other information to the DWP 13/06/24

Diagnosis from the NHS

Also answering the questions I scored points on last time. Also 2 other questions I may score points on all in the daily living category

Also Court summons for council tax

Water bills to show my troubles with budgeting and understanding complex issues

Sorry it’s so long
