    Hello Jilly and welcome
    Can you tell us a liitle more about your situation ?
    Unfortunately it is not uncommon for the HCP report to misrepresent our reality.
    Is this your first claim?
    When did you receive the decision letter ?
    Have you asked for an MR ?
    Be all you can be, make  every day count. Namaste

    Hi @jilly42,

    Welcome to Scope's online community! It's great to have you here.

    As @CockneyRebel asks above, have you asked for a mandatory reconsideration? We have lots of information about appealing a DWP benefits decision on our website which you may find useful, including the following video: 

    I hope this helps. If you have any other questions, then please do get in touch!
