Appeal DWP and providing evidence
I have just received the pack of papers from DWP as they are asking for my appeal to be refused. They recently lowered my mobility from enhanced to standard and after failing at the MR stage I have lodged an appeal. I would appreciate a little help if anyone can advise me. They have based their decision on an assessment and GP/medical evidence from 2014 (the assessor stated wrongly that I have not seen a doctor since then!). The decision to give me enhanced mobility used the same medical evidence and when I went from DLA to PIP using this evidence my award stayed the same after a face to face assessment. Sorry, i am not explaining this very well. My question is, as Capita and DWP have failed to use up to date medical evidence is it my responsibility to get this from my GP? Also, if I do get this do I send it to the DWP or the tribunal service? Thankyou
