    Hi Mick and welcome

    You can ask but they are not obliged to tell you. It is up to you whether you ask but it may antagonise an HCP. Their qualification will be on the assessment report which you should request 2-3 days after

    PIP is a functionality test which in theory could be done by a semi trained monkey.

    HCP's are only required to complete a course on disability assessment, the legislation does not even require them to be medically qualified.

    Good luck with your assessment
