Lost mobility element
hi all,I’m wondering if anyone may be able to offer me some advice,I had to complete a reassessment for my PIP,I was getting high rate mobility,my condition is now worse than when I claimed,I have failed back surgery,due to NHS negligence.I applied for a mandatory reconsideration,I included a copy of a letter from my GP and Physio,stating how bad my mobility is and that I need to be taken out by wheelchair,also stating my pain relief ect?I rang PIP today and they have still refused it!,I’m so upset and angry as I really wouldn’t apply for this benefit unless I genuinely didn’t need it.Im going to appeal,it seems so daunting,yet I have to fight with what little strength I have.My car was returned on the 2nd of January,I’m. It sure how I’m going to be able to get to my physio appointment next week?Im hoping that with a completely new set of people who can see and hear how my disability effects me,they may award my mobility back
