Pip assessment 16year old
hi. I’m writing on behalf of my friend who has just received medical assessment for her 16yr old son with capita. We wrote on his pip form he wouldn’t be able to attend assessment due to his lack of self confidence caused by all his conditions. The main one is his lqt syndrome heart complaint. The strand he has is triggered by stress which can lead to irregular heart beat and possible cardiac arrest. His two siblings plus his mother all have same condition. She had to purchase two defibs to carry everywhere they go. He also is suffering from migranes and has speech impairment (stutter). He is curtently being monitored for possible me after contracting virus last yr. he spends so much time sleeping it has badly effected his school work. Could anyone advise where we go from here to try to prevent attending medical or if we requested it at his home could his mother speak on his behalf if he was there and didn’t want to answer questions. He is struggling with life last 6 months partly to do with his tiredness and his restrictions on social life due to heart complaint. He is not allowed to swim, play contact sports or involved in anything were he has to exhert himself. Limited to cinema at present but falls asleep during film. We are all at our wits end. Thanks for any tip or advise.
