Update 19.02.18

Today, by recorded delivery, I have sent to Bradford, my appeal form SSCS1, together with mandatory reconsideration notice and couple of old Dr’s reports and an OT report.

I’ve still not received any papers from DWP of my SAR (form SANTA01) or from my GP as per # 17 above.

All it remains now is to receive Tribunal notification. 

Thank you @Matilda and others who've given me an inspiration to go and file for an appeal.

How long before the court replies ?

    UPDATE

    Just to let you know that after sending my appeal to the tribunal I received a letter from the Courts that they have received my papers and the court has sent copies to DWP. Then out of the blue I’ve received a text message from DWP

    “WE’VE RECEIVED THE WRITTEN REPORT OF YOUR PIP ASSESSMENT. WE WILL WRITE TO YOU ONCE WE’VE MADE A DECISION ON YOUR PIP. AS A GUIDE YOU SHOULD HEAR FROM US WITHIN 4 WEEKS. YOU DON’T NEED TO CONTACT US UNLESS ANY OF THE DETAILS YOU GAVE US HAVE CHANGED. THANK YOU.” 

    Can anyone help what this means?

    Sounds as if maybe the txt was sent in error, but as it reads it gives the impression that a desision will be made by DWP and not the courts. I would ring them up and see what they see it a free call so sit comfortably and wait till your call is answered mine was 48 minutes last time I called you have nothing to loose and may give you peace of mind.
