Entire Medical Request

Hi everyone.

Since August last year I have been going through the whole PIP application process and after a MR I got awarded PIP a few weeks ago.

Now, I have just received a letter from my GP asking me for permission to give ATOS my entire medical records. Letter dated 22nd of Feb. Please note this is AFTER I have been awarded PIP a few weeks ago.

I can't understand why they want that?

Or maybe the letter has crossed over and was requested before my award....has anyone ever had this at all?

Thanks
