    I don't get how this works I find it strange that isn't it government that decides if you get Pip or not if they say no it goes to a tribunal so a Court sees it. isn't the court part of the government and more likely to side with them? I may be way off but not sure how it works

    The tribunal is independent, usually a doctor, judge and disability person, if I’m correct.
    hense why 69% of tribunals win.
    the tribunal is recorded.
    they ask questions and you answer, I’d advise just answer the question asked

    Hell and thanks for reading  post so been though  process up to tribunal  .first tribunal was adjourned  as there was no medical  records and was a rep from dwp that suggested we stop as i didnt have a rep.

    Second tribunal was hard work judge was asking medical  questions  and getting very agitated  that i replied.as am a vetran and was represented  by ssafa rep from cab judge was focused on my military service.

    Hopefully you won the tribunal paul67,
    did the judge think your service was why you were appealing?? You should speak again to your rep to see if they think taking it to upper tribunal is possible

    Didnt win  still waiting on letter looking at either setting aside  or upper tribunal  if error in law.rep felt that judge was as i thought, on offensive  from start and he has been at a  alot of tribunals he says this was questioned  me hard . Ecen tough 2 letters from my Gp, Neurological  consultant and full spine mri and knee reports .

    And the fact we use term win and lose is wrong seems we go along to these tribunals to prove we arent lying.shouldnt feel or be this way .

    I wish you the best of luck getting a set aside
    only other thing I can think of is if you have a new or worstened condition put in a change of circumstance
