    Hi

    Im not sure but think possibly.
    I had my first f2f last year after 2years without any.
    Id contact CAB or ask her mental health professional to help fill the forms in. 
    Sorry I can’t give you a proper answer

    Hi ourbilly and welcome

    Everyone that claims PIP is subject to review or reassessment and in many cases a f2f is required.
    PIP is a test of functionality and the assessment is just about how functionality is affected it is not a medical.

    It is always a good idea to get trained help with the forms whether it is a review form or a new application
