HI I have been given a appointment to have a health assessment .I informed them that I was suffering from panick attacks and could not leave the house due to anxiety and asked if I could have a home visit .was informed by DWP I needed a letter of my GP stating this and they would look at a home visit. I got the GP letter that says I was suffering from panic attacks and not able to leave the house due to anxiety symptoms. I have now just received a letter saying my request for a home visit has been refused due to the medical evidence they have received.my question is is this normal and can the DWP override a GP .looks like DWP have made a decision to throw me of benefit before health assessment has been taken .anyone had this happen to them?????
