    I would get your gp and consultant to write a letter ASAP explaining that you've had a mini stroke and can't attend ,so sorry to hear your bad news and I hope you will get a new appeal date soon.

    Sorry Steve51 I'm not too sure how this site works bit confused where my messages are going yes they put me on medication I don't know if you got my last message I haven't got a clue what I'm doing on here.
