Pip points

[Deleted User][Deleted User] Posts: 10 Connected
Hi,

My wife just received the enhanced awards for both parts.
The points were 13 for part A and 16 for part B. When reading the points total for eating and drinking she got awarded 0 points despite medical evidence that she should not under any circumstances eat or drink without supervision as most times I have to clear blockages to enable her to breath. Is it worthwhile asking for the PA4 or is it best left alone. This may sound funny but my wife was more upset that they had not recognised that than if she had been denied the PIP.

    Hi

    Well done to you both for getting enhanced PIP.

    I would request a copy of the assessment report, for your information and future review.

    I would leave matters alone and concentrate on making your lives as comfortable as possible.

    Best wishes
