PIP medical VS ESA medical
hi guys, ive got my first PIP assessment coming up this week , never had one before as i didn't know i could apply to claim it, I'm already in receipt of ESA support group. I have always had lots and lots of trouble with ESA medicals where the paperwork is full of lies contradictions and just plain bizarre comments, I get found fit for work end up doing mandatory reconsideration , get a random phone call and get told I am back in the support group, this has basically been the same routine for the last 6 or 7 years , its been a nightmare and definitely affected my health for the worse. I am worried now about the PIP assessment being the same, my health has deteriorated a lot in the last few months ive sent off medical evidence and have some extra new evidence i can take with me , So whats everyones experience? is it the same as ESA for the lies and general cynical money grabbing from the HCP' finding everyone fit for work?
