having transitioned from high rate dla to pip, I was only awarded standard on both parts causing me to lose the most important aspect in my daily life, my vehicle. I’m so confused as I can’t walk no more than 10metres. I was badly cheated on the assessment process. I attended with my family who look after my full time care needs. I scored 11 points out of 12 for the care component and 10 out of 12 on The mobility. The assessor seen how much distress I was in and opted not to examine me! Yet in her report she has blatantly lied saying she did! My brother was in the room with me. Also there was many contradictions in the final report including the time it takes per week to make me comfortable. The DWP said it takes no more than 3hrs per week. I’ve since sent in proof that it takes just under 2hours per day! This should most certainly improve my score. I sent in testimony from my care givers. An photographic evidence which contains very graphic content just to give them the visual input of the time it actually takes. Also my gp has written a letter explaining that I cannot walk anymore than 10meters! They went off my old dla notes which stated I cud walk up to 30metres. Surely they have no other choice to overturn their original findings. If they don’t then obviously the process is severely flawed!! To lose my lifeline( my car) because of 1 or 2 points is ludicrous.
Kindest Regards, Neil.
