Mild memory problems and DVLA not allowing me to drive despite GP saying otherwise

Does anyone have any useful information regarding driver medical group DVLA. Very briefly I was diagnosed with mild memory problems around three years ago. The extent of the problem is confined to perhaps mislaying something or forgetting the odd appointment and providing I maintain some lifestyle changes it is unlikely to progress. The DVLA have repeatedly refused me a driving license first citing medication as the issue and then after changing the medication citing memory problems. This is despite both my G.P. and my Consultant Psychiatrist stating I am fit to drive. I cannot appear to get anywhere with them and cannot afford to appeal via the legal system due to cost. I feel like I am a prisoner in my own home and I also have a physically disabled partner who could really benefit from me driving. Any suggestions would be welcomed.
