Can I appeal only the daily living side of PIP?
Hi, my partner has recently had a face to face for PIP. He has COPD and is on a lot of medication for it. He is also on medication for anxiety/depression. He was awarded enhanced mobility but was not awarded daily living side of it. I have already been through the mandatory appeal but has still been refused for it. He is unable to dress or undress himself, cook his own food and has to be prompted to eat and I have to physically give him his medication or he will not take it. Can I appeal only the daily living side without the mobility side being looked at again? I had to give up work due to my partners health and also have 2 children look after. Any help and advice will be much appreciated. Thanks.
