    Hi,

    You'll need to bring ID, have a read of the letter and it states what ID you'll need to bring. Wear what you always wear when you go out. My advice, don't do or wear anything different to what you always do. Answer those questions with as much information as possible, if you can. If you can't do something that will cause you pain then you'll need to tell them you can't do and the reason why. 

    Take someone with you if possible. They won't be able to answer any questions unless they're your appointee but it will help with any anxiety you have. 

    Evidence should have already been sent with the form. They rarely contact anyone for this and the onus is on you to make sure it's sent. If you take it with you on the day you may find the HCP will refuse to accept it from you.

    Good luck.
