    Hi,

    You should have sent copies of evidence for your PIP and not originals, they never return any evidence sent, which is the reason you should always send copies. DWP won't send the evidence to ATOS for your ESA unfortunately. Can you get copies of what you sent for PIP?

    If you've already sent the ESA50 then sending the extra evidence to DWP wouldn't be of much use because they may not use it. Ring the health assessment providers tomorrow and ask where to send it.
