    You can try but don't be surprised if they refuse to accept it from you on the day, as this has happened to lots of people, myself included. Evidence should ideally be sent with a claim form.

    You can take copies of evidence that you sent in and new recent that wasn’t available at the time of application just in case anything has been lost or mislaid, if refused you have lost nothing except taking a few extra papers. Good luck.

    If you sent it in it will be i the appeal papers. Therefore no need to take it in on the day.

    You need to get your evidence into the DWP. Unless it explicitly tells the HCP something about your functional abilities then it’s of little use to a HCP and nor is it practical to expect them to have the time to read, digest and weigh it agaunst their own observations.
