Pip Tribunal postposed due to Doctor not available

I finally received my Tribunal date and was nervous but happy i had finally got to this stage, it was due to take place tomorrow 30th October. Last thursday i received a telephone call to say very sorry but due to having no doctor to sit on the panel Judge had adjourned the hearing. 
I sent in 3 years of medical records a few weeks ago, does anyone think this may have something to do with the cancellation.

    No, I doubt that very much. As long as additional information was provided within the 14 day timescale, then it will be admitted as supporting evidence. The doctor not being available. I have heard of this before. The reason that time, was something to do with the partner at his own surgery being taken ill had he had to handle the work load. (Cannot swear to the reason) However, my friend, to whom this happened received another date within 28 days, and all went well. Good luck, and try not to worry too much.
