I appealed under error of law and won - now complaining about ATOS and the DWP
Hi, i was awarded enhanced PIP and standard Mobility in 2013 in which the Atos report had advised the Dwp that my condition was not curable. In 2016 the Dwp told me I had to attend a review assessesment in which an Atos nurse lied, made false statements and contricted my previous assessment my PIP was refused. I appealed to a tribunal which was adjourned to request information from my My GP. their statement of reasons said my previous assement was not relavent to my condition now despite my condition not being curable. In their statement of reasons they did not mention the medical files they apparently requested. ( my GP said she was not aware of this request) my appeal was refused. I appealed under error of law and in 2018 I have only just won my appeal (almost 3 years) I was awarded enhance PiP and standard mobility for an ongoing period. I have ongoing complaints against Atos and the Dwp for maladministration. My local MP has been great helping me and is currently raising the issue in the House of Commons with regards to a broken system and time scales on vulnerable people.
