Unfair result

Springchicken65 Member Posts: 2 Listener
Having been refused appeal for PIP, I am very aware that now I have nowhere else to go.  The tribunal, in my opinion, weighed their decision on things that were nothing to do with my stated conditions. Why was I driving after having a stroke.  I didn’t have a stroke.  No mention of any of the conditions that I suffer from apart from one.  Why for instance did the doc ask me what a typical day was over a year ago. I couldn’t remember.

I wasn’t asked if I had anything to add like how was my health now over a year later.

Whoever sets the criteria in a point scoring exercise fails to grasp as indeed the panel failed to grasp that human health is a many factored labyrinth of complexities.  Time goes on as indeed ones health fails over time outside of government goalposts...
