My husbands sister in law (previous marriage) has adults Stills Disease. She went to Tribunal on the 23/1/19 in Enfield. She was awarded 8 points for DLA and 10 points for mobility.
They've said she's only entitled to the Standard rate from 11/7/18 to 8/5/2021. This means she won't qualify to keep her mobility car.
There were many innacuracies highlighted at the tribunal in regards to medical reports and also at her face to face assesment she was never asked to walk/observed doing activities, arrived in a wheelchair which was pushed by her sister (her carer).
Without her car she is housebound and also canot attend hospital appointments as no one else but her in the family can drive.
Can we appeal and ask this is re-looked at? Many Thanks.
