My thoughts on PIP

Reading these comments, i think it shocking that these so called health professionals are telling lies. I got standard PIP, but the MR was totally full of stuff that you couldnt make up. Lies, lies, trying to make out consultants are liars even though i had consultant letters. They have no understanding of mental health issues or disabilty, unfair, biased people who are told to fail people

    To put it bluntly, an assessor has no real need to understand disabilities. They are only interested in that having those disabilities (whatever they are)  how do they impact on your life,  what evidence you have that supports that impact and how do those various impacts fit neatly with the PIP descriptors - that's it.
