when I applied for my pip appeal I requested an all female panel because I was abused by my ex husband and struggled Being around men. This was October 2017 now the courts tell me they would have had a date for me already but they are struggling to get an all female panel would it matter if I told them that this no longer matters yes being around men will be hard for me but the stress of waiting for this tribunal is too much for me

    I would suggest that you ring the tribunal clerk and give your reasons
