Will it matter

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’ve i’ve asked for someone on the panel who has experience of Epilepsy - they’ll probably think I want someone biased....

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