PIP assessment and medical history
Need to know where to go from here. My husband has suffered for more than ten years with Copd, only 25/30 percent lung function;( caused through his work as a paint sprayer, non smoker ever) and has been able to receive dla for ten years, he has obviously not improved over the last ten years but has now failed in his pip assessment as no medical history was asked for, he had also been discharged from hospital in the previous week with heart failure. He has phoned the reassessment team who have said he needs to get the medical history for them. He has phoned his gp and they have told him they only release history to pip if they email and ask for it. Catch 22 as pip won’t ask for it and drs won’t release it unless pip ask for it!! What can we do now please?
