PIP tribunal outcome confusing

LittleGizmo86LittleGizmo86 Member Posts: 79 Courageous

So i had a tribunal for PIP on the papers and i am confused by the outcome. They requested my medical notes and my counselling notes as on of the things i applied for was mental health. My counselling notes show i have suicidal thoughts and having negative voices along with continually increasing doses of citalopram. My GP even wrote a letter stating i have severe mental health issues and struggle to go out. On the decision letter there is absolutely no mention of mental health what so ever. I dont know whos notes they read but they werent mine. Anyway the didnt award me PIP and now i am really confused what i am to do now? I have asked for a statement of reasons.

Please help

    I'm sorry to hear that. Once you receive the Statement of reasons, you need to find someone to look to see if an error in law was made. If that's not found then you won't be able to take it any further.

    If you decide to re-apply in the future then you really should get some face to face advice. Re-apply with the same evidence you previously used will likely see another refusal.

    Hi Pippa thank you for the reply. They have totally disregarded my mental health. It isnt listed at all as one of my conditions i applied with. 90% of my application and evidence/reports were for my mental health but it isn't mentioned. Not once. Can they do this?
