    Hi pippa scope taking my Sons pip to appeal so had a call from dwp asking me for more evidence told them i had sent this to tribunal people so he said he will look at what ive sent them when they pass it to him and then give me a call back next week he also gave me advice on what else to send in. Also had to ask for assessment report  which ive just got today in the post i did ask for this on reconsideration but this got ignored. Assessor contradicts what is put to what conclustion she comes too. My Son got 0 on assessment and on reconsideration. Wondering if dwp are trying to avoid tribunal? but wont hold my breath on that one.

    Hi @button1973. Just wondering how you're getting on. Did the DWP ever call you back regarding your tribunal?
