PIP i need some advice please
Hi, this is my first post and would like some advice please. I have received my report and only have 6 points for daily living. Whilst some of the report is reasonable the HP admitted they had no knowledge of my health condition, yet based their opinion on it. There are some factual errors and misconceptions about what I said. Whilst I don't want to focus on the inaccuracies, I feel that it is important that what they recorded as my answers are not correct. I am intending to write a supporting statement and was thinking of setting it out with the HP's quotes for each descriptor I disagree with, followed by what I actually said about the impact of my illness. I don't want to come across as combative, what do people think? I was also thinking of linking the relevant Assessment Guidance Criteria to each descriptor, but again I am thinking it could be inflammatory. Also, I am sure that I read on here somewhere, that it is a good idea to either verbalize this or send the letter into the CM before the 'official' decision is made. I would love to get people's opinion. Thanks
