Would it be wise to challenge the HCP report with the appeal submission paper or mention at the appe
I am in the process of appealing against the reconsideration notice. At the assessment which lasted no more than 20-25 minutes, the HCP awarded me Zero points for daily living and zero points for mobility. I have a serious walking problem and can only walk a short distance with the help of an Aid. When going out I always use a wheelchair. I also wear a hearing aid on the right ear. I suffer from depression and under the practice nurse at the G.P surgery. I take two types of medication for mental health and depression. When I went for the assessment, I went in a wheelchair. No activities were done or asked to do. The HCP report was totally contrary to what was asked and her summary report. Maybe someone can help with this. Would it be wise to challenge the HCP report with the appeal submission paper or mention at the appeal hearing? To the contrary should I ignore it if no positive outcome would be achieved by doing this?
