    Hi,

    Future appointment letters aren't classed as evidence, this is because it doesn't give them any information about your condition other than you're on the waiting list or expecting an appointment in the near future.
    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.
