My partner recently had their pip assessment and a not long ago got their letter through saying they were awarding them 0 points. This floored us. To start with, my partner has multiple physical conditions that prevent them from doing tasks without help like cooking, dressing themselves fully, walking more than a few paces causes difficulty ect ect (I could go on but won't bore you)
Today we had the report through and in it the assessor has told multiple lies. One was about grip, she never asked my partner to grip her fingers but in the report it says she had and that they had done so without issue. She mentions my partner can walk to the garden gate (we don't have one) nor could they if we did. The whole report is scattered with lies.
I'm just wondering if anyone else has had this problem? My partner has put through the MR but we know because of the lies on the report that it probably won't change anything so are fully aware that it will probably end up going to appeal. I am worried that they will now take the mobility car that my partner relies on as they would be housebound with it.
