Where can a medical report come from?
I understand that it's important to give the DWP medical reports, when applying for PIP, as they use them to determine what points you may get. My question is, are there any restrictions on where these medical reports come from? To give an example:
Say I go to my NHS GP, and ask to be referred to see a private specialist/consultant. So, I pay to see this person, and they write up their report, and send it back to my GP. Can I use this report for the DWP/PIP, even though it wasn't written by anyone on the NHS?
Thanks for any comments.
