Changing from pip to dla
Hi, my son has been asked to change over from Pip to Dla. He had a stroke 8 year's ago and suffers with crohns also. He can't cope with any pressure and says he will take his own life if he is made to go to an assessment for pip. His doctor wrote to the ida after being invited for a home assessment. They wrote back saying they need more medical evidence, doctor wrote back again stating about pressure cognitive problem's and his daily symptoms of crohns etc. We also jncluded a stroke physio report who sees him regularly at home and an upcoming referral letter to see a neuro psychologist. They have ignored all this and say that he still needs a f2f assessment at home. Help please I rang ida to say he might take his own life. Also sent copies of gp letter's to dwp. Am beside ourselves as they are making him so stressed regarding this and am literally really worried that he will commit suicide over this. His go is aware of this but they won't take any notice. Have been advised to become his appointee, how long does that take and will they wait for this before assessment or will he have to make a new claim. Need some advise please
