My g.p has agreed to put something in writing and he asked for written details regarding how my disability affects me.
@anthonyj1 I agree with Poppy. If you ask your doctor for a 'supporting letter' then it will inevitably include what you have just told him/her to write. I imagine that's why DWP don't consider them. My GP knew nothing about PIP when I asked her so would have been of little value anyway...You must do what you think best but my advice is to spend your money on something else...
This comment you made "This is why I dont like reading comments like "assessor will see right through you" This is what could happen and what i advise others when i see people giving the advice to fill out their form "as if it's their worst day" This is the worst advice i've ever seen and makes me cringe when i see it. Why? because if someone does this and attends their face to face assessment they have to confirm what's been written in their PIP2 form. PIP isn't about how you are at least 50% of the time over a 12 month period not about your worst days.
I sent my pip review form back on the 16th of August and today i received my award without going to an assessment. I sent in all the letters i got from my consultant along with my medication lists. I didn't bother to put my doctors name on the form just my specialist nurse's as she is the one that knows more as to how my illness affects me. My advise is don't send too much information, just what is relevant to your illness
hi @poppy123456 i worded it wrong sorry, my review form was due back by the 16th, i actually posted it on the 6th... yes it is a new award payable until August 2023 i am as surprised as you that it didn't take that long. Could you tell me if there will be a report i can ring for ?
... apparently a lot of people are getting pip refused because they drive.
