Hello, i hope someone can helo. I basically got a letter to dee they reviewed my case again because og the changes made by MHV DWP and that they dont beliebe it applies to me. They already have reeeeels of evidence saying why i need accompanyment when out and about. Anyway was told can have a MR on this area and i told them i would send in more medical evidence and a written MR. Im awaiting letters from my GP and a meeting with my CPN next week. In the meantime i contacted my MP as i dont trust DWP and my 3 yearly reviews have a massive impact on me. Ive not long come out the psyk ward as i cant deal with it. A memeber of her team said they contacted DWP to say i dont need to send medical evidence and the only way my award could be extebded was if i was to have qnother assessment when my award was up. I explained to her i requested a MR and that's why i will send them extra info. Also explained many people hqve had their award lenghth extended without reassessment as ive read so many times on forums. My esa has no end dqte as my doctor had put that my mental health and physical limitations are permanent and unlikely to improve. I have requested this to be in my pip letter too. Does anyone have any experience of this? How likely are they to extend my award during the MR for plqnning and undertaking a journey if both my care co ordinator mental health team and gp say my conditions are permanent t and unlikely to improve?
