Have hope DWP over rules Atos assessor

vwpolovwpolo Member Posts: 2 Listener
Had home visit. DLA to PIP. Assessor awarded 14 points D/L, 10 points mobility. DWP awarded 12 points, overuling Atos assessor on mobility which gave me enhanced on D/L and Mobility. Ongoing award with soft touch review in 10 year's. My advice, send in as much medical evidence as possible, including photographic evidence of injuries. 
Good luck

    Great to hear positive news.
    No point in sending in photographic evidence though as this is scanned into the system and any detail is totally lost in the process so all that is seen is a black blurb ie its useless as evidence.

    @vwpolo, hello and welcome, it's nice to hear your good news mostly bad news we hear and read about. Yes sending the most up to date medical supporting evidence is the best and only way to get a honest result. Well done you and thanks for letting us all know.

    Hi and welcome. 

    Same here, DWP over ruled assessor in my son's case and I think they have in mine as well.?

    What do people think of this in the decision:
    I have looked at the information you provided and the health professional report and changed the descriptors previously chosen based on the medical evidence received. 

    Does this mean she has changed my descriptors or the assessors? 
    Anyone know please?

    It means she (the case manager) has.
    They may have sent your medical evidence to another health professional first for advice though.

    It means the DM has changed the HCP's recommended descriptors.
