    Most people have to attend a face to face assessment when claiming PIP, whether it's at home or at an assessment centre. It's rare to have a paper based assessment.

    As @Chobbly has advised, a letter from his GP is needed if requesting a home assessment and it will need to state the reasons why he can't attend the assessment centre. However, if he attends other appointments then it could go against him.
