    HI and welcome,

    I'm one of the community champions here on scope. Quite a few of our members have attended a Tribunal for this reason but someone else's case will be totally different to yours because you never get 2 people the same.

    Whether you're entitled to limited capability for work will totally depend on how your conditions affect your ability to do any type of work and this is what they will look at. You will be asked questions based on how your conditions affect you in a typical day. You will need to answer the questions in your own words, unless you have an appointee and then they will be able to answer them on your behalf.

    Sometimes it's not possible for them to make a decision on the day, if this happens they will write to you within a couple of days but it doesn't mean anything other than a decision couldn't be made on that day.

    Are you taking someone with you? This will help you with any anxiety you maybe feeling on the day.

    Good luck.
