Tribunal Appleal

libertyhunter Member Posts: 2 Listener
Hi after one year I have finally gotten a date to attend a tribunal for my PIP appeal on the 06/03/2020.  It is for severe mental health problems and I will have support workers attending the hearing with me.  I have a psychiatric nurse who regularly sees me for my problems who initially wrote the first letter of appeal that was dismissed.  She can not attend the hearing with me on that specific date and my main question is if it is worth postponing my tribunal date to a date where she could attend?  Will it make much of a difference to the final decision if she attended or should I just go without her? I was told on the phone that anyone who comes with me is mainly there for moral support and all the questions will be directed towards me.  What should I do? If I postpone on average how long would I have to wait and is it worth just attending without my psychiatric nurse?
