    Hello @affii1993   Sorry to hear this.  Please if I can reassure you.

    Please if I can ask you could inform DWP of any delay in getting any evidence.

    You could also do a number of things to get evidence.

    One of my recommendations is to apply Surgeries Website.

    I have done this for medication delivery, apply for on line for appointments.

    More important can if I wish to down load medical evidence from my own records.

    You need to access this by contacting Surgery.

    When opens. 

    Other ones are health workers support workers reports. Any care plans.

    Please can I inform you PIP as is any benefit is constantly under review .

    This is one of the issues with anything regarding benefits.

    I am afraid this does happen as I know my own personal circumstances.

    Claiming since early Eighties and then again Nineties.

    Was on a treadmill reviews one assessor says fit to work and sign on then eighteen months unfit to work.

    Around we go again.  For a long period of time. Used a charity to help and guide mental health support worker intervened.

    My advice to you is always get support, advice, guidance from any one who is supporting you.

    If you have a mental health conditions can supply relevant charities.

    If other conditions, illness always charities, organisation societies.

    Offer support advice, guidance and may be able to attend and speak for you if they need to.

    Please take care, keep safe.

    Are you waiting for the MR decision? If that’s where you’re at then the closure of your surgery or advice centre isn’t relevant yet. 

    However, it’s worth knowing that appeal delays have fallen dramatically and you won’t be waiting anything like a year. They were down to 30 to 35 weeks and the pandemic has seen a temporary move to paper and telephone hearings which threatens to further reduce that delay.
