    Hi, have you been asked to get a letter from your doctor ? If not it isn't always the baes evidence to get as PIP are interested in how your condition affects you on a daily basis and your GP isn't always the best to offer this. There are lots of other types of evidence you can supply, like a daily diary how you manage day to day, or a statement from someone who knows how you live day to day.

    If you do want a doctors letter contact the surgery (email if you can ), each surgery haver different policies regarding cost and payment so they will be able to advise you

    I hope you are successful at your appeal

    A letter from your GP is arguably useful if a person lacks insight into their own condition but generally they’re neither use nor ornament. Better to focus on whether you have 2 examples per activity of what happened when you recently attempted the points scoring activities.
