Light at the end of the tunnel

Sorry folks, not been around for a while. Early part of this year my oxygen needs increased and my cylinders were replaced by oxygen concentraters which suit me better. April 1st ( ha ha ) had a PIP interview over the phone due to the corona virus and a change in my circumstance. All seemed to go well and the HCP was very pleasant, even helpful. I was going to ask for a copy of the report but my wife ended up in hospital for 10 days with C -Diff ( which is a horrible thing ) Once she came home I was going to ring for a copy of the report but she then tripped over, breaking her humerous 9 Strange name for something that isn't at all funny ) Next I recieved a request for additional info from the DWP regarding my claim. Then yesterday I got a call from a DWP decision maker with some more questions. The very nice lady said that she had looked at my claim and disagreed with the HCP. After consulting with her manager they decided to award enhanced/enhanced for 10 years.
So no matter how you think your assessment goes, the DWP can and do use common sense when making a decision.

Hopefully I will be able to catch up with many of you soon but until then stay safe


Be all you can be, make  every day count. Namaste
