    HI,

    You can but you may not get very far. DWP have nothing to do with the reports, they are written by the health assessment providers. Any comnplaints about the report should be sent to the health assessment providers.

    Regarding the medication, she stated that she can do this with no problems, why did she state this if she can't. Why does her partner give her the medication? Is she unable to that herself, does she forget to take it so needs reminding to do so?

    Did she score any points for preparing a meal and dressing/undressing.

    hi   thank you for reply yes 2 on both  aid  would be appropriate to reduce fatigue and assit with repeatability  she doesnt want to complain    and just needs reminding  for med   i think what it saying she doing  things on better day  so this is causing the severe fatigue on majority of days  but she gets post exertion from any physical activity   tha

    If she scored 2 points for each of the activities for washing/bathing and preparing a meal then she must have scored 1 point for medication because she scored 7 points in total for daily living. 1 point for medication is correct here.
