    Best evidence will be anecdotal and addressed to whether you can perform activities repeatedly and safely in a work setting. Your diagnosis likely won’t be in dispute so it’s not clear what GP evidence brings to the table.

    As Mike says a letter from a GP is usually of little help.
    my advice is given freely and is correct to the best of my knowledge.

    Basically it’s your responsibility to address how you meet the descriptors.

    You need to demonstrate how your day to day activities are impacted by your health conditions/disability. 

    A GP won’t know this. 

    Yes they can confirm a diagnosis or a test result.
