Hi there
i am going to a video assessment for pip with my son. It is a mental health illness he has. What happens if I just do it with a couple of witness. His CPN & HCA. I am just worried he will have a bad day &will not come with me to his mental health centre where we are having the video call. Any help please.

    Hi there and welcome to the community 

    It's not usual to take witnesses to an assessment have you informed them that is what you are doing

    If you are asking if you can do the assessment without him being there the answer is no.
    Information I post is for England unless otherwise stated. Rules may be different in other parts of UK.
