Hi, I ended up appealing the decision the dwp made not to award PIP. 
I just heard that they have awarded in my favour and should be given PIP, however I have heard the dwp can further challenge the panels decision.is it likely they will appeal this and I will not awarded?

    Good afternoon @jjlucy, it can certainly happen where the dwp go against the decision,but more likely than not they go with the appeals decision.

    @Popdiva43 thanks for your reply.
    I am hoping not just due to the stress of it all. I didn't attend the tribunal as I was too stressed with it all and was not hopeful at all. I simply went ahead as there were some statements made that were not true.
    I'm hoping me not attending won't affect it. But they had all paperwork and dr was present

    DWP can't just "go against a Tribunal decision." They have the same chance we do to appeal that decision but to do this they must first request the Statement of reasons and record of proceedings within 1 month of the date of the decision.
    Once they receive those they need to find the error in law. They sometimes request these but rarely appeal it.
    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.

    @hannah9229 it was first tier tribunal. I never attended just agreed to an appeal and to have my case discussed. 
    I only went through with it because there were errors and these were not rectified on my MR. 
    I was penalised due to having a manual car and all the way through my report it argued every point with the fact that I worked. This didn't sit right with me as you can work and claim but I felt it was held against me. 
    The fact that I had a manual car was also a running theme although I rely heavily on it and can not just go out and purchase an automatic car on a whim.
    There were also other statements that  were not accurate
