tribunal refusal

State that my epileptic seizures are controlled during the day and when sleeping the nature and extent of the resulting limitations are insufficient to warrant points. I have complained, stating that I need safety and supervision with me during the night and memory problems need help with medication control.  Will the DWP see this before I take it to upper tribunal.

    My first discussion forgets to mention that I have just come out of hospital after suffering 11 seizures in 12 hours, the doctors see this as stress and a start of an infection.  I am still waiting to hear from the DWP

    Hi Pet and welcome

    By complaining do you mean that you have asked for a mandatory reconsideration ?

    You will need the result of MR before you can apeal to the tribunal

    There is plenty of info on here about the apeals process please have a look around and come back with any questions

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