I sent a letter to  the PIP Assessment in Wolverhampton to advise them about my consultants medical letter about my Secondary Fibromyalgia.On Friday the 27th April 18 I received an new PIP application.Recently press reports indicate that 1.6 million  PIP application submitted will have to be looked at due to inconsistent point awards.It states that if you have further information to advise them of any changes which I did.On srndinf the letter as I stated earlier the returned me a new application to complete,why?.Another  assessment that I could well do without.

    Dwp done it to me and i went for assessment and i ended up worse off. My conditions are far worse but they decided i was the same but got 2 points less.
    I have no faith in this system at all.

    Is your disgnosis in dispute? That would be unusual as you don’t need a diagnosis to get PIP. The question then is whether your consultants report directs itself to the specific activities you think you should score points on? That would be unusual as your consultant most likely won’t have seen you perform those activities. So, what is it in the report that you think ought to be persuasive? Have you sent it in or just told them it exists?

    By sending you a form they’re doing no more than saying “direct yourself to the activities. Tell us what you can’t do; why and give us examples.” Medical reports rarely do that.

    The legislation you refer to is for those with MH problems and adults to mobility. Do you have these issues?

    You informed them because of a change to your condition and you now can't do what you could before? 


    Do not follow me, I don't know where I am going.

    If that is the situation then at the least they should be awarded the same award and at best an increase on the previous award - well that is what my logic tells me.
