hi all,made a claim for pip in october 2016 as i had pneumonia was in hospital then told I have copd so was advised to claim so sent all medical stuff in they say need to go for f2f I’ve got bad anxiety and depression my husband goes with me to assessment the hcp was a paramedic he says my condition not so bad he seen a lot of people like it. The assessment goes on for a hour an really uncomfortable my husband try’s to speak for me assessor havin none of it, he said he needs to check my pulse he say my heat rate not good and need to see a doctor he shuffles us out of room. I then pass out at the door the receptionist try’s to help my husband pick me up and hcp goes straight back to his room not bothered. My husband brings me home as am so stressed with assessment. Then 2 weeks later dwp sends me a letter to say I’ve not attended the Atos assessment so there not looking at my claim,so husband rings them to explains what had happened at Atos assessment with hcp. My son probation office said she would send a letter from ther office recorded for them to look at my claim so they write to me weeks later dwp today have not attended assessment apparently them Atos sent me 2 more appointments which i never received.last text ive got of We've received your request to look at our recent Personal Independence Payment decision again.
