PIP Assessment up-date


I had my PIP assessment this morning at my home, The Atos health person was kind and understanding over my health condition.......and my nerves...... However the assessment took just over 2 hours and felt tired afterwards.........

I thought that the assessment would involve a check of equipment/aids fitted in my home, But none off this, She had accepted my answers to the support that I have.

My home visit for me was a good experiance, I felt She listen to my health issues and difficulties that I have daily.

Will just have to wait for another 6 -8 weeks to find out if my application is accepted or not :(

Lets wait and see.

Im glad it went well for you. I am still waiting for my results and the longer I wait the more on edge I am getting, I listen for the letter box every morning and then am terrified when I do hear it. Wont be long now. I hope. :O

Thank you for your kind support, I really hope you won't have too long to wait for a positive outcome for your assessment, I totally understand that brown envelope syndrome. Very best wishes for your results.

Just love your profile picture of your collie dog... :)

It at last sounds really promising! I hope the outcome is good for you.

Best wishes


Well done for getting through this. It is understandable to be tired as it would be a strain for anyone. Hoping that you get a good result and soonx

A big thank you for everyone that has sent kind wishes and thoughts to me today, I'am more relaxed after this assessment and rewarded myself with a rest on bed this afternoon..... :)

The next event is waiting for the brown envelope at my door........

I have been very warmed by the kindness and encouragement of everyone, Thank you each and everyone for your support.

Hugs to you all, Steve XX

wishing you well with the outcome xx

So glad you had your assessment at home, they can be done for the people who need them, it's just that the people who need them don't always know that they are there, glad you got yours, you were so tired with the strain of the whole process, and please relax and try and be calm while you wait for the brown envelope to flop onto the mat, stres does not do any of us any good, and when the brown thing does arrive, be calm, get a cup of tea, and something nice and take your time, read it slowly and breathe slowly, for now ttfn
