Bit of advice/help needed here? I had a Atos 'consultation' for PIPS back in July 13' when I was eventually awarded mobility and living components both on the enhanced rate.
Within eleven months I received yet another PIPS application form to complete, which of course I questioned. I was told that DWP can 'review' your case at any time they choose and I would have to complete the form or loose my benefits!!!
Three days to complete the form due to difficulty in holding a pen and actually being able to concentrate on what I had to complete and the additional stress it was causing and it was submitted (August 14').
Now being into November 14', I have received a letter from Atos to inform me that I have to have ANOTHER 'consultation' but this time in my home, to access how my various and overlapping medical conditions affect my daily living????????????
I cannot understand this as I have overwhelming medical evidence (fibro, IBS/ bladder/fatique/reynards etc etc from doctors/consultants/pain clinic etc, together with many photos (reynards) that has all been submitted to the DWP and I'm already on the enhanced rate?
Has anybody else been subjected to all this intimidation and bully tactics as its really doing my head in with all the stress and worry, plus what a total waste of time and money from the DWP, when all my medical problems are well documented and known by them? My wife is concerned at the pressure this is all putting on me, as I know its NOT doing me any good at all and my wife is certainly going to be present at the consultation, when I'm sure she will be having 'words' with the Atos person!
What actually is involved in a 'home consultation', has anybody had one of these?
Sorry to go on, but I am really worried and concerned.
