hi,i have an occu thearpist..she wrote a letter for me but they took no notice of it or my docs letter so i was turned down..after that i rang them and told them that they have not taken into account my letters from my gp or they changed it to middle rate care lower mobilty..i don't know if your ot would go with you if not ask for a letter from her with all the infor ..and get as much infor as you can..i hope this helps you a bit good luck to you.
