Hi I applied for PIP back in May and have been waiting for the medical ever since! Last week I was pleased to get an appointment for the 14th -tomorrow, well actually I got two appointments for tomorrow! I phoned them back to ask for the later one as I do still manage to work. I said I couldn't do the 10 am slot as I struggle to get to work most days and when I have a sick day I seriously really need it. Juggling work and RA is impossible and I will lose my job due to absences. Initially they offered me a new appointment for the 31 of Oct, an hour later they phoned me back to say that I didn't need a medical and the information on the form, medical records etc was enough!!!!
I think I must be getting turned down I was really looking forward to being assessed as I'm going through a rough patch at the moment -a proper flare visibly shattered and swollen and depressed and now even more stressed.
Has anyone else received PIP without an assessment?
Or will I need to get ready for an apeal!
