Pip consultation.

Hi everyone,

I hope you have all enjoyed a pain free sunny day today ?

I wanted to celebrate that at last I have my pip consultation meeting next Friday 5th. June. I am a bit nervous as I don't know what to expect.

Have any of you got any advise on Pip consultation meetings?

Thanks x

Thank you so much for replying to me.

I hope you get the news you are waiting for.



Me too nothing as yet 😧xxx


Hiya, its easy to say dont be nervous, but it is nervewracking, i was very nervous for mine, i also had a lovely lady, i would say be yourself, speak the truth, and just express fully how yr illness affects you in every aspect of your life, how it makes you feel, what you can and cant do, it will be over before you know it, and if you have brain fog like me then make a note for yourself to make sure you dont forget anything, (wish we could forget it i hear you say). Good luck, and try not to stress..lisa x

Hi I have. Been lucky I have had four assessments and each time I have had a lovely lady.Just be yourself, say how it affects you from day to day.I said I have good and bad days some days getting up and dressed is enough. Try not to worry they are not out to trick you, good luck 😊


Hope it goes well. Good luck! Mx


Hiya heathersmum. From my experience do be aware that your assessor watches you from the moment she/he calls you through to the room where the assessment is done. Mine considered that because I "can walk" (ha!) the 15 metres to the room that I can walk, as the descriptor says, for 200 metres. This isn't the case but I didn't have any written medical evidence at that time to back up my responses to her so she marked me down & I failed the mobility component. I posted how my assessment went if you'd like to read it healthunlocked.com/nras/pos...

I got worked up the day before my assessment which I needn't have done really as apart from mobility she understood my limitations & I was awarded enhanced rate daily care. I do understand though, it's like an exam & I was always nervous the days leading up to those too.

Good luck for next Friday, tell it how it is & let us know how it went. All experience is helpful for the ones considering applying for PIP or waiting for their assessment.


To everyone who have replied to my pip consultation question.

Thank you for replying .

I will let you know how it goes. Fingers crossed gently.
