I have read quite a few posts on here that mention PIP, I have helped a friend with his forms and he is currently in hospital for 6 weeks, he mentioned the hospital dates on the completed forms. I collected his post last week for him and was surprised that Capita had sent an appointment through for a date while he was receiving treatment. I was also surprised that they expected him to travel over 30 miles to get to an assessment centre in a completely different area/town, and to be there at 08.10 am, they included journey options and one was to start at 06.41 am. I don't know if they routinely do this and include instructions? another one was to set off at 05.51 and walk 1.2 miles. It seemed to me that they want to put him off before he even gets there. Anyone else been sent such early appointment and in different area?
