assessment looming

I have been given my date for my PIP assessment for next Tuesday, I did ask if I could have someone come to the house as it's difficult to get around but they said no even though they did it on my original application. they now say they don't do that and I will have to come. if it's not bad enough that I have to worry day in day out about my condition now I have to deal with this. I know there are people out there trying to con the system but that's no excuse to put all us through hell and all the stress that comes with it.

to be fair when they come out to me first I got a specialist not someone who got trained up last week, he could see the pain I was in and didn't need to go through all the assessment as he knew the answers to most of the questions.

here's hoping I get a specialist and not someone who got trained last week.

sorry for the rant

It sounds like it's a pot luck appointment. Is that part of the test, getting there! People just don't get it. I had no idea about PIP. I just called last week for an application form and am worried about the assessment. How "bad" do you have to be. I've now lived a very sheltered life, working part time and that's basically it. If it involves anything more than getting in a car and getting out the other end and not have to walk more than 10 minutes then that's my limit. I feel for you having to make the journey and prey you get someone who is competent.
