My DLA runs out in May this year and I received the new pip form to complete. I had the form filled in on my behalf and checked by our local expert at the action centre Retford. I enclosed all of my scans (MRI. DATSCAN. CT & SPECTSCAN) plus the more recent reports giving the diagnosis from two professors of neurology, a report from social services detailing my difficulties and how they assessed my need and putting in place 42hrs per week assisted care package and finally a report from the Clinical Services Dept awarding me a Personal payment package. The lady the action centre thought that I wouldn't need to send all this information (my wife agreed) but guess what!
THE DWP ARE SENDING SOMEONE OUT TO SEE HOW THE ILLNESS AFFECTS ME!
Now I have no problem with the visit as it's as plain as the nose on my face the daily challenges we go through as a sufferer of PSP and the strain it has on the family, but my point is WHAT A WAIST OF THEIR TIME and I HOPE THAT ALL PEOPLE APPLYING FOR PIP are subject to the same scrutiny.
There you go rant over and I feel better for it hahaha
