I wrote a message a couple of weeks ago about a system that seems so disjointed it's almost a farce. I applied for a pip a month or so ago transfering from DLA. I sent all my test results , letters from 2 Professors , social services report and a clinical health report. Plus more and more stuff that I thought it was overkill. So when I received a letter saying they were sending a health care professional to see me I though no problems, let them come.
The visit was this morning (a lovely nurse) but the questions she asked had all been covered in my application. The interview lasted 40 minutes tops. When I asked what the point of her visit was she just shrugged her shoulders as if to agree with me.
Why isn't there someone who understands the condition on any of these panels so when we apply for benefits fully backed with results etc it's just accepted as a given. I see to many people lolling about the streets with walking AIDS etc only to see them playing golf or bowls.
It's could take another 8 weeks before I get the decision!, blumming crazy and a waste of time.
