I had a PIP face to face assessment 5 weeks ago and yesterday had the DWP Call me to ask when did my symptoms start..
I thought this was very strange as I had written all information in the form and answered all questions in my assessment.
The women I had on the phone was pretty rude and abrupt too as I asked her which symptoms, as I unfortunately had a lot.
An hour later she called again to ask me if I had any over night hospital stays, and when.
Then continued to say she needed the exact date. I explained I could not remember and she asked me to go find a hospital letter with date, I explained I am currently A wheel chair user and in my bedroom and couldn’t just go down stairs and get her these details I would call her back, could I get her name. Which she just gave me the telephone number to call back.
The phone call baffles me, and already waiting an answer for Pip is already anxious enough, but with this phone call it’s caused me more anxiety. I wonder if this was normal procedure and if any one else has experienced this?
Thank you ☺️
