Hi guys so as you already know i have my PIP Assessment at home home on Friday. So my carer thought it would be good to have all paperwork to hand. So they suggested that i should request a copy of my ESA Medical report it arrived this morning.
This is what it said.
ADVICE My opinion is as follows
I advise that the client meets support group as they have severe Functional Disabilty.
PROGNOSIS I advise that work is unlikely in the longer term.
JUSTIFICATION OF ADVICE
Miss Smith reprts long standing back pain. Multiple medications and treatment modalities have failed to improve her situation.
Function is clearly significantly limited by pain and fatigue and miss smith rarely leaves her home. She is supported in activities of daily living by friends. She has had to move home due to no longer being able to manage the stairs.
Observed behaviouur today was in keeping with this history.
The evidence supports a severe limitation in her ability to reliably and repeatedly mobilise any distance. The use of a manual wheelchair is precuded both by her very limited and referred upper limb pain.
Given the longevity of this situation and the lack of response to tratment future improvement seems improbable. This available evidence suggests improvemnt is unlikely in the longer term.
So i am aware that esa and pip are 2 different benefits but surely this backs up everything and is extra evidence. I wonder if they are willing to call one of their own a liar and dismiss what she has written !
So we shall see !!!
