I came across this point posed on another forum.
I have to laugh that they think we would have copies of xrays, scans, hospital reports etc. I'm 52 years old and been disabled all my life I've never received any of these, the only people who are likely to have anything like these are those having private treatment or some sort legal claim. My son in his 17 years of severe disability inc trachy, peg fed etc and he has never been sent a copy of any reports.
And if dwp dont bother to contact anyone most people will have very little 'evidence'
It is so true, despite what the DWP say as 'evidence that you have to hand' that you could/should have the above reports. For a start how do you read and print out digital copies of the actual scans?
The answer that came back from another poster stated that:
It's expected nowadays that we source our own evidence, xrays and scans have to be paid for.
Has anybody ever managed to get copies of their scans or X-rays on maybe a CD and what did they do with them when applying for ESA or PIP?
