    Hi Sharon yes the DWP do contact any health professional named on your PIP form. It generally means they need some formal evidence such as a fact based report on your condition or a care plan if you have one.

    Assessments are also a norm but more and more people are now getting paper based decisions so keep your fingers crossed.

    Atos are a complete shower of $€£¥ they have to be seen to be doing something

    But as they have been found to be paid lackies (not impartial as they where supposed to be) who are beyond contempt.

    this has forced the DWP to rethink and start to offer more paoer only decisions

    Hopefully your evidence provided by REAL care proffessions will get you a proper result
