He has been on DLA for 8yrs and now have to attend a PIP re-assessment on the 26th October.
Bad days are 5 days a week – very bad days he is unable to even lift his head of the pillow (2 days a week)
Son only goes out to see his doctor which is 10 minutes away by car or visit his sister. Travelling any more than 10 minutes would cause great discomfort , he users crutches or a wheelchair to help him move about.
His primary pain killer is morphine both is tablet form and oral solution.
My problem is for some reason his appointment has been made 35 miles away at 8.45am! - I don’t understand why so far away as assessments have always been carried out either in our home are at a clinic 3 miles away. I will be ringing them up tomorrow in the hope that another appointment can be made to a ATOS clinic 3 mile away... CAN they insist that we have to go to the one allicated in the letter, if that is the case then my son will be in no fit state to answer any question when he gets there!
