Hi, just got a letter stating my pip has been refused. My original assessment was successful and I was awarded pip until 15th November 2017, but then I had an annual review, I got asked to go for assessment which I did. I never included gp statement as I thought original one still counted.
In the review assessment I was never asked half of the questions I should have been or I don't recall being asked them, I found out today that they never approached my gp for my medical history at all yet it states in letter that they are going on my medical history, which may I add, some of which has got worse, and needed to be recorded in the pip descriptors. So now I have to pay £15 for a letter from my gp that they should have requested. None of my mental health issues have been even recorded let alone taken into account. They said I could walk 200 metres unaided when I had to use my crutch and I wear a knee brace because my knee was agony. Nothing I said has been taken into account at all. I'm asking for a mandatory reconsideration, but it took the letter 5 days to get to me, so I've only got just over 21 days to request it. Does anyone have any advice? I've already got my request down in writing, giving in great detail my reasons for the request. I'm getting a supporting letter from gp and supporting statement from my mum who is my carer stating what she does for me, as well as a copy of my original decision letter. Will I need anything else?
