    I am going through the PIP process at the moment, I've been on DLA for 7 years and was awarded indefinite award, the PIP assessment was a joke done by a nurse, he didn't have a clue what he was doing, the report was disgraceful, they sent me back and told me I'm now on standed award for both, I appealed the decision with help from welfare rights, and a letter from my doctor, and sent the Reconsideration Notice in early last month and still waiting for a decision, the whole process has made me so sick with worry, my medication has increased as I'm have panic attacks now and unable to breathe, it's disgraceful that the DWP are put people through this as I am unable to go anywhere as I'm unable to walk for, I was only 5 points away from the enhanced award, the report was put together just so they could justify not giving me the enhanced reward.

      Lucky boy!! I never got past the first stage to confirm who I am and if I qualified Took my HRM & MRC - DLA off me and said that I am now too old to move over to PIP.

      ?Got the distinct impression that when you are 65+ you become surplus to requirements.

    There is a proper system in place - that is if you live in Northern Ireland!!! Seems also that Scotland are even trying to outdo what NI offers.

    ?But we English just plod along sending money to NI & Scotland for them to make sure that they look after their people properly.
