just a bit of background. Husband previously had pip for mainly physical ailment but had mental health issues going on aswell and recieved pip for 2 years but called for review after 1 year.
Now physical ailment pretty much sorted but has had a diagnosis of depression, anxiety and personality disorder.
going to therapy 5 hours per week.
had re-review and had desicion from DWP 2 weeks ago that no longer entitled. I phoned the day after and asked for a mandatory reconsideration. Women was quite helpful and asked where I thought he hadn’t scored and where he should have.
main thing being down scored on needing social support to engage
but the other one .... managing therapy I thought he would have scored a 4 for 5 hours of therapy per week ( originally gave letter from mental health trust stating diognosis and therapy) however I am now wondering how scoring is done within a section as within that section I also need to prompt him or ask if he has taken his medications sometimes.
Am I right in thinking that you cannot score for 2 separate elements within 1 category and that they will down grade you to whatever is needing the most of?
This was was the main point on the reconsideration asked for and I exaplined this to her and she did ask me if I needed to prompt with meds......
anyone else scoring different things within same category.
