Yes as expected a rather indifferent outcome, not that I expected much else really and I ought to be quite satisfied but I'm not because I'm sure they are talking about someone else?
I got standard rate Mobility, which means no entitlement to a car. I have been on motability fot 10 years due to my condition - so what's changed?
Well for one I wasn't complaining about my back or legs neither on the PIP form or the assessment. I have no circulation in my feet and I sent photographs and information about how the condition affects me along with numerous medical notes.. The decision letter came with no mention of my circulation problems, my feet or the fact that walking was a problem because of the discomfort
They said they appreciated the fact I had restrictions in my back and legs - err I never said that I had, that was obviously how the assessor wrote the form. I was never asked about my feet at the assessment only how far I could walk to which I answered on bad days which I have more than good, not very far and certainly not 20 metres without severe pain
Also they said I had written I had problems planning and following a journey - no I didnt! I remember ticking the "No" box of that question, so who are they actually talking about here?
I have rung the DWP and the guy agreed that the assesment made no mention of my circulation which was clearly stated on my PIP form along with photographic evidence of my white/blue feet
I am awauting a call from the decision maker to explain the decision because I am confused as to why they assessed me on something I never included on my form?
