Hi everyone, I'm currently filling in a pip review form for my son, when he first claimed pip after dla ended his doctor was different to the one he sees now, the practice has become a group practice and although his original doctor is still there my son now sees a different doctor as we feel he's a better doctor, question is should I put a note in or on the pip review form so they know which Dr he actually sees, or with it being a group practice if they contact the doctors will it get to the right dr

    Hi,

    You should put the GP he sees down on the form. However they very rarely contact anyone for evidence so please make sure you send evidence to support his claim when you send the form back. Good luck.

      As it's one of the new shorter review forms there's not actually a place for Dr name so I was going to write a short note and attach it to the form, do you think that will be ok

      Yes, that's fine. I would also put as much info down on the form as possible. Attach notes on seperate paper if you have too. The more info they have the better. Don't be fooled by those review forms because the chances of another assessment are very high as most have them even for a review. The whole process is exactly the same as the first time.

      On the first page it asks to give consent to contact doctors etc, as I'm his appointee and all his letters from DWP come adressed to me do I sign the consent for them to get information or does my son have do this? Also I would like to thank you for all the help you have given to me and others on here, just thought I should let you know how much it's appreciated

      You have to sign it, that's why you're his appointee. If your son signed it they wouldn't accept it. I know it says to give consent to contact doctors etc but please do bear in mind, it's extremely rare for them to do this. Please make sure you send evidence to support his claim.

      That's very kind of you, thank you. You are most welcome!! If you need any further advice along the way, just shout. I'm sure i'll be here somewhere smile
