HI, can anyone help me, please. MY review for pip is due in June, I believe the new form they send now is 12 pages long and asks to tick if your condition is easier, the same or worse. I have also been advised not to just tick the boxes but also to send in medical evidence. Question 1... I believe the evidence should be no more than 2yrs old? is this correct. The evidence I have is much older than 2 yrs and was submitted when I went from dla to pip 3 yrs ago. Some of the evidence I sent back then was not up to date evidence but confirmed all the conditions that I suffer with. I suffer from mental and physical conditions and also severe agoraphobia so very rarely go to any appoints. A new problem I have now is that my gp of many yrs has recently retired, she knew me extremely well, she used to do home visits as i couldnt go to the surgery and she dealt with all my conditions. MY new gp doesn't know me at all and i really cant talk to her like i could my old gp, i only ever have a home visit now when i get a chest infection, i won't go into my conditions but suffer from eating disorder,severe copd asthma fibromyalgia, two types of arthritis osteoporosis severe anxiety, depression and have recently been diagnosed with ischemic heart disease which i haven't informed the dwp yet. I thought with my review coming up i would add this at the same time. I am worrying about sending evidence in with my review form as i only have evidence that i have already given apart from the new diagnoses of ischemic heart disease allot of the evidence submitted was from when first diagnosed, some conditions were diagnosed 10 yrs ago, do I still send in that same evidence? I do have new evidence of my heart disease and have a new letter from my gp saying what my conditions are but, not how they affect me. she doesn't know me personally and have only seen her a handful of times since my gp retired but, would my old gp have put this info into the pc at the surgery? basically, im worrying that my evidance is to old now. I don't see other consultants anymore, they all discharged me due to failing to attend appointments due to the severe agoraphobia. reason that my old gp dealt with everything.
I can get my medical records but, its not going to tell them anythng differant than the evidence i have already given them when being transferred from dla to pip.I had a home assesment by atos and was awarded the enhanced rate of care and mobility. any views on my evidence will be very much appreciated. Do i send what i have already sent or just the new evidence with my new diagnosis? i really want to avoid having to get my daughter who is my carer filling in all that dreaded long form again. she doesn't suffer with anxiety or depression but even she struggled filling it in finding it difficult to explain into words how my conditions affected me on a daily bases, she wrote a lot of detail down and by the end of it all she was stressed out to. If it came to me having to fill in another form like the first one, could she copy down what she wrote in my first report rather than having to reword it completely different?
thank you in advance
