Mental Health review of PIP - have I been included?
HI all, I was searching on line for info advice about a PIP issue. I wonder if anyone can point me in the right direction? I had my review this year - I'm unclear whether I was included in the gov review of people who's mental health were not taken into account before the high court ruling in Jan this year re mobility and public transport - during the assessment I started recording on my phone. I had my assessment at home due to being unable to travel on public transport because of chronic anxiety. I also have RA . And since my last award my health has worsened both physically and mentally and I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia and PTSD in the last two years.. The recording shows how much was left out, including medical letter evidence of new and worsening symptoms. The impact on my life has been played down, so little has been taken into account that my payment has been reduced. I have been asking for help with mobility for few years now and despite my circumstances changing for the worse, since the DWP have ignored this. My MP who I wrote to, does not seem interested in whether the DWP are treating claimants so unfairly!
