Welfare Rights / Re: The dreaded DLA to PIP transfer
« Last post by Sunny Clouds on Today at 12:02:51 AM »
Do they pay much attention to the form?  I mean, is it a good thing or a bad thing or a random thing that they ask a GP to fill it in?

One thing that's been worrying me this evening is that he seemed a little surprised when I told him how many falls I'm having.  Not surprised as in its being an odd thing, more surprised, I suppose, that I hadn't been telling him how much of a problem it is.

Oh well, he did seem very confident.

I'm as certain as I can be that I won't get the mobility element but I'm still hoping I might get enhanced care.

It's times like this I wish my ataxia support group met every week not every couple of months.

Sunny all the tell the GP is that they are looking again at your claim and ask him to complete and return the GL7 form, at least that's what the form was called in the past. It's rare they tell the Gl anything.
Take care

I have a wonderful GP.  I hope he knows how good he is.

A helpful GP (or any other professional) who supports benefit applications is worth their weight in gold...

Wishing you the speediest of recoveries, NN - good excuse to really take care of yourself, I think!

Thank you. I'll pass that on to my aunt. She has osteoarthritis, so could possibly benefit.  :-)

I just saw my GP about something else and he said the DWP had contacted him about my PIP.  He said he'd told them I should get it and that he was confident that I would.

I found it difficult, though.  I told him how I'd felt over what he'd written and given me to send to them, how my initial reaction was that it was great, it would really help, and that when I got home and looked at it again, I felt awful when I stopped to think that it was true.  He seemed to understand.

I wonder whether they told him how long my application was.  My additional info plus enclosures added up to about a hundred pages.  The thought the DWP might have told him some of what was in them was humiliating.  Nothing wasn't true, but it was all rather openly expressed.  Page after page after page of how much is wrong with me, how much difficulty I have.  Excruciating.

I suppose if they'd expressed concerns about how bonkers I am, he'd have got in touch with  me, not waited for me to get in touch with him. 

It was very, very kind of him to be so helpful.  He's a very kind man.
