Welfare Rights / Re: ESA Assessment report

I would not send the report as the DWP will put it aside with the proviso that the descriptors are different and the benefit is still a different criteria.

I see the phrase "X states that he/she receives ESA/PIP/DLA, the criteria for this benefit are not the same. The tribunal are reminded that being in receipt of ESA/DLA/PIP is not indicative of an entitlement to another benefit."

If you want to put the phrases written by the doctor on your PIP form go ahead but the decision maker will look at your PIP form, any evidence you send and the assessment report from your PIP medical.  If there is not enough information there they will access the ESA report.   This is another reason why I said don't send the report, your giving them info they already have.

Thankyou.
My aid for washing and dressing is my sons girlfriend 😂
She has also said on it no physical examination undertaken due to breathlessness and pain.
Thankyou again

I think I'd send the ESA report, and all the other evidence in with your pip form.  The more evidence you have the better.  Cross reference the points on the form, or, the other evidence you have to correspond with the criteria on the pip form.  I didn't fill anything in on the form.   I Just wrote see further evidence.    I typed everything out onto a plain word document.  Make sure you put your name NINO and the heading, for example Washing and bathing etc.  You get points for using aids and appliances, so, make sure you put down everything you use, or, don't use, and, give a reason why not.  The wheelchair example on the ESA assessment report is a good start. 

I also suggest you look at the benefit and work site forum.  Even if you don't join, the forum can be a good way to answer questions you may have about filling in the pip form etc.  Good luck

Hyphenated words are fine, two separate words are fine - as long as they have a connection with what was last posted  >thumbsup<

Thankyou.
It states I can only walk 20-30 metres without stopping. That was a bit of a shock as I thought I could at least do 40.
I did have to stop for at least 15 mins walking from assessment waiting room to room to be assessed.
Even though she wasn’t very nice I am pleased that she read everything I had given her and used past evidence to. Also listened to what I had to say.
Also that she listed what I can and cannot do.
Out of a bad assessment came a positive result
