DWP Phone Call Before Tribunal - PIP 3 months 2 weeks ago #251922

Hah, well after I posted this I went out to pick up my wheelchair and the post arrived.

My hearing is in 2 weeks! I assume it's not been done "on the papers" as this is the only contact I've had. Let's hope my GP can get a letter to me in the next 7 days and my brain fog isn't too bad over the next couple of weeks as I'll need to prepare. :dry:

Remember, your GP must make it clear that they are referring to the Date of the Decision being appealed or you risk the letter being excluded.

Absolutely! My friend said I should mention getting my wheelchair etc today and I had to explain that it's not about "now" it's about when the decision was made.

So it's the date of the original decision and not the date I claimed that matters? In any case, the issues have been ongoing for several years but I'll make a point to ask them to include/reference the date.

Also, now a hearing has been booked is there no chance a judge will consider a decision on the papers or could it still happen?

If a hearing has been scheduled then there will not be a Paper based Decision.

Thanks Gordon.

Could you clear up the date issue too? I know I have to ask my GP to reference the right date for the supporting evidence but which date is it?

Date of claim? Assessment? Date on the award notice letter? etc
