TOPIC: DECISION CHANGED - APPEAL CANCELLED

DECISION CHANGED - APPEAL CANCELLED 9 years 5 months ago #20749

  • aarmic
Hi, just wanted to share the good news. Feb of this year i put in a DLA appeal as i felt that i had not been given the right care component for my disability, and had received nothing for my mobility.

Two weeks ago unexpectedly i received two letters one from the DWP stating that an EMP would be visiting me,the second letter from medical services stating that the EMP would be visiting me the next day, talk about short notice. Not being fazed by this the EMP visited me the next day, carried out an examination, asked me a series of questions noted them down then left, i would say he was with me for approx 1hr.

Today i received a letter from the DWP stating that due to a recent medical report which i am unaware of and the recent report carried out by the EMP they were changing their decision and that in addition to my care component they would be awarding me HRM indefinitely, and that it was therefore not necessary for me to continue with my appeal. I am absolutely chuffed with the outcome and would like to say to those of you going through the appeals process, please dont give up, I almost did at the beginning but found that strength of determination to continue and i hope you can to.

Hi aarmic,

Congratulations, that's an excellent result and does show that not all DLA medical visits are a bad thing.

Thanks for letting us know - that's three bits of good news on the trot I've just replied to, it isn't Christmas is it?
