TOPIC: PIP Appeal and GP report

PIP Appeal and GP report 4 months 5 days ago #226129

My PIP claim has been decided and I have only got 6 its instead of an expected 19pts for daily living activities. The DWP say they have based their decision, amongst other things, on a GP report. I have since discovered a PIP form was made out by a doctor whom I have never met or had any dealings with. In my mandatory reconsideration letter should I bring this into question? I am hoping to get a copy of the report from my surgery so I can see in detail how this unknown to me GP has answered

I have moved your post to its own topic you replied to a post from over two years ago.

Yes, you should raise concerns about the GP's report but you need sight of it first and you will need to explain how the report could be at odds with your problems if it was compiled from your medical records.

Also, speak to your normal GP about what has happened to find out whether they can provide a letter correcting the issue with the first one.

I have requested this report and am hopeful that I will see a copy of it within the next day or two. My GP [ or should I say any GP that is available at my surgery ] has had very little input regarding my conditions. I have telephone consultations to avoid a risk of infection when in need of antibiotics. I saw a doctor in August 2017 who referred me to a musculoskelatal department who diagnosed sciatica and the need for MRI scan. As a result I was referred to a surgeon and was operated on in June 2018 for a trapped nerve and disc herniation L4/l5 vertebrae. I was discharged from this consultant 3 months after surgery. I see two consultants for my auto-immune condition. Combined respiratory in November 2017 with a 9month outpatient appointment. I am still waiting for my next appointment and am on the out-patient waiting list. My rheumatologist last saw me in May 2018 and I am waiting for the next 9monthly out-patient appointment.. Should I contact the consultants to make a report?

You have nothing to lose by contacting the consultant for a report.
