Welcome to the forum, you might want to have a look at the following FAQ which explains where everything is

Welcome to Benefits and Work

I assume this is in relation to PIP.

You can request a copy of the report by contacting the DWP office dealing with your claim.

Yes it is DLA to PIP. I was given the highest rate of both the care and mobility components of DLA for LIFE in 1994!
The sickening thing is IF the government hadn't robbed me of 6 years of my pension (which I wont get now until Im 66), I would have been 'safe' and would be remaining on DLA. However as I have 4 years to go until my OAP kicks in now, I stand to lose everything. It seems to me that being a DLA recipient meant that disabled people could carry on living a life, and I was told when applying for it that that's exactly what the allowance was for...to enable people to carry on working, enjoying life, pursuing hobbies etc, but to get the highest rate of PIP it seems that shouldn't be possible anymore. Goodness knows what I will do without my car if I don't get the high rate of PIP... doesn't bear thinking of.

Im sorry Gordon, maybe Im being thick but I still cant find the information which says if I can apply for a copy of my medical report at any time or whether I have to wait until I get my decision through. The assessor spent the 1 hour 55minutes in my home trying to catch me out. It was absolutely mentally and physically exhausting.
