TOPIC: Are there any guides on the site for Asthma/copd?

Are there any guides on the site for Asthma/copd? 1 week 5 days ago #238370

Are there any helpful guidance notes on Asthmatic and COPD sufferers that also have some of the other medical conditions mentioned here.

I have already downloaded the fibromyalgia, mobility and depression abstracts, diary_templates. But I can't find anything relating to Asthma/copd. I know that a written letter from a locum at my old doctor surgery (closed due to retirement) really helped at my ESA Appeal. The Doctor that wrote it was a specialist in that area, who had retired but came to my GPS as a locum for a number of years a few days a week.

Any advice would be appreciated as currently trying to fill in PIP claim form. I was on a lifetime award of DLA but not due to move over to PIP
Thanking in advance.

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

We don't and a quick search did not find anything on the internet.

PIP does not consider the condition but rather the limitations that result from it so two people could have COPD and score very differently from each other.

Have you looked at our PIP Claim guide?
