TOPIC: An unsual award

An unsual award 1 year 4 months ago #214066

Firstly a big thanks to this organistaion for help on my application and mandatory re c onsideration.

I saw the awful assessor who gave me NIL points despite an up to date full pyschiatric report which said I was at high risk of self neglect. I applied for a MR and was given 11 points for daily living & 8 for mobility. I got standard rate on both elements for 10 years. I was very suprised I was given no points for prompting on toilet needs as I had them for prompting on washing and dressing and the toileting is no different. This would have given me 12 points. I was also suprised I had 8 points for pyscholgical distress in going out, as I thought that would be not so easy. All in all I am OK with this......I think I would win an appeal but I cant stand the stress....also they may increase the rate and shorten the length so I will be grateful for what I got...many thanks once again

Glad to hear that you have an award that you can be happy with.

You can change your mind about the appeal as long as you do so within 13 months of the date of the original Decision.
