Successful MR 1 year 10 months ago #220656

Just a quick note to let you know I’ve had a successful mandatory reconsideration result!

I was awarded standard care and Mobility at review following a f2f. Care the same but mobility reduced. I requested a copy of the f2f report and it was awful, though the medical itself was distressing the report was mixed truth and lies eg my dog’s name is right, but apparently I struggle to talk to the mums at the school gates - my children are home educated! But no questions about my kids education came up.

I have a chronic illness which has deteriorated and am under gp care. My go wrote me a brilliant letter explaining the severity of my health right now, that I cannot use aids to help me walk due to one of my conditions. This was where the points were put up. If they had acknowledged mine and the gps version throughout my care would have gone up but sadly the assessor’s opinion won here.

After a whopping 13 weeks of letting me hold on to it my motability car was returned on Friday, the same day as the decision was made.

My mental health has been seriously affected. Risking an award which could be changed to nothing. enduring a cold winter and being made to be a liar has taken its toll. But thanks to this wonderful site and your invaluable resources I feel supported at my loneliest, most stressful time. I am certain that without benefits and work I wouldn’t have made it through successfully.

I will never attend a f2f without a recorder. I also made an official complaint to Atos (patronising 4 page response explaining the process), and made it clear I would pursue this to appeal.

Huge thanks to all at b&w
