TOPIC: Medical Report

Medical Report 8 years 7 months ago #17536

  • wordy
I got a medical report from my GP last week. It states that I have got problems with my bladder and with my mobility. It does not however go into the 'nitty gritty' of my illnesses e.g. that I cannot fully control my bladder and that I cannot walk further than 30 yards (it says problem causes great impingement on mobility), but it does give a good outline of what has probably caused the problems and that the conditions are chronic and long term.

Do you think the report is good enough? I hope so it cost me £50!

I am applying for ESA and DLA

Many thanks

You need to bear in mind that boards like this can never provide advice to individual claimants about their specific circumstances, all we can offer is general information about how the system works.

This is because there are huge range of factors which could affect your eligibility and it’s not possible or advisable for you to disclose that information on a public forum or for us to ask you the kind of questions that would be required. This also applies to personal opinions that cannot be substantiated due to a lack of evidence.

We understand that this can be frustrating and that it’s sometimes a question of judgement about the degree to which a question is specific to your claim or more general in nature. But, for our sake and your own it is important that we do our best to stick to giving information rather than advice.

So, for advice about a specific advice you need to contact an advice agency if at all possible.

No problem as other existing members are also prone to make the same mistake.

Hi and welcome to B & W.

It's advisable for all new members, and indeed current members from time to time to read the thread in Spotlights click> WAIT! Is the answer to your query already here?

Best wishes.
