DLA to PIP with no face to face 4 years 11 months ago #182199

Mods please feel free to move condense as you see fit I have not posted before so I am not sure of house rules.
I got the fantastic news yesterday that my partner had been moved from DLA to PIP with no face to face for 6 year period.
Previous high rate care stayed the same and mobility form lower to enhanced.
All I can say is it is only through following advice on here (even though it took 4 days of modifying!)
Partner suffered a stroke several years ago and it affects his thoughts/reasoning more than physical.
He does not have a lot of medical history since the stroke as it was realised he could only be helped no medical appointments were going to make him better so I was apprehensive to say the least.
One thing I was armed with was...as advised...a letter from GP stating that a F2F interview would cause distress and a home interview would not be a lot of good to his health also due to stress/anxiety/mixing with strangers etc.
I also fit as much information as possible and more on the forms explaining everything.
Whether further information was asked for from GP I do not know but the whole process only took 2 months from start to finish.
When the brown envelope arrived you could have knocked me down with a feather I thought it was appointment letter.
I can only say the membership money paid for information off this site will be the best you ever spend I have been a member for about six years and renew anyway just to keep abreast of changes.
Sincere thanks.
