TOPIC: Benefits and Work Request for GP comment form

Benefits and Work Request for GP comment form 2 months 5 days ago #214754

Dear B&W I've just become a member and have been looking at your excellent resources for PIP. Re: the Request for GP comment form, is the idea that you get your GP to fill this in and then you submit it, with the template cover letter, to the DWP as supporting evidence with your claim? With thanks.

Welcome to the forum, you might want to have a look at the following FAQ which explain where everything is

Welcome to Benefits and Work

Yes you give it to your GP but discuss it with them first to make sure that they are willing to complete the form and to find the best way for them to understand your problems so they can effectively complete it.

Thanks for this Gordon. So it is OK to submit the form and cover letter as completed by the GP to the DWP as part of supporting evidence (providing the GP has filled it in accurately of course)?

Thanks, TT.

It's entirely up to you what you submit with your claim. :)

Thank you for this Gordon. Sorry to bang on, but I just want to be sure it is a good idea to submit the form and cover letter and that the DWP won't think I have been overly-prescriptive. I am just worried about sending them in as part of my claim if that's the case. If you could just be ultra-clear for me on this point I would really appreciate it. Thanks and sorry to come back to you on this again.

I feel you are over thinking this :)

The GP Notes are a perfectly reasonable piece of evidence in support of your claim, assessors and Decision Makers deal with doazens of claims at a time and you need to find a way of making the information in yours stand out.
