TOPIC: Transfer from DLA to PIP

Transfer from DLA to PIP 1 month 2 weeks ago #171180

I finally received my HA report from DWP. I am astounded at the assumptions inferred from the informal observations and the 'embroidery' - could be worse from what I have read.

It is littered with a lot of abbreviations and I see you have dealt with most of these elsewhere.
I am not sure what FH is - can it be family history? surprised if so because this seems to mean so little in mental health now - it is all mindfulness?

However the HP signed herself as a Nurse/DA- any idea what DA is - thought she was a paramedic?

Your help as always most appreciated.

I can't find anything for Nurse/DA you I suspect it means Disability Assessor or some such reference.

"FH" could be family history but that is not on the standard list of questions, so I'm doubtful but cannot think of anything else it could mean.

HI Melan,

The other use of 'FH', in my experience, is to denote 'foetal heart' - I'm assuming this does not apply to you?? :ohmy:

Hi Melan,

FH appeared a lot on my assesment report and I took it to be Functional History.

Thank you both for your help.
No Mrs H, 'foetal heart' does not apply to me.
From reading something just now, it appears to denote Functional History?
(maybe deduced from History of Conditions?)
Amazing to me how in the space of time so much evaluation
can be determined???
