TOPIC: Well, its done!

should I expect a call.........? 2 weeks 7 hours ago #174854

:) as you can see, I now have a different name!

Anyway, seeing a post earlier re: question on the PIP form ....managing treatments, reminded me that I wanted to get your opinion. As i have already submitted my form, your response will be a little redundant, but would appreciate your thoughts.

I informed them I have been diagnosed with Bronchiectasis in October 16, my GP recommended that each morning i have postural drainage done by my husband each morning (15-20 minutes) in addition, that he puts my gels and drops in my eyes when i have a flare up of dry eyes,as i cant squeeze the bottles to release the drops due to stiffness and numbness in my hands, plus, soreness of upper arm muscles. I explained when i did try it not only caused me pain, the drops ended up all over my cheeks instead of going in my eyes.

Do you think they will consider points for my reponse?

Thank you

Well done on getting your name changed!

Do I think you should get points for this descriptor? Yes.

Will DWP share this opinion? Let's wait and see!

If there was any problem then you would have heard by now. We normally expect an appointment letter in 2-3 weeks from returning the form.

Yes, it is the best way of ensuring you use the correct address.
