TOPIC: DLA - does home visit doc see entire claim form

DLA - does home visit doc see entire claim form 7 years 1 month ago #15039

i am in the process of going for my first DLA claim. whilst following all the advice one thing just occurred to me - i have a very erratic memory and i can cause problems and it got me to wondering if the doctor that does the home visit actually sees the entire claim form or if they are just given a basic overview of it.

i am wondering because as advised in the leaflets i am using lots of examples - and some of them are on the bizarre side. is it likely the doctor will already have read about them and be curious or might i have to go over them again - as i am likely to forget to.

Hi Estelle,

I think you should assume that even if the visiting doctor does have access to your whole claim form that it is unlikely that the will have read it in detail and have remembered it.

If theer are things you think it is inportant for the doctor to hear it is worth making a list or trying to have someone with you to remind you.

Good luck,
