TOPIC: Extra Medical Information .Where to send it....

Extra Medical Information .Where to send it.... 3 weeks 6 days ago #198020

Thanks Gordon.....

After taking your advice, I started to call the Tribunal Service ASAP, and have been unable to get through to them, despite waiting over 20 Minutes sometimes, which was VERY frustrating....

Anyway, just manged to get through after just 15 Minutes today, and was a bit shocked to hear, its going to be a MINIMUM of 26 Weeks from today. I had to ask again to make sure I heard him rightly TBH.....

However, now I know that, it could be a bonus that I can get a LOT more important Medical Information off to them by the time we get a Hearing, and win the case with that.....

Lets hope that we can survive on the mere pittance we are getting from the DWP nowdays until then though, as its not been easy since our income has dropped drastically, since our DLA went over to this new rate P.I.P. benefit, back in May this Year.......

Mr Roy

I'm genuinely surprised that wait times are that long, your only other option is to write to the TS explaining that you are in financial distress due to the wait, you'll have to explain why and of course you may not be the only person doing this.

It may not work, but it is worth a try.

Extra Medical Information .Where to send it.... 3 weeks 5 days ago #198109

Very Interesting to read that there Mrs Hurtyback.......and its given me an idea....

After finding out yesterday, that the wait for us to get a date for our Tribunal Hearing is a MINIMUM of 26 weeks, which is ridiculous. I have decided that after my Wife's last appt: for a while in late October, I am going to compile a large file of new Medical Information, and a thorough covering letter explaining ALL her problems, and send it off to the Tribunal, and that they will then send it off to the DWP, and HOPEFULLY they will then change their decision of P.I.P. to what we believe is correct benefit award, without us having to go to the Tribunal, as my Wife is dreading it TBH.......after already having suffered 2 W.C. A. and 1 P.I.P. assessment already.....

Fingers Crossed, Eh Folks......
