TOPIC: Doctors supporting letter

Doctors supporting letter 11 months 1 week ago #192853

Hi, I have sent my pip2 form back with lots of supporting evidence from various medical professionals but, was just looking at the original copies i am now thinking the GP letters of support maybe not enough.
The first letter that was written was in fact last year as I was expecting to have to change over from DLA then but only just been asked, however, I copied the template and filled it all in as I didn't think the GPwould have the time to do all that, she agreed with everything on the template, and then wrote a covering letter to send off with it to say she agreed what was written.
I have since asked for another up to date letter and she has written that she sees me regularly, always with my husband and in her opinion I am severely disabled with my illnesses.
I have sent these along with all the other consultant letters etc, I am wondering if the GP letters will be ok, or should I ask for more info?
I have had a letter to say they have received firm, and am just waiting now to see about appointment for f2f from Capita.
Thank you for all your help

Thank you

I'm afraid I can't really comment, it depends on what the letter say and what other information you included in your PIP2. I've seen people get the highest rate with just a single diagnosis letter and others fail with 100s of pages of information.
