After a PIP consultation, is the form you ask the DWP for a copy of still called a PA4 Medical Consultation Report please.

Thank you.

It is a PA4 but asking for the assessment report should be sufficient.

Dear Moderators,
When I called the DWP and asked for copy of assessment report I was told that they had to pass it to a case manager for permission for it to be sent and that they did not have the authority to send it to me, is this normal ?
Thanks.

It's not usual, is there any reason that the information might be considered as Harmful to you, this would explain the additional requirement.

Dear Moderators,

I have received my PA4 report.
11 Points for Daily Living and 4 points for Mobility. Duration is for 2 years.

I am very surprised that I did not score anything for activity 7. Communicating verbally. I wear a hearing aid and I had it in on the day of the consultation, shouldn't I have scored b. needs to use an aid to hear ?

I am also very surprised at the fact that the assessor has only given me a 2 year period, I provided evidence that my conditions have been/are long term, 27 years !

I am disappointed that my assessor was a paramedic when I suffer with mental health.

One other point please, my ESA support group was deferred until this December, will this PIP report have any effect on my ESA at all.

Thank you for helping me receive the points that I did and all the long hours and hard work that you all do.

Kind Regards.

You will have to wait and see what the DWP DM awards you, although it's unlikely that they will vary significantly from the assessors recommendations.
