TOPIC: Pip medical

Pip medical 1 month 4 weeks ago #195803

Had my F2F at Sheffield. Last Thursday. Handed over care and admin report that was only 2 days old , joint medical statement by two neurosurgeons, full history from doctors dating back to 1969 and list of medications. Interview lasted 30 minutes and most of the questions were directed to my wife as she had accompanied me. No physical test.
Any bets on the outcome welcome?

You can request a copy of the assessment report by contacting the DWP office dealing with your claim.

PIP Decisions are taking about 204 2-4 weeks at the moment.

I think there is a typo in Gordon's message! PIP decisions are currently taking 2 - 4 weeks :)

I have read that you can only get the Medical Report after you get your assement letter, is this correct.

For PIP claims, the claimant can request a copy of the assessor's report before the decision is made. We suggest leaving it a few days for the report to reach DWP.

For ESA claims, it is usual for the claimant to be told they cannot see the report until after the decision has been made.

Phoned 3 weeks ago for a copy of medical face to face. Still waiting but yesterday I had a phone call from DWP . The just asked a few questions and then said they were ready to make a decision. We wait with baited breath.
