It's unusual, but not that unusual. You should have been given a request to authorise access to your records, it's up to you whether you allow it or not, although it may be to your advantage to allow it.

Once the records have been produced, you will receive a copy, a new hearing will be scheduled.

hello Gordon , the tribunal got my medical records from2010 up to date, do you know what type of questions I am likely to be asked at the tribunal from the medical records, the judge from my first hearing said the hearing will take about an hour, just worried they going to ask me a lot of questions also they said I will have a different panel. do you know why I cannot have the same panel from the first hearing? also do you think the panel at my first tribunal hearing will pass on information from my first hearing,

I'm afraid I can't guess what questions they may ask about your medical records, it may be nothing it could be quite a lot, they will be looking for consistency with the information you supplied in your claim form.

Other than that their focus will be on why you think that you meet the criteria for an award.

I would expect the hearing to be 45-50 minutes.

It's a new panel to avoid any possibility of bias or confusion over what is contained in your papers, it will be some time before a new hearing is convened and it would be easy for the original panel to confuse issues from your papers with information from other appeals. It's standard to use a new panel.
