TOPIC: Should I complain?

Should I complain? 7 months 3 weeks ago #200308

I have just received my pip letter and decision. Even though I have continued on the same amount financially the amount hasn't changed which is good but the HP who came to my house was a"bully" my husband and daughter were with me at home when she came. In spite of her making me cry My appointment was for a visit miles away initially. My GP wrote a letter to explain that I had problems "going outside" so they decided on a home visit. When I read my report she chose to ignore the reason my dr gave for not leaving the house I am just concerned that when my review comes up again in two years time., they will not see by her report that I am in fact agoraphobic. My daughter wants to phone and complain, but I don't know wether to or not. Do you think it will affect the initial decision.

Sorry to ramble

Complaining to the Assessment Provider is a separate process from challenging the Decision.

Whether you should do so is something only you can decide on.

If you can show specific errors in the report or discrepancies in what was reported versus what you remember happening, then I would encourage you to think about doing so.

Thanks Gordon
I may do so, as I wouldn't want her to upset another person.

Many Thanks
