TOPIC: GP DLA Report Form

GP DLA Report Form 7 years 7 months ago #44581

  • carricklady
Does anyone know if the forms the DLA sends to G.P.s and Consultants is on this site?

If not, does anyone know the questions asked in it? I am seeing my GP next week before I send my DLA form back so it would be really useful to know what questions she is likely to be asked.

Thanks very much

Hi,

We don't have copies of factual report forms on the site, but I am going to ask for copies.

But there's some information about the guidance given to GPs here:

Good luck,

Steve
