just received letter confirming they have received my pip2 form thanking me for allowing them to use information on my DLA form but saying unfortunately there was not any medical evidence enclosed, they asked for my doctors particulars which i gave thinking they would contact my doctor and that there would be no need for me to supply them with medical evidence could you please explain what happens next regards George

The Assessment Provider for your postcode will decide whether you need a face to face assessment and if this is the case contact you with an appointment.

If not then they will carry out an assessment on the paperwork that they have available and make a recommendation to the DWP.

hi i have not been on for a while as i was waiting for a date for my f2f which i received just this morning my appointment is for the 13th june what i would like to ask is although i said in my ppi form i did not use a wheel chair as i have carpal tunnel and i could not propel it but i do have a chair which has to be pushed as i am unfamiliar with the place where i have to attend such as the distance i would have to walk as my walking is very limited would it be appropriate to use this wheelchair bearing in mind i dont know what my condition will be like on the day regards George

If you would normally use the chair when out, then I would use if for the assessment, but I would check that the venue is wheelchair accessible, not all the centres are and some have the assessment rooms on upper floors which create a health and safety issue.
