Call them and say you will be appealing and ask for the appeal form and all of the evidance from any information they got from your GP etc so you know whats been said...

You will have to appeal against what you feel is wrong by what they say with reasons why and proof/any evidence to back your claim.

You can ask the CAB for advice and help

No just fill the form out and send it off. I think you may have 4 weeks from the date of the letter to do this within ?

Take all the informatio they took against your decision you feel is not right and explain your reasons for this and add any extra information you can with any hospital notes/back up letters.

You can call them and them to send all the papers they had which they made there decision on like any GP notes and wait til that arrives as you somtimes find your GP may not have put in as much as you would have liked or covered certain areas or in some cases put alot of *no record*

This may take a while tho for them to send out but hould be within enough time for the 4 weeks deadline.

Sometimes you can call them and explain over the phone why you disagree with there decision and they will advice you on what to do next.

It can be many weeks for an appeal to be looked into again or months we dont know its how busy they are and if they need to ask for more information or wait for more info.

If they have contradicted anything you wrote on the claim form. ie: If you said, you cannot walk more than 50 yards unaided, yet they have put you can, point this out on the appeal form.
Also, with mine, the made their decision from a form a GP filled in at my surgery. It wasn't my normal GP, so the one filing in the form actually wrote 'I don't know' on most the questions. I asked how a decision could be made using that lack of info and also why they had not used any info from my Rheumotologist consultant since they wrote to me months previous saying they werre writing to him. So go through all their reasons for refusal and if any are the opposite of what you know you wrote then point them out. Also, when I was given a date that the appeal would be heard on, I was asked if I would attend. But I wrote back saying I would be unable to attend due to not being able to travel on public transport and due to being on my feet too long, but also because of my anxieties and panic attacks I would not be able to cope being there. They will watch you if you go and see how you manage.
Hope some of this helps.
