medical records

Postby fmfm2013 » Sun Sep 01, 2013 6:58 pm

2 hours home visit with ATOS doctor and he tells me I do not have Fibromyalgia.
Says it is something else and I need a scan. ( can’t remember the term he used ,in shock) within 2 weeks I get a decision, no DLA whatsoever apparently I have gotten better since my last claim in 2010.

While pulling together evidence to be ready for CAB visiting to get appeal rolling my GP surgery informed me that the DWP had not been in touch, IE no form was sent out to the surgery yet this is supposed to happen automatically.

My main Question though is why aren't my medical records checked by DWP before receiving the benefit DLA.
No wonder there's so much fraud. :shock:

I read that DWP hardly ever check medical records hence some people just fail benefits automatically as they have no evidence (happened to me).

When I claimed ESA initially, both my GP and consultant were asked for reports about me from the DWP. There was some barely legible scribble on them and neither of the reports was particularly helpful or informative. I had to attend for an Atos medical with this claim as well.

When I put in a claim for DLA, I know for a fact that the DWP used the information from my previous ESA claim, ie - the earlier Atos report that was produced after my medical. I assume the earlier GP and consultant's reports were also used, as they didn't ask for any.

I was told that there isn't any cross over and the two benefit claims are treated separately but that certainly wasn't the case with me.

Might that be the case with you? Have you previously claimed for a different benefit and your reports have been used for your current ESA assessment thus, they were not asked for again?

I hope you get things sorted out and the best of luck with it all.

Lisa - Hi

I agree, The Doctor that visited me at he did not put his diagnosis nor theneed for a scan in his report, at least not in my copy.

I got a brief letter off my doctor to take to CAB with me on Monday but it hasn't got half of what's wrong with me written on it, I have fibromyalgia, clinical depression, disc degeneration and arthritis in my Knees but only the fibromyalgia is on the letter, I have had to write on the bottom of it myself just so they have a clear picture, I've had spinal injection that didn't work and injections in my elbows and shoulders that haven't worked - I have difficulty holding a pen due to pains in my hands so the CAB are doing all my form filling for me - they really do help loads so if you can, get advice off them :)
