That's terrible!!! They have no idea how bad you really are. I wouldn't give in to this as it's what they want to do. From what I've heard they ask you in the meeting how you got there and I you say you got there by train or so on they basically regect you! It's disguising. It shouldn't matter where you live, they are meant to carry out a service of assessment and if they want that then they should most definitely come
to you. You must be so frustrated, I know I would be. I'd try giving them another call if so a complaint!

I wish you the best!!

What a bunch of w***ers. How on earrth did they come to that conclusion before they have even met you. This whole PIP thing is an absolute joke. They are bullying and targeting people who need help the most. Please don't give in to them. If they cannot get to you then they need to issue PIP to you without the face 2 face. Don't give in to them if you are unable to get to them. It's what they want so it can save them more money. Hope you get it sorted

:welcome: to our little sanctuary pedaller.

Sorry to hear what is happening wrt your PIP claim and a lack of home visits. You would expect that both companies carrying out the assessments would work on the same guidelines and basis.

There have been a few mentions about a supporting letter from a GP, consultant and/or other healthcare peoples who may be involved in your treatment and care helping increase the chances of a home visit being offered. I don't know just how effective it actually is, but might be an option worth considering/looking into if at all possible.

When you have a moment, if you fancy a bobble over to Where To Say Hello it's where you can tell us a little about yourself, your FibroQuest, and what brought you to our FibroFamily if you would like to do so :cow-wave: :cow-wave: :cow-wave: :cow-wave:
