Normally you do a written appeal first then if you still do not agree with the outcome then it goes to a tribunal.

She needs to phone them and ask for a reconsideration. Someone else will then look at it and make a decision. if they still say no, she will have to go to appeal. I didn't go to my appeal as i was too unwell.

It took me a year to get ESA support group and DLA, no PIP in this area yet.
