You must first complete the GL24 or send in a letter specificially saying you wish to appeal.
You will need to give extra evidence that you may have including doctors / neuros / nurses information to support the appeal. The DWP will not have consulted with any specialist before making the original decision. It is not part of the process. They would have used your comments on the application plus results of the ATOS medical.
Ask for a copy of the medical report. A decision Maker will then re-assess your claim and may call you to discuss the appeal.
If their decision remains the same then the case will go to tribunal.
I have not gone through this yet but to some extent can understand the difficulties the DWP have as many MSers are still able to work so the illness is not a one size fits all decision when looking at work capability.
Just because some msers can’t walk does not mean they can’t work. Everyone is different. I have worked from a wheelchair in the past.
Good luck with the appeal.
Maybe my post looied like I only had walking problems?
No I have others like cannot cook a meal cannot dress myself, cannot self propel a wheelchair.
I only mentioned the walking part because you only need the 15 points from that I believe to be placed in the support group?
As also mentioned one size does not fit all and it would be nice if these doctors who assess you had some idea about the condition and not put things on the report like “In six months should be able to return to work” when I am actually primary progressive
