Hi all, went to see my GP this morning to ask for an OT referral for a wheelchair.
While I was there I asked her about how to get a letter from her when I get my ESA application form (I’m still on IB).
It wasn’t till I got outside that I was overcome with a fit of paranoia… what if she thinks I only want the wheelchair to help with my ESA application!!!
In my head I hadn’t connected the two things until then!
Also, she said that I don’t need to ask her for a letter, that ‘they’ (Atos or DWP?) will ask her for a letter.
Is that correct?
I was under the impression that it is better to send a GP’s letter in with your application.
Thanks for any advice…
