Not sure if this will be of any help to anyone but thought I would post, just in case
Anyway, I have had the PIP Home Visit Assessment today done now. I am supprised to be able to say that it was basically a meeting regarding the form that I had put in.
I had no ‘tests’ asked of me such as the usual 'touch your toes and scratch your nose types, that I have had to do with the DLA before now lol! So grateful about this but really confused now as I thought it would be much more ‘in-depth’ and they would be really testing me on what I can do; i.e. Mobility and things wise. However I wasn’t tested on any of this…
So ummm, what happened to the 20 metre rule thingy?
Saying that I did ‘shuffle’ out to the kitchen to get some Meds stuff, so mayb they were just watching without me realising?
I was told that it would be quite some time before they contacted me as ‘she’ had to go off and write up the report and then passs this on to the ‘decision makers’ and they are ‘very busy with everyones’ claims, so it will take a long time’ she then said to me…
Like we would not know this as everything takes forever with the DWP or anything ‘Govermental’ innit grrrr!!!
The lady that came out was some sort of ‘clinical nurse specialist’ but when I asked her what was her ‘specialist’ she refused to tell me and said that it was her business and she was there about me and not her. ‘Fair nuff’ i told her as no point in fighting bout it is it, specially when I am wiped out again with all this pallarvour.
Wasn’t sure where she was from as she sounded ‘caribbean’ - don’t know if this is relevant?
Well I hope eceryone is as well as can be and hope this helps somebody too…
