I received a letter today, (dated 22/06/2017) from HMCTS. My PIP (2nd claim) Appeal, which was due to be heard soon, has had to be postponed, as a Tribunal Panel member has heard a previous Appeal of mine, and therefore is excluded from hearing any further Appeals of mine.
I first applied for PIP (1st claim) in 2013. Tribunal rejected my claim in 2015. The Health Professional’s Report was a poorly-written piece of tat, started by the woman that assessed me, and finished 5 months later by a different HP.
I made a 2nd claim for PIP. I’ve been unable to get legal assistance.
I’ve got several, worrying, health problems/symptoms. I’ve been asking for help from my GP, the DWP, and several other organisations for years. Apart from hospital transport to one specific hospital, I get zero help. So I’ve been unable to have any health investigations/treatment for all of my most alarming health symptoms.
My GP Surgery has a rigid policy of refusing to provide “Letters of support” in relation to benefit claims. I’ve lost so much blood over the last couple of weeks. I usually have heavy periods, and irregular bleeding. I started bleeding again on 8th June, fairly light until 13th June, but since 14th June I’ve been losing lots of blood, and passing huge, frequent, blood clots. When I attended Erdington Jobcentre, for my Signing appt on 20th June, I stained a chair at Erdington Jobcentre, and “L” (I don’t know whether there’s more than one “L” there, or not), who was on the ground floor, was very thoughtful and helpful, and arranged for me to have my signing appt in a private room, and to sit somewhere more discreet afterwards, as my clothing was also stained, as I waited for my lift back home.
