Friday 23rd June 2017 – HMCTS Inform Me My PIP (2nd claim) Appeal Is Postponed, Due To Panel Member Hearing Previous Appeal

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.

“L” even gave me a pack of wipes, and a carrier bag to sit on for the journey back home.
I have since asked the DWP (via Central England Complaints Resolution Team) to clarify what they expect me to do, and the time that I must be expected to travel to appts/work/job interviews, when my sanitary towel can flood in less than a minute, and stain my clothes, and whatever I’m sitting on. I’ve always suffered from heavy periods, but it’s become even worse lately, I pass massive clots, and am losing lots of blood, over a long period, in addition to other problems.
I await their response.

About slowlyrotting

I am constantly having to deal with several different benefits issues. I've got Appeals and Tribunals coming out of my ears. I've lost count of the formal complaints I've had to make. I've kept paper records of most of my interactions with the DWP, HMRC etc for years, so I've literally got several hundred posts (maybe thousands) to compose for this website. I can't post them to here as quick or as often as I'd like to, for a variety of reasons. The piss-poor postal services that HMCTS, HMRC, the DWP, & CSA rely on (bulk printing and several different carriers), compound the ineptitude of these departments and agencies. I intend to go back years, eventually. But at this rate, I don't think I'll ever get to post everything I want to. You can see from what I've put up so far that I've got a lot of crap to deal with. I'm probably not even 1% or 2% done. I am slowly rotting....................
