    Default Re: DLA doctor visit today

    Sadly no. It is up to the decision maker at the DWP to decide that, it may be that the doctor will submit a good report with recommendations but it is still the decision makers job to interperate that report and decide. If they have got all the evidence they need, I would imagine you may hear in the next 2 to 3 weeks. If not ring them and ask.

    If they do turn you down you can appeal. With that in mind, now may be a good time to make a few notes about what happened at the doctors visit today. What he asked you, what you think he could of asked about but didn't, if it is relevant to your claim. Did he examine you, did he see you walking, did he check all your medication, that sort of thing. You may never need it but it is worth taking some brief notes just in case for future reference.

    I hope you get a good result soon, if you need any help let us know on the forum, we will help where we can.

    thank you. yes i was examined and she confirmed my condition and she told me the problems i would have things like not being able to wash my own hair
    the doc had asked me before this who washed my hair and i told her my wife did this
    also because i have dizziness she said that there was no way she would want me to go up the stair incase i fell down them
    she asked me to get up and walk about 5 feet and back and then she checked my pulse which was racing and told me to stop worrying everything would be ok and she went.
    Another thing which i thought was strange i didnt counter sign the form she filled in

    If you got DLA you must be under 65- working age so have you tried for ESA?.your DLA wont be counted so ,if you've no other income, on you wifes earnings you should apply for appliedd for council tax and rent rebate ( if you are a renter) Also with you getting middle care allowance your wife should applie for carers allowance. Although she earns to much money to get the actual allowance, I believe she would qualify for the 'carers premium' which will help reduce your council tax even further

    All so if you claim tax credits inform them as there is a disability premium on there also.
