  1. Thanks I tried to find the original threads to add this new one but couldn't find it.
  2. I post a thread on here a while back. I'm on Income Support was sent an ESA50 form by the DWP to claim ESA. Filled in esa50 form requested a home f2f assessment and recording. Maximus said dwp decision maker refused me home f2f assessment which was a lied cut a long story short after several cancellations of my f2f assessment being victimised, harassed, disadvantaged and still not allowing me a home f2f assessment I made a full complaint to Maximus the company. Got complaint decision back by email they apologise multiple times even true to their word they would cancelled my f2f assessment if they didn't make their decision by the assessment date. Received a letter from maximus they've cancelled the ESA f2f assessment itself and told me they've sent my esa50 form and file back to the dwp. I haven't heard anything back from the dwp. I got no intention of wanting to find out my income support payment is carrying on as normal why open a can of worm. What I would like to know if anyone has had their esa f2f cancelled and their file sent back to dwp what was the outcome. My gp has since put me on telephone call appointment only and so has the psychiatrist because I cannot leave the house due to severe anxiety and panic attacks.
  3. It worked with you and may not work with others besides I don't think I would tell my GP to prescribe me such and such medicine it won't look right. You receive benefit because you are not fit to work it shouldn't matter what medicine you are prescribe by your GP. I have my genuine reasons. Don't want to sound rude but I'm a reserved person and not very good as sharing to much of my life history to the world. I found exactly the template I was looking for from the citizen advice website. Yes Maximus has accepted about the recording of my f2f. Thanks for your reply.
  4. Begging your pardon I'm not on benzodiazepines the fact that it has many side effects which can compromise one's medical and will definitely make them fail if they are not aware or understand what the HCP asking of them. If you cannot give a proper answer please do not give one at all. Maximus must under the equality act make reasonable adjustments and not discriminate or disadvantage a person because of their disability. Stress or not never give in to those contractors I would urge any claimant to fight for their rights especially if their case is genuine. Too many times people are either petrified of the dwp and their contractors and give way to them that gives those fraudsters the reasons to treat vulnerable people worse than animals.
  5. Cutting a very long story short. Applying for ESA first time in January two letters were enclosed with the ESA50 form requesting a home visit and recording for a ESA F2F assessment. Received Maximus letter for ESA f2f assessment at beginning of April at one of their medical centres. Rang Maximus and told them there was no letter from them to give the reasons why a home visit was not granted. Was told by Maximus the DWP Decision Maker has disallowed the home visit. Rang DWP and told them Maximus said the DM has refused a home visit and and asked the reasons why. Was told by the DWP staff that is was wrong the DWP's DM do not make any decision with regards to home visit nor get involve with F2F assessment that is the job of Maximus their medical contractor. Went back to Maximus and told them what DWP said the appointment was cancelled. Received couple of phone calls from Maximus requesting a letter from the GP to back up the home visit request. GP faxed letter to Maximus stating cannot attend a f2f at a centre due to medical/clinical reasons. Maximus confirmed by phone that they have received the GP supporting letter at the beginning of May 2018 and was told they will send a letter of their decision about the home visit by four different staff. Received several letters to attend appointments at different dates from Maximus including a phone call to ring them very important and very urgently with regards to a f2f at their centre which was to take place some 3 weeks later strange. Each time received a phone call two days before the appointments due date to cancel appointments because their recording machine is broken and that it will take a very long time before hearing from them. Received another letter last week to attend yet another appointment at their centre at the beginning of July but still received no letter with regards to the home visit whether it has been granted or refused. Non of the cancellation letters stating appointments was cancelled because of broken recording machines it just said appointment rescheduled sorry for the inconvenience. Maximus has on record they've book for a Taxi as their making reasonable adjustment but send no letter stating that fact. New appointment letter had not stated a Taxi has been booked for the appointment it just said please attend 10 minutes before the appointment time. I'm looking for a template letter with regards to disability discrimination and harassment from Maximus/contractor and a sample letter under the equality act 2010 requesting a home visit with regards to Maximus making reasonable adjustments for a f2f assessment under the equality act. Any help will be appreciated.
  6. Hi All, I found out from the mum that her daughter actually got 10 point "Cannot follow the route of an unfamiliar journey without another person, assistance dog or orientation aid" but on the PIP claim form I have written “Cannot follow the route of a familiar journey without another person, an assistance dog or an orientation aid”. Does “Cannot follow the route of an unfamiliar journey without another person, assistance dog or orientation aid" give you low mobility PIP? Or no mobility at all? Thanks in advance.
  7. Thank you so much yes this is exactly what I'm asking how to go about requesting a mandatory reconsideration.
  8. Thanks for your reply. The claimant has Autism and her mother has a tracking device on her iphone so she could track her whereabouts because she get lost and then panic and cannot get home by herself and get violent outburst which has been written in her report. The problem I am having is how to write the reconsideration letter to the dwp, I know what to write about her disability and everything else. I'm just having problems its how to ask the dwp for a request of re-consideration. There are no sample letter about that I can follow.
  9. Thank you for your reply appreciate it. The PIP form has already been completed and sent off my friend child got enhanced Care but low mob, the dwp already got all the hospital, doctors, any other person involved in her child autism case, I think the dwp has enough evidence but I will tell her to get in touch with her doctor with with regards to the pip low mobility. I have already done a SAR and will add on the reconsideration letter that a SAR has also been done that should help a bit.
  10. Thanks for your reply and for those tips appreciate it, I have written them similar in the PIP form it's just wanted a sample letter how to write the reconsideration letter.
  11. Hello All, Can someone please tell me where I can find a sample letter or how to draft a letter asking the DWP for a PIP reconsideration. I've never written one before and I've been helping an autism to fill in her PIP she just got a reply back to say that her daughter has got the enhanced care but lower rate mob. I have filled in the criteria properly the letter says she did not get enhanced because her daughter can walk more than 250 yards. Her daughter has autism disorder and Cannot follow the route of a familiar journey without another person, when she's been out alone in her local she's had the police called twice on her because of her violent behaviour which has been written in her reports by the hospital, I've read through her reports myself and the DWP still gave her 0 point. We need to argue her case. Any prompt reply would be much appreciated. Many thanks. Helen
  12. So happy for you, we've had good news today also my friend got all her money backdated and today was told she is in the ESA support group without being call for a medical at ATOS and her work-focus interview has been cancelled.
