I have a tribunal this month on behalf of my 12 year old daughter. They lowered her claim from middle rate to lower care needs. Her care has not changed, in fact for care of a 12 year child I would say it was increased.


She suffers with severe Atopic Eczema and has been with Great Ormond Street for 6 years. She has been admitted into hospital for intensive treatment twice in six months in the past year. She has it all over her body 90% of the time the rest it covers her arms and legs. DLA have said that she should be doing more for herself at the age of 12 and also her care needs take less than 1 hour a day. In fact it takes at least three but it is really hard to put this across in a DLA form.


Anyway, I have a letter from her nurse specialist at Great Ormond street ready to send to them, was also wondering if I should send them copies of letters we get from the hospital after she has been seen at clinic. She usually goes every three months (its every two weeks at the mo). These would show that her treatment is consistent.


Anything else I should send ??

Id it takes 3 hours, she'd still only get the low rate. Unless she has other disabilities, she would be expected to do most self-care herself.



Both her Doctor and nurse said that I am to do her creams as she cannot cover herself adequately enough. I said ,this time last year she had to start doing craems her self as she was about to go off to secondary school and she isn't want me going to do this forever. She did it herself for few a weeks, massive flare up which we could not get back under control and she ended up spending five days in GOSH xx
