    If you attend make sure you arrive in plenty of time, they'll rebook you if not, also bear in mind CCTV is in the buildings and sometimes on the street outside so if her condition is a mobility one amble in.

    Ffs mate, this sounds stupid. Is there no way her doctor can certify she needs a home visit?

    my daughter has CP cant communicate,has severe behavioural problems , cant talk ,write , hardly walk and hasn't any sense of danger, she had to go to their office for the pip assessment ,my wife had to go with her obviously, but she actually had to attend, my wife seems to think they will come on a home visit but only in extreme cases.

    She would give her right arm to be able to amble anywhere.

    I'm giving serious thought to applying to become a PIP assessor although it would feel a bit like crossing the floor. They pay nurses a lot more than the NHS do and I wonder given the staffing crisis how many have taken this option.

    The training as far as I can make out involves a 2 week residential course which sounds a bit cultist to me. I'd be interested to know besides what you would hope would be education about the many different conditions people suffer from what the messages are about thresholds for payment and the politics generally.

    Too many horror stories to mention about people being denied PIP despite obvious need but also there is the question of how people use their PIP payments. My wife works with long term mental health patients running a day centre, many of her clients get paid more in a month than her.
