I have finally gotten my date for my PIP assessment and as I requested, it will be held at my home… It’s been quite a long wait since they recieved my paperwork 17th of May 2014.. so 33 weeks in total. I only got a home assessment because I asked for one and I said I didn’t know how I would be feeling on the day, if I was physically able to drive to my nearest centre for assessment (Brentwood apparently.. 45 minutes each way drive away..) or not and as I had waited for such a long time I wouldn’t want to delay my assessment. The nice lady on the phone said the only way I would fit the criteria for a home assessment is if I had to have home visits from my GP… (??????? 🙁 ) I told her I have never gone to see my GP in relation to having MS as the Neuro and MS nurse are only 5 minutes drive away at our local hospital…(With parking). She did say I could get a taxi to and from the center.. pay for it and claim it back… God knows how much that would cost.. maybe £80/£90 🙁 and then wait what 33 weeks for the refund..??!!!.. anyway all is good.. home visit in a week.. decision could be 4-8 weeks after then.. but better get swatting up on my leaflets so I’m quite prepared.. all crossed (If I could) 😀
