            PIP APPLICATIONS

            As a Practice we no longer complete requests from DLA / Attendance allowance / PIP forms OR for supporting evidence.

            We strongly believe that to get an accurate assessment a face to face consultation is vital.  This needs to be carried out by the agency making the decision about your application, not by your GP.
