Request for letter to support PIP claim
PLEASE NOTE LETTER REQUESTS CAN TAKE UP TO 4 WEEKS, SO WE ASK THAT YOU REQUEST THESE WELL IN ADVANCE. MOST LETTERS ARE NON-NHS WORK SO ARE SUBJECT TO A CHARGE
We do not recommend patients requesting letters for support for PIP claims. As this is non-NHS work, the letter will attract a charge. However, you are able to get all the information you require yourself from your medical record, which is available to you online via the Patient Access app. In order to have a successful PIP claim, you need to ensure you have filled the PIP form out thoroughly, ensuring you are clearly detailing the difficulties and disabilities you have in your everyday life.
A doctor's letter will not add anything extra to this as we can only produce a letter from your records. It makes sense for you to do this yourself at no expense to you. All you need to do is to print the problem list and consultations within your medical history and then ensure you reference these in your application. The PIP assessors are looking at how your conditions are disabling you in your daily life, so it is the way you demonstrate this on your application that will help you.
PLEASE CLICK HERE TO SET UP PATIENT ACCESS SO YOU CAN ACCESS YOUR RECORDS ONLINE
If you struggle with setting up online accounts, please ask a friend or family member for help as this is the quickest and easiest method to do this. If this is still a challenge, you can click here to request for a print out of your records from reception.
If you still feel that a letter would be beneficial and you'd like to request it from the practice, please fill the form in below as fully as possible and a member of staff will get back to you with the cost of producing this and the timeframes.
