I have suffered from Cerebellar Ataxia since 2004. This is an incurable, long-term, progressive, incurable neurological condition which affects mobility, balance and coordination. I also have diet-controlled Diabetes Type 2.
I submitted my PIP Claim form (PIP.1003) on 03.05.2017, followed by medical evidence on 17.05.2017. I submitted further evidence and additional information on 12.06.2017.
My medical assessment took place at home on 19.07.2017. This was conducted by a Health Professional contraced to Independent Assessment Services (IAS, formerly Atos Healthcare) and involved a question and answer session and included a medical examination which lasted 180 seconds. The assessment was recorded by prior agreement.
Some of the evidence which I submitted to DWP had not been accessed by IAS and I resubmmitted this information to DWP on 26.07.2017 by recorded delivery. It was delivered on 27.07.2017
