Got word today that my medical appeal was successful and it only took them 2 weeks after receiving it to make the decision
I couldn't get my original GP to even entertain the idea that he was wrong in his initial assessment when he sent off my application so I went through the process of changing GPs. Since there wasn't much to do in the way of providing medical evidence about my so called "condition" my new GP gave me a full look over and then wrote that in his opinion my first GP was mistaken and that he didn't believe there would be an issue.
Now awaiting my date for selection which is being rushed though Fingers crossed I will have a job offer within the next month
Can I ask how you worded your appeal letter? I’m going through a similar problem but with a once only rash on my hand 8 years ago which was entered on my records as eczema, the doctor has written to say it was unlikely eczema but my first appeal got rejected. I’m wondering if we’re writing the appeal all wrong. I have an appointment with a dermatologist and have sent a complaint to the GP to have my medical records amended. But I’m wondering how to word my next appeal.
