Hi all, I just though I would share with you the experiences that we have had so far while claiming for War Pension, maybe to give some of you an idea to the current timeframes etc. My husband has been diagnosed with PTSD and has received help from Combat Stress who then put him onto the SPVA. We began the claim in September 2012 and my husband went for a medical with ATOS in January. He has just last week received a letter from SPVA saying that in order to consider his pension he must attend another medical. The people that are doing the medical phoned today and have arranged his second medical for the 30th of April. I will let you now the outcome of the medical when we know! This second medical though does not seem to be by ATOS and it is not in the same place that he attended before - it is at NHS Parklands Hospital Mental Health Centre in Basingstoke. Does anyone else have any experience with medicals outside of the usual ATOS ones?
