    me they will send a health professional to my house on fri 24/06/16 and I
    am worried as I do not have a lot of contact with gp or hospitals,have been
    on dla mob high rate from92 and care high from 2013 as I have beckers
    muscular dystrophy and apart from handrails and stair lift I do not have
    a lot of a medical history apart from 3 leg breaks over the years.Very worried
    about outcome.
    Well that's face to face assessment done at home over if health professional report is as good as she
    said I should not be worried but she did say it is not up to her but dwp but will have to wait and see
    what points I get.(was told she would recommend both mobility and care high)Will wait and see.
    Nurse that did assessment did seam to understand my disability and how it affects me, will post
    update when I get decision.

    After phoning pip every week for the past 3 weeks(had my ftf at home last week in June) was told it is with the dm
    and that they had all the info they need to make a decision and would write to me when they had and when on phone I asked if I could
    get a copy of the apr report and it looks like I got 16 points for care and 12 for mobility. Hope dm agrees with it
