I had my tribunal this morning and it has left me totally confused.
It was scheduled for ten and I went in at twenty past. The judge introduced herself and the other two board members. She was very polite and went on to state that they have reviewed the bundle and come to a different points decision from the DWP. Unfortunately, not in my favour. She then explained the possible outcomes and pretty much emphasised that I ould lose my award totally. She has advised that I seek advice and has adjourned the case. She mentioned very briefly, three points of contention. The first one was that she believes that I fail to meet the 50% criteria, although I have been diagnosed CCH since 2003 and in receipt of DLA at the higher rate for both elements. She then mentioned that I work (as a support worker) and that I drive????
I did ask if I could talk and she basically said NO, don't say anything until you have had advice. I'm guessing that I will receive some form of communication from the court explaining everything and highlighting what they need from me for them to make a decision, if I decide to pursue the case??
Anybody got any ideas????
