    In this article is says that naming and shaming may be the only effective weapons we have. I am all for this after having gone through two applications for PIP where in both cases the lies on the reports by an SRN and a Paramedic have devastated me, especially as I revealed sensitive information regarding my mental health. The paramedic in particular has galled me because during my assessment with her when I was questioned on my mental health I broke down uncontrollably and she came and knelt in front of me giving me tissues and said “It’s ok you don’t have to talk about it I can read it here” yet in her report she stated that I was not anxious, nervous or distressed and that I coped well with the interview throughout. I lost my Mandaory Reconsideration and do not have either the emotional strength or mental capacity to go through another appeal. Is namimg and shaming a real option? more importantly is it legal? at this stage though I hardly care!

      Hi tatty the best advice I can give you is don’t appeal again because it will take far to long so what you must do is make a fresh claim because it happened with my partner she had been getting pip for a few years and when her review came up she failed and also lost her appeal just like yourself and her health is more worse when she first claimed the citizens advice told her not to appeal the mandatory again after she failed the first time they told her to make a new claim for pip.

        Hi Mark, sorry to hear that your partner has been through so much, I can fully understand the effects on her health and hope she’s successful with her new claim.
        Thanks for your advice on making a new claim myself but for me personally it would be the third one and I am still trying to pick myself up from the mental and emotional stress of the last one which was in February this year year. Also at 64 I am almost at the cut off point age wise for claiming and on top of that I have a new GP who is not sympathetic at all. Prior to this I claimed DLA for my health problems and had no refusals so now it’s like being told that I have never had a health problem in the first place!
