+=+Were you ultimately successful LocalResident?
My partner had a badly conducted fast track review in February this year. Complained twice to CCG, but both times they completely ignored the grounds of my complaint and gave fob-off replies. Now waiting for full MDT assessment. l am weighing up whether to extend the courtesy of informing them that I will be recording the meeting, and if so whether to do it at the meeting or in advance.
It is good that you record the meeting. If it is possible also take along someone who can make detailed notes. The aim is to for all the info to be accurate etc. It could be eligibility is turned down because of reasonable judgements with the key indicators. In my case, for complicated reasons, the key indicators weren't the main problem. The DST document was shoddy because, to give two simple examples, dates were wrong, and I hadn't been given copies of relevant correspondence.
Your question - was I successful? No. The appeal I made dragged on, and was no longer applicable.
My mother's condition deteriorated and she got fast tracked CHC.
In my opinion the DST document which you receive needs to be a decent piece of work, even if eligibility isn't granted …. [and you appeal]. That's why in addition to an appeal which is made, you should make a separate complaint if the DST document contains errors etc. There is nothing preventing you highlighting errors etc. at the local review meeting [local review MEETING, not local review panel] which is part of the appeal process.
