DWP: GP letters for PIP, ESA, UC, appeals…

Who do I see?

We are unable to provide letters of support

Advice:

The DWP will usually contact your GP directly to obtain medical evidence when you submit a PIP, ESA or Universal Credit claim. NHS doctors have a contractual obligation to provide the information requested directly to the requesting government authority. The information that we provide is factual only and based on our records and our understanding of your problems. We are not able to make any recommendations as to whether your claim is justified.

We are therefore not in a position to provide additional letters of support.

We have provided some useful contacts shown below to help you:
