PIP Face to face Assessments/ Is there a desk in the room?

When having a PIP Medical assessment, interview with the Medical practitioner,


On the day of the interview, when you are in the room having it, is there a desk there, where you can lay any notes, and recorder (after recording permission has been granted by them of course)

Do they have desks? or not?

    Still totally unsure why you always post the same question twice.

    There is a desk in the room. The assessor will have a copy of your form on the computer. They will go through the form checking medication etc. They will ask questions about your normal day ie what time do you get out of bed, do you shower every day etc. They will type your responses to their questions. They may ask you to undertake tasks such as lifting your arms above head height. Bend over etc but if it is too painful you can refuse. You w8ll not be required to remove your clothing

    The assessment would take a bit of a twist if that was asked lol
