    Hi Martin ,I too had DS1500 given me on diagnosis 13 months ago at my request.
    I was then able to forward it with Benefit application and secured higher rate of Personal Independence Payment.
    Because MND has an unpredictable and progressive pattern my neurologist was happy to give me DS1500.
    It would have been better if you and your wife had been given an explanation about it so as not to worry you both.
    I hope it’s useful if your week wishes to apply for any benefits.
    Best wishes
    Mary

    Ds1500

    At a recent MND outpatient clinic our specialist nurse casually mentioned that she will request our GP to raise a DS1500. When asked about it she replied that ‘it something to get out of the way’. When we got home and looked it up on Google we were shocked especially with the ‘unlikely to live beyond 6 months’. Surely this can’t be right? Caroline has real issues with her arms, hands and fingers but no significant problems with breathing.
