PIP/DLA case law for claimant stating that they have no health conditions when in fact they do

Hi all,

I have a vague memory that there has been a case in either PIP or DLA a while ago where the appellant said they didn’t have any difficulties with care/daily living, when it was quite clear that they did and a subsequent Upper Tribunal upheld an appeal on the basis that the FtT didn’t look at further evidence that would confirm they in fact did have difficulties. I think this was due to a lack of awareness of their health due to mental health or a learning disability.

Tried to search for a long time for this mythical case but I’m not getting anywhere – would anyone know if a case like this exists at all and post a link to it please?
