Phone assessment to decision?

Hi, 
I applied this week for PIP - I sent off the form online on Tuesday and today I had a unscheduled call with Capita who wanted to ask a couple of questions, she ended the call by saying I wouldn’t have any further assessments and she had all she needed and would send her recommendation off today - 
I wasn’t expecting it all to happen this quickly and just wondered if anyone knew a rough time between this happening to getting a decision?

    That's potentially the quickest i've ever known anyone wait after applying. Once the report is returned to DWP it can take up to 12 weeks for a decision.

    Did they send you a link for the online form?

    That is quick, but as Poppy says, there might be weeks to wait. If you start thinking about it, distract yourself.

    Just had a call from DWP to let me know I’ve been given an award, not sure what it is yet but I’m feeling very relieved
