Hi,

For those of you that requested copies of your assessment, is it usual for the DM to go with the assessors points or are these often changed? 

Did anyone get awarded the same points as assessment stated? 

Slightly annoyed I lost some points as although her written report stated about anxiety / panic attacks and needing support to engage she has then awarded no points in that section.. 

Although based on assessment I should still be looking at low mobility and standard care which il be happy with if I get it. 

Thank you 😊

    Mostly they go with the report but it has been known for them to go against it. All you can do now is wait for the decision. This can take anything up to 12 weeks after the report was returned. 
    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.
