    I'm sorry to hear this. That was a very quick process though so at least you're not kept waiting. Remember to try not to answer the questions with just a yes or no and try to give as much detail as possible. Answering with just a yes or no means the assessor is likely to come to their own conclusion.

    Is it a telephone or face to face assessment?
    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.

    I’m due a reassessment aswell, (currently receiving LCWRA)
    sent my forms of the beginning of July a couple of days before the deadline for it to be returned and have not heard a thing as of yet. In the past I’ve always had face to face assessments so I’m not sure what this one will be but I’m hoping for paper based too as they would be able to see my previous records and HCP assessments reports. 
    Good luck for yours I know how you are feeling it’s a horrible process to go through
