    The report is returned once it’s been written, sometimes returning it is delayed if it’s in an audit.

    Usually the report is sent the same day by e mail, then as Poppy says it can take upto 12 weeks for a decision
    2024 The year of the general election...the time for change is coming 💡

    They very often tell you what you want to hear. I've never really quite understood how someone from a call centre will know how a decision maker is looking at a report at that moment.
