    Thank you for the timeline @londonswivel That was exactly the info I was looking for today…..hubby had his independent nurse assessor call today and I was wondering how long it may take to hear. The call seemed to go well, assessor was warm and compassionate.  
    Hubby has had a recent Parkinson’s Diagnosis, alongside a long standing Multiple Myeloma and Vasculitis diagnosis’  and it’s difficult when being assessed to give the impact on three independent conditions. 
    He has recently had to finish work due to poor and declining health, so we do need the money to support him. 
    Has anyone got any recent experience of being assessed on multiple issues?

    I have multiple issues and the combination really makes it difficult for me. I have had a form of arthritis since a child and really wanted to stress the auto immune part and medication effects because they cause the most difficulty. This condition as caused lots of bodily irregularities such as micro red blood cells meaning im always anaemic plus i have lost all use of the joints in both wrists and joint wastage in my shoulders. Also fatigue as a symptom of m The nurse who assessed me was really helpful and understanding.

    Once the assessment report is returned a decision can take up to about 12 weeks. 
    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.
