Copy of assessmenf

Hi there. I had my telephone assessment 9.15 on Monday 18th March. The lady was really nice. Not sure if that’s a good thing or not. It lasted 1hour 35 minutes. I was surprised at the start of it that she said she only had 1 hour allocated to do the assessment in before her next one but it did run over that. 
My assessment was received by DWP (I was texted) yesterday afternoon. How long should I wait before requesting a copy? Many thanks

    You can request it anytime. However please be aware that doing so very often causes so much more stress and anxiety, even if the report is in your favour.

    The report is a recommendation only, whilst they mostly go with it, it has been known for them to go against it. 
    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.
