    Hi Adrian 

    I hope you are good

    So let me start with a bit of background I applied for last November 23 because I was receiving DLA and waiting for an assessment for years but my condition was getting worse. I spoke to my consultants and GP regarding this before applying. I had a telephone assessment which I found to be inconsistent so I complained after finding out that I could request the assessment report before my decision from this forum. :) thank you!

    My complaint to Capita was upheld I received 0 points for living and 4 points for mobility originally so this has moved to 12 and 8 on the new report. I received £110 in a goodwill gesture. The original assessment was found to be clinically inconsistent and has been amended and sent to the DWP on 9th April 24.

    I forwarded the decision letter from Capita and have a meeting booked with Citizens Advice next week was wondering if I need to do send anything else cause at the moment I have not?

    My claim has gone to Mandatory Reconsideration on the 9th April also as soon as DWP received the amended report from Capita.

    The decision may take over 8 weeks to look at, which because my DLA has ended on April leaves me as at a disadvantage. 

    Thank you for your help and any information you can provide.
