    Hi freckles

    Normally a home assessment requires a specific GP's letter stating that you cannot attend a centre.

    However, If they have canceled your appointment date without making a new dated then you may be in luck.

    This happened with my wifes assessment. We kept ringing every day for a home visit and kept getting told none available. They did drop the info that they can only book/see appointments 2 weeks in advance, as long as you don't accept a date they should find an open home visit slot. Ring them as early in the day as you can

    Good luck
