    Hi @juliealice, and welcome to the community!

    So sorry to hear about your assessment outcome. Are you considering appealing? If so, take a look at our advice on DWP appeals and keep up updated: we'll do what we can to support you. Many of our members have unfortunately been in similar positions, and I'm sure they'll be willing to offer their support and encouragement too.

    juliealice: Do you happen to know what qualification the so-called HCP they sent held? ie a physiotherapist, general nurse or DR or some other without the required experience,
    As others have suggested,  request  a MR and also request the ESA85 (HCP's report)and LT54 (decision makers report) from the DWP as well
