    Usually appointments are booked 2 - 3 weeks in advance unless there is a cancellation and you are offered a short notice appointment

    Hi @freckles Sorry to hear you had your pip assessment cancelled even though you made the effort to get there through the weather conditions. Think I can remember a work capability assessment being cancelled in the past after I got there. Probably someone being abusive to staff (not me I hasten to add). It is nerve racking waiting around for appointments. Hope it arrives soon for you and partner
