Still waiting ggrr

gypsygypsy Member Posts: 15 Listener


I was suppose to have had my reassessment in Jan of this year home visit after my daughter and myself sat waiting alllllllllll day no one came got to 3.30pm told my daughter to go home as it's a bit of a walk home (out in the sticks) when it's dark . My daughter phoned them to find out what had happened to be told the lady that was suppose to come was ill lol (wonder if she got sanctioned :/ ) they don't have my phone number due to me being hearing impaired so no way to let me know .

Now the waiting game not heard owt from them as yet not going to rock the boat as I still get my money .

Anyone had this happen and how long was it before you heard owt ? im getting stressed out it's unbelievable I already have a sleep disorder this is making it so much worst as you can imagine lack of sleep also brings mental health really getting me down not knowing .

Thank you for reading x

    You can either rock the boat and call them to arrange a reassessment
    try and put it at the back of your mind and carry on with your monthly payments.
      I know which one I would do

     Why give them Mobile and land line numbers it only works in their favour the majority of the time
