Just received my PA4

I actually thought I already had my assessment letter.
But it must have been the dwp reasons for the  decision that came with the dwp award letter? 

Now I have a name and profession. A paramedic. 
I will sit and read it, because it's a good few pages.
Will be interesting to see how his view differs from the overall decision.
Do not follow me, I don't know where I am going.

    @whistles, don't fall asleep reading your accessment report they aren't that intresting to read yet informative to you personally, they provide an insight to how they came to award you your points score. Happy reading out with the medical dictionary to get an   exsplanation of the written terms used.

    Mine is simple. Read it. 
    DM disagreed with the assessor and took away two points.
    But I had a nice and honest assessor who wrote what was said. 

    I scored what I was scoring myself. I am one of those that care doesn't  apply to anymore.
