Short ESA re-assessment
I finally had my assessment last week after having it had rescheduled for a second time, on both occasions I attended only to be rescheduled. On the third visit (I was seen after an hour and a half wait) I saw a doctor, she was very pleasant, however, she rushed the assessment, her sole focus was on the bowel issues (faecal urgency and incontinence) . I had to push her to ask about my mental health (depression and anxiety, under the care of a psychiatrist, and taking anti-depressants), even then she brushed it off. No medical was done, none of the questions that were asked in my first assessment was even broached. This has left me unsettled when I asked her why has she not asked in detail about my mental health issues, she said that the DWP sets the questions to which she asked about (I find that to be nonsense). She then went on to say, that a short interview usually means a favourable outcome to the claimant. This really worries me, any advice, please?
