Mandatory Reconsideration

I asked for a MR on the 11th Oct. I the Rang Dwp this afternoon to see if any decision had been made on my Mandatory Reconsideration and was told the case manager has asked  for further information from the assessment centre and not necessarily from the assesser as they are not medical trained. Any thoughts please.
Thank you.

    The request was or is for further information regarding your acessment maybe CTV footage of your movements in and around the acessment center, as for the acessors not being medically trained they are but they are not specialists in any condition or disability. Their role in the acessment process is to see how your health condition, disability meet, matches the PIP descriptors as to what you filled in your application form. They are as recorded on my ESA acessment form a Disability Analysts

    Thank you for replying Wilko, I also sent in more evidence on how my condition affects me, with what I sent with my pip form and the new evidence to what was written on my assessment report was like they where talking about a completely different person. Back to the waiting game.

    Is the award what you believe you are entitled to or what you are willing to accept?

    Hi Yadnad it's what I'm willing to accept, I had zero points on both care and mobility before, I don't want rock the boat so to speak and chance losing either or both.
