Took my son for his assessment today the woman who was meant to to it had to many ppl so she says to a young girl  are you medical trained. And can she do his. She had no idea what she was doing as its not our first one she asked a few questions and they said OK I think that's all I need after waiting over an hour we were done in 15 mins strangest ever will see what happens when I get the report back

    Hello @Firefly123 my medical assessment for universal credit was over within a matter of minutes but I was placed in the LCWRA group. I hope you find out the answer soon, try not to worry if you disagree with the decision you can always explain you felt the assessment was inadequate and appeal :)

    His last assessment was well over an hour and asked so many questions in all different ways. This was just 1 2 3  ok that's it. Thanks @CaraLee just so much stress

    WCA assessment times can vary and be anything from a few minutes to well over an hour in some cases. It's impossible to tell just by the length of time. I recently had one that only lasted 15 minutes. When i first applied years ago mine only lasted 10 minutes. Successful both times.
