    Good question, if your report is time and date stamped it can and does beg the question was the acessor in a tired state of mind to write a report at that late / early hours a high accurate standard with out mistakes or errors unless the  system software allows, permits reports to be written automatically relying the initial imput from the acessor at the acessment.

    If my memory serves me correct the DWP told the assessing companies that actions like this should cease. All reports are expected to have been written up before the next one started. If this assessment was the last one then it should have been completed before the assessor left the office. 
    Writing something up 6 days later is really not on. 
    There is a policy - always has been and still is that within the government service reports of this nature must be written up at a time when all of the information obtained is still fresh in the mind of the officer concerned. Many was a time that I was still at my desk at 6pm writing up reports based on an interview held that afternoon
