ESA 2 YR RE-ASSESSMENT

charlie79charlie79 Member Posts: 202 Pioneering
I need advise when I originally started ESA my assessment was paper based due to lots of evidence re: my rape  and other issues. The severity of my my situation is the same and will never change.
I have sent in detailed evidence from SLAM saying i cannot live or do things on a daily basis and need constant prompting and care and they went into great detail about my medications ptsd agoraphobia and stated i was house bound without question in there letter.
I also sent a letter from my Doctor in great detail. Both letters say i need a home visit as housebound and go into great detail.
I have an apt on the 4/02/19 which has been left open until seen these. I only managed to send SLAM letter as I had to wait for cpn to do her 2 weekly visit.
I re-sent all medical evidence yesterday just in case via email and also sent to them the evidence by recorded delivery yesterday. 
How long before they contact me im so nervous. I AM A 100% housebound. I wouldnt be able to go to Assessment Centre Physically if I wanted to

    Hi,

     Unfortunately no one can answer your question about time scales. Did you send the evidence to the health assessment providers or DWP? It should be the health assessment providers. Have you tried ringing the to ask if the've received it? It's really the only way you'll know you're answer, i'm afraid. Good luck.

    As they only received it today then wait until Monday. You can also ask for a reasonable adjustment under the EA 2010.

    HOW  DO i DO A REASONABLE ADJUSTMENT 2010. IS IT A FORM I HAVE TO FILL OUT A LETTER I HAVE TO SEND OR A REQUEST I CAN DO VIA PHONE

    The EA 2010 is the Equity act for disabled people. It explains it here. You should put your home assessment request in writing and mention the EA 2010.

    I'd wait to see if they contact you after sending the letter today, as they only received it today.

    I don't know how your conditions affect you so it's extremely difficult to give any further advice.
