Hi everyone,

My sister suffer from severe unwarned epilepsy and she had her PIP face to face assessment yesterday , she was assessed by a young lady , and when she finished the assessor told my sister its done and you did well you can go home now and rest and she has written on a paper the name of an anti-sickness tablet to give to GP for my sister to treat the sickness she feels after taking medication , also the assessor didnt do any physical tests only questions , is this a good sign of a positive assessment ?

Thank you

    It doesn't mean anything. If your sister lives in the UK then end of next week she can ring DWP to request a copy of the assessment report to be sent to her. This will give her some idea what the decision is likely to be because they mostly go with the report.

    Honestly, I don't think you can tell until you've received the report. Some people report what seems like a good assessment only to find out they've gotten a bad report.
    But on the other hand, I had a good assessment and a good report. The guy who assessed me was lovely and kind.
    Try not to worry about it, and ask your sister to call up and ask for a copy of her report in a week or so.
