    Hi @Zenkoblue, this must be very stressful. Have you informed them you can not attend on Tuesday?
    I can only advise calling them tomorrow and asking for advice. Explain again that you can't make the assessment and require a home visit.

    I agree with Adrian_Scope, you will need to ring the health assessment providers to tell them you can't attend the assessment. You're allowed to cancel one assessment but must attend the next one. If you don't attend the assessment then yes you can be found fit for work for failing to attend so you will need to make sure you ring them and i'd advise you to do this first thing tomorrow morning.
