Had my home face to face assessment at home yesterday. The lady seemed nice, was a mental health nurse. Which i think seems good as i have autism and really struggle with anxiety and depression .

when can you as DWP to ask for a copy of her report?
And is there normally long waits to hear from DWP for if they award you or not?

thankyou for your help
