    Hello and welcome, there is no set time for the official award confirmation letter once you have had your assessment you can request a copy of your assessment report and on receiving it see what your award may should be but you still have to wait for the official award confirmation letter which can take up to 8 weeks or more to arrive.

    Just do what I did and treat it as another hospital appointment.
    It's just about 45mins to an hour of answering questions that the HCP asks.
    I supplied evidence for everything I'd put on the PIP form and also supplied an up to date repeat prescription list, the HCP who was a nurse seemed to be happy with that and didn't need anything else.
