    Hi,

    Have you had a decision on that assessment yet? If not then ring DWP and ask for a copy of the assessment report to be sent to you this will give you some idea what the decision is likely to be because they mostly go with the report.

    There's no timescales to any decisions. Have you received a copy of the report? They usually go with the recommendations in there but you still need to wait for a decision.
