When offering me an appointment they said i was open to home visit or assessment centre my choice, i didnt request a home visit, do you take this as a positive or is it normal?

    Hello, im no expert but considering you gave you the option of home visit could be based on the evidence you send in about your condition. I believe they don’t tend to do these very often! Gd luck

    Hi @M_Eandme, a home visit is not given as standard, but if your evidence suggests that you would struggle getting to an assessment centre then it can be offered.

    It should have no baring on the end outcome. I hope it all goes well and please do let us know how you get on. :)

    I'm sorry about this @M_Eandme, I appreciate how tiring and frustrating they can be! We have a lot of members who have been through this process so please do let us know if there is anything else we can do. :)
