No longer need assessment

JDP66 Member Posts: 1 Listener
Just looking for advice if possible.  Not sure if I'm in the right area here?  This week I attended an esa face to face meeting but when I got there i was told i no longer needed to attend assessment due to a gp's report they've received but not sure what this means if anyone has knowledge of this?
Thank you

    Thanks for the tag @thespiceman

    HI and welcome @JDP66

    This can only mean good news because they can't find you fit for work without a face to face assessment. Although, if it's not your first assessment they can place you into either of the groups.

    Hopefully, it won't be too long for a decision to be made but once the report has been returned to DWP you can ring them to request a copy 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. Good luck.
