Doctors call

Hello my doctor called atos on the behalf of my son today but not sure what questions they ask for they sent me a letter saying that they have asked for further information from gp and cahms and if they get it he may not need a face to face home asssemnent but I was told the health professional said he's got on appointment on the 7th of Feb can helth professionals look at claim again if they have further evedince so a face to face may not be needed if they receive it thank you

    Hi, 

    If they have enough of information to do the paper based assessment then they will contact and cancel the assessment. If they don’t then the assessment will go ahead.

    It will need to be sent to the health assessment providers and not to DWP because DWP don't deal with assessments.
