    HI,

    No, going alone will not go against you. They always prefer to see you in person so that you can tell them how your conditions affect you. Good luck.

    Hi going alone will not go against you, you are the one that will have to do the speaking and answer the questions anyway unless you have a representative or appointee. I went alone to mine and was successful

    Hi Poppy,  Thanks for your reply,I only mentioned this because when i went to the assessment i went alone. In my report Atos said i was well enough to attend alone. I didn’t know what to make of it

    The Tribunal are not the health assessment providers.
