PiP ASSESSMENT REPORT AND NO SUPPORTING EVIDENCE FOR PIP2 DUE TO COVID 19 PANDEMIC

Hi All, 

im a new claimant and after a very long waiting period for my assessment since may 2019 i finally had my assessment april 14th 2020 due to the pandemic and the new guidelines i was given a telephone assessment what seemed to be a pretty comfortable experience with a atos assessor lasting for roughly 1 hour 20 mins. to date all i had done was get assistance filling in my form from the local cab office, and send it in the form was well written and give a good explanation of my needs and ability to do things for myself, all mental health related issues. the form sent had a attached note from the cab women saying that medical information will follow, but due to ill health for a long period of time. i had not been able to get any supporting evidence. after my assessment i instantly thought about the fact i had provided no further supporting information being  with my claim. i awaited the text to say they had received the assessment report and requested a copy what was sent out near enough the next day, i scored 10 points with the assessors report for daily living and no points for mobility. i have yet to receive the decision makers decision. the assessors report is very suspect in places where i believe i should of been awarded more points etc.. even on the basis of what she has written in the report itself stating many things amplifying the need for support. i understand that often the decision maker will follow the awarded points in the report,but how much weight is placed on what   the assessor has written within the report else where ?
