Good evening, I’m just looking for some advice as to what happens next. I had my telephone assessment 2 weeks ago, I am only now able to talk about it. I thought I was so well prepared and after my initial nerves settled down, I thought it was going well. That is until the Doctor on the panel said something that totally threw me, after that I could hardly speak, my brain was like a fog and I could hardly put a sentence together. I know I should’ve asked for a break, but I just wanted it over. I had previously been awarded 10 points for care and 4 points for moving around. I was called back about 20 minutes later, and was told the care was still 10 points, but I had been awarded 10 points for moving around. I have since received a letter from the courts confirming this, but heard nothing since. I know it’s an improvement on my previous award, but given my health I was hoping for a better outcome, my question is, what happens next, and what is your best advice about taking this further. The judge when she rang me back even suggested, if I felt I’d worsened to contact the DWP. I presume she meant to start the whole process again. Thank you.
