Assessment report

file28 Member Posts: 13 Connected
just received the assessment report (requested from dwp)
Having read through it I can say it is an honest and factual report 
And it read as clear and truthful as the telephone conversation conducted 
Checking through the descriptors my my scored 14 for care and 24 for mobility 
With a recommendation for no requirement to arrange a review of this claim as significant change is unlikely 
Do the dwp award the same as the assessor's score and recommendation

    They can go against it but it's rare for this to happen. You will of course need to wait for the decision. There's no timescales for any decision but hopefully not too long.

    Hi @file28 assuming they go with the report (and as poppy says they usually do) you will be awarded enhanced care and enhanced mobility, if you have heard nothing in a months time you could phone them, but it can take longer.
    Be extra nice to new members.

    Hi and welcome sounds like a good report and should get you an enhanced award for both if the DM goes with the report.

    Keep us updated when you get your decision

    It really is such a relief when that confirmation comes through isn’t it. 
    Congratulations @file28

    All I can say is be truthful and include everything during a full 24 hour, all meds,treatments o/t reports doctors notes hospital consultations just about EVERYTHING  no matter how trivial it seems have someone with you to speak on your behalf if possible, have things written down ready to answer questions you may be asked 
    Good luck to all others having to go through this process
