    Yes, you're not the only person that's had a work capability assessment via the phone and now they need to attend a face to face assessment because they weren't able to get enough of information without seeing you in person. Unfortunately, there's no sign of these assessments starting back anytime soon. All you can do is wait and i know that's not what you wanted to hear but there's nothing more you can do.
