    Hi there 

    Not sure what will happen maybe another WCA.  Have you reported new condition on your journal and sent in fit notes and completed the uc50 form 

    The same process will happen as your prev WCA but hopefully thet can get all infi they need from phone assessment 

    As with anything predicting how long it will take isnt easy as lots factors involved 

    Good luck let us know

    They di sometimes do what is called paper based assessments which is what you mention. These are rare though but they do happen
