    Hi there 

    If you want to com9llain it would be to the assessment provider 

    You can request a copy of the report after 7 days this is just recommendations you could then write to DWP explaining 

    You could also put details on your journal

    You cant appeal a report but you can appeal a decision 

    They should contact you with a decision even if it's to say they need a f2f assessment before they can make a decision 

    Yes you can request a copy if your assessment report just call DWP 7 working days after assessment to request 

    It may just be they put assessment was stopped and no other details 

    You need to request the report then wait and see what happens 

    You can then put in a mandatory reconsideration against the decision details will be in the letter
