    After around 7 days you can request a copy of the report, which might give you an indication of the possible award, I say possible because it's down to the DWP DM.

    Hi @rach21 - I'm pleased your assessment went well, but whilst we all hope you get the right outcome, not a lot can really be read into it going well.....just fingers crossed. :)

    Did you request a copy of your report? That would give you a indication of how it went. I’m sat waiting too. Had the text saying they received my report on the 27th of May and a letter off then yesterday saying they have all the information they need!!! Talk about keeping you on edge lol
