? hello
I finally had my 2nd wca by phone today, it was a lady doctor who did it. She was very nice and extremely professional.   The call was over an hour late but they did phone me to let me know they were behind. The actual assessment call only lasted 36 minutes.

There were a couple of things I forgot to mention because of being nervous but everything was on my form..  I wondered if the decision maker will take notice of the form and medical evidence or might they just take notice of the assessors report?

Thank you x

    Ah wow I do admire people who take it all the way to tribunal.  I was expecting a f2f this time as last year they said they hadn't got enough information to make a decision. After waiting I got yet another phone assessment. 

    Glad you got a win. Fingers crossed for me. ?
