    @Eafs1985 good evening and a warm welcome to scope, assessments can last anything between 20 mins and 90 mins so 40 mins is around average, the HCP e mails the report to the DWP as soon as they have done it, or the same day, so nothing to read in to that.
    In a weeks time you can if you chose request a copy of the report from the DWP but remember that the report isn't the decision.
    Good luck.
