    Possible the assessor looked at the paperwork and decided it was possible to write an assessment report without speaking to you.
    Information I post is for England unless otherwise stated. Rules may be different in other parts of UK.

    A paper based assessment can only mean a good thing in my opinion. Once a decision's been made a letter will be uploaded onto your journal.
