    The majority of people have either telephone or face to face assessments. Those that have cancer and are having treatment or about to receive or recovering from radiotherapy/chemotherapy do not have these assessments and qualify for the Support Group.
    Backlogs are huge so you maybe waiting quite a while for an assessment, if one is needed. It is possible to have a paper based assessment but these are rare.
