PIP review process. My form is with a decision maker. Will they pass it onto an assessor?

Hi everyone 
I have  recently  done a review  for pip. I phoned  today  as they have  had my form since the 1st November.  They say  its with a decision  maker. Does this mean they will make the decision or will it be passed  on to an assessor, like atom? Not sure  what happens with a review.  Thank you ?

    Sometimes it goes to a decision maker before being sent to the health assessment providers. As most people have assessments you should expect it to be forwarded onto them at some point. There’s huge backlogs at the moment and sometimes it takes several weeks for a file to be sent across.

    Thank  you  for  your  reply. I was hoping  since this is by second  review after the initial process and nothing  has changed  in my circumstances  I wouldn't  get another atos assessment   Both times I had to fight afterwards,  it wears you down.

    Hi @pamela1962

    Yes, I can understand why you wouldn't want another assessment, they aren't always the easiest processes to go through.
