    They don't usually send you for another assessment when you request the MR, usually a different decision maker will just take another look at the decision. I can't tell you why they are requesting another assessment. Have you rang the Health Assessment Advisory Service? They maybe able to tell you why another one is needed.
    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.

    Hello there. I'm sorry to hear you're feeling so upset @jel2007, when we don't know why something is happening it can be very unsettling.

    It's good that you've posted messages on your journal to try and find out what's going on. Have you had any responses to those messages? :)

    Can I ask if you feel you're getting enough support for your mental health at the moment? Have you spoken to your GP about how upset you've been feeling lately?

    If there's anything we can help with please ask, and we'll do what we can for you.

    Hello again @jel2007 thanks for explaining how you're feeling, it can be difficult to be so open, so well done. I am sorry that you're having such a difficult time right now. 

    Can you tell me what support you're getting with how you're feeling, is your GP able to help with your mental health at the moment? 

    There's plenty of places you can go to for support as well, such as Mind, who have resources on self-care.

    There's also Samaritans, who you can call on 116 123 to talk with someone who'll be there to listen and not to judge.  

    Or if you prefer, you can text "SHOUT" to 85258 anytime for support over text.

    We'd like to support you as much as we're able, so keep an eye out for an email from community@scope.org.uk a little later on today.

    I'm glad to see that you feel supported by this forum, so if you still need a hand with your UC or WCA then please let us know, and we'll help out as best we can.
