Hi they received my review form 29th August how long does it usually take to get an appointment for a face to face? I'm goin out of my mind worrying can't sleep or eat I suffer from anxiety and depression and chronic back pain anyway every day is torture can anyone give me an idea how long it's likely to be to hear back from them I personally think they love people worried sick waiting for weeks on end?

    Once you receive the review form it can take up to 8 weeks before you hear about a Face to Face (note the lack of abbreviation - this forum deserves more than lazy text speak) don't worry, and I know that is not easy to say, but the DWP will contact you. If you do not hear by the middle of October  give them a ring, you are just seeking information, nothing more. Don't give them any indication that you are worried or concerned  Just a polite enquiry as to what is the procedure from here on in. Good luck.
