    I applied for pip first time on 16th January 19. 

    Received a letter from independent assessment services on 12th February 19 saying 'we are independent assessment services. We conduct personal independence payment assessments for dwp. Our job is to help dwp understand how your health condition or disability affects your daily life.

    One of our health professionals has looked at the information you sent to dwp. We're writing to let you know that we've asked for further information from people involved in your treatment or care.

    We've done this to make sure the assessment report we send to dwp about your case is fair and accurate.

    Once we've got the further information we've asked for, our health professional may be able to finish your assessment report for dwp without having to see you in person.'

    Then got a text on 18th February 19 from dwp saying 'We've received the written report of your PIP assessment. We will write to you once we've made a decision on your PIP. As a guide you should hear from us within 6 weeks. You don't need to contact us unless any of the details you gave us have changed. Thank you.'

    Called independent assessment services on same day as text and they say no f2f needed.

    I only sent them a doctor's report with my pip form so wondering why no f2f.

    I suffer from depression ,anxiety and chronic dsh.

    Any info would be welcome thanks
