Hi all have you ever heard of the Decision maker ever going against what the assessor has awarded ? ie. Like lowering the points on daily living and mobility plz

    Hi @thedoc the decision maker went with my decision on my report. I saw you asked this already in another thread, have you heard something to the contrary?

    I been on this forum for 18 months and have only heard of one DM change a recommendation from 5 years award to a 10 year award.

    Ditto to other forums I am on.

    There is no evidence of any changes being made by DM.

    If such actions where taken by a DM, this would be “an abuse of process” as they have no power or authority, to override the assessor.

    All a DM can do is send it back to AP for clarification or such like.

    I apologise if I've already ask this question the waiting to hear off the DM is far worse than the f2f was the assessor was very nice female nurse
