    Hi,

    Yes you have regular assessment reviews in either group and they can re-assess you anytime from 3 months. The only time you don't have them is if you're placed into the severe conditions group where all future re-assessments are turned off.

    No problem. When you think of it that really wouldn't make sense because the WRAG isn't the best group to be placed into. Support Group is where everyone wants to be.

    Wait a week and ring DWP to request a copy of the assessment report to be sent to you, this will give you some idea what the decision is likely to be because they mostly go with the report. Good luck.

    Thing is she was really sympathetic and understanding not sure if she was being genuine but you hear so many stories about mental health issues being put on wrag i guess i was hoping to find an answer instead of waiting for goodness knows how long 😀
