You are 'lucky', I use the term loosely, to go into Support Group without medical. No doubt this is due to you filling in the form well. So well done and congratulations!

You need to request the ESA85A medical report prepared by ATOS, there should also be an LT54 completed by the DWP Decision Maker.

It should be possible to make the request over the phone, but if you have not received them in about a week, then you should make the request in writing to your local DWP office.
