TOPIC: re medical for esa

re medical for esa 1 year 7 months ago #138448

re medical face to face for esa. I attended one last week and was only in for 5 minutes. I did have the medical recorded. All the lady did was ask me questions about my medical history and she also had evidence from my previous assessments. She also knew that I had lost my wife in October last year when I have not put anything about this on my esa 50 form. Anyway after 5 minutes she said that she could see I was in severe pain and that she had enough evidence to complete the assessment but she dosent make the decision but everything should be alright. I was recently awarded pip high rate mobility and standard rate care. I am in the support group at the moment.

Hi t,

Early curtailment of an ESA face to face "can" be a good sign !!!

I am afraid that you will have to wait and see what the actual decision is.

You could give it a week or so then contact ESA to see whether The DWP ESA DM has made a decision which you should also receive in writing :

THE ESA PHONE NUMBER DWP : 0345 608 8545 Press Option 3 for ESA. (Open 8AM-6PM. Mon-Fri.)

Please keep us updated ! :)
