TOPIC: DLA Medical

DLA Medical 9 years 6 months ago #19883

Hi,
can anyone give me advice about having a medical for DLA. I have had a letter today saying they a doctor will call on Thursday.
Its made me feel very anxious as I don't know what he will do and after reading some reports on here it make me think he will just ignore what I say and fail me anyway. I suffer from asthma, sleep apnoea, meralgia, depression, and I am obesity.
Can anyone tell me what they might do with me
I am just about to read 70 questions you will be asked..

Many thanks

Tom

That seems a bit sudden Tom, usually they have to give you 7 days notice or did they make an appointment over the phone with you and confirmed it by letter? There's plenty to look at in the DLA section, the question are mainly about your "typical day" and "variations in your conditions and needs". Theres a copy of the EMP report in the guides which will give you an idea of the questions they are going to ask. Good luck
