TOPIC: Form doctors get sent regarding ESA

Form doctors get sent regarding ESA 7 years 9 months ago #65445

I recently sent in my ESA50 and have heard from my doctors surgery today that they have had a form to fill in about me.

Can anyone advise what the form asks?

The reason I ask is I am having to have a phone consultation with one of the doctors this afternoon as he wants to "go through a few things with me" as it turns out my usual doctor who knows my history etc... is herself quite unwell and they don't know how long she is going to be off for. So it would be helpful for me to prepare if I knew what the form asks.

Many thanks!!

HI smc,

I don't think I've seen a factual report form for ESA. But if the form is an ESA113 then there are details about it in this DWP guide .

Thank you!!!

Interesting that on the list of things they ask Standing and Sitting are not on it!!! Two things my condition causes me to have great difficulty with.:(

Well I have spoken to the doctor now and he had filled in most of form from my notes but it was question 4 of the ESA113 that he needed to go through the tick boxes with me and find out reasons why I have difficult with the ones I do.

He also had to see if I could get to an assessment centre alright. I told him I would be given a lift by car. So I expect I shall be receiving a call from ATOS soon! I had just been thinking last night it was two weeks since I had posted the ESA50, wasn't banking on this call from my own doctors mind!!! B)
