Hi L,

With regards to "medien" you may wish to "google" it.

With regards to the ESA Forms/Reports that may give you the necessary imformation, see :

ESA medical – what forms to ask for?

ESA Forms

The ESA85 or ESA85A should definately include your "Prognosis", the expected length of your ESA award before reassessment.

Please see also :

How often will I be reviewed

If you view our FAQ's from here : FAQ’s

You will see that there is a wealth of information.

I did Google it, and I've always known the answer to "In the the Median" It means a patient for example, would have an average of......to live.
I don't know why those words were used for an ongoing chronic illness, not a life threatening illness like Cancer, where "the median is often used; And of course I have been through all the threads, but it doesn't arise there either, and so that's why I asked here on the forum if perhaps somebody had another take on the question.

Without any context to its use, it isn't really possible to expand on its use, however, might its simply mean "on average".

Re:Support Group 7 years 7 months ago #79436

Hi Gordon,"on average" is exactly that, but why put on my Atos medical report that I would not be fit for work "in the median", it just seemed to be the wrong wording, and of course confusing to a layman such as myself.
Thank you for your response, always appreciated.
