Any advice would be very much appreciated.

Cheers.


It's more likely to be due to Summer holidays.

Sorry, I meant to add that I legally recorded the assessment so any lies and discrepancies can be picked out easily, except for the 'cunning' way she described how I walked to and from the room. It's my word and my carer's word against hers on that unfortunately.

Surely, if an assessment is recorded in the legal way,
which it was, if a claimant can correctly explain that the report is inacurate, the recording really has to be listened to if need be to verify.

I'd have thought this should be mandatory, otherwise what is the point of providing an extra recording for the DWP in the first place?

I don't disagree with you but the reality is that a Decision Maker will not review the recording.

Hi, thanks for your replies. I won't give up, believe me. I just hope that it gets sorted. Once it is sorted one way or another, I am reporting the assessor to Atos, I've got the form ready and waiting, and also reporting her to the Nursing and Midwifery Council.
