TOPIC: Where do I find the points scored after medical

Where do I find the points scored after medical 8 years 7 months ago #17850

  • PauH
Hi

I have had my ESA medical also my Work focused interview and received a letter to attend Pathways WFI.
But no way do any of the letters that have been sent tell me how many points I scored on the medical.

Can some kind person who has been through this give me a heads up on where to get this information from please.

The Dr at the medical said I would get the results in the post (I never did)

Hi.

I phoned job center plus and asked them to send me a copy of the medical report make sure you tell them that you also want a copy of the points you scored and where.

My experience is that the Pathways interviews run independently of the medical and decision - DWP seem to assume you will be at least well enough to attend WFI's, which are usually run by another third party provider.
The medical is run by ATOS. They eventually send the report to DWP who eventually make a decision. DWP then inform you of the decision which is one of: support group (no more WFI's), LCWRA (continue WFI's) or fail the ESA tests (no more ESA benefit, unless you appeal. If you don't appeal, you need to sign on for JSA.)

Timescale for all this seems very variable. In my case, ATOS medical - end April, DM decision - early June, appealed straight away, tribunal November. Unless you are placed in the support group, WFI's continue.

To add to my previous reply:
You need to ask DWP/Benefits office for your medical report and reasons for the decision as soon as you receive the decision.
