TOPIC: Worried about my Brothers ESA medical which week

Worried about my Brothers ESA medical which week 1 week 5 days ago #238372

in my previous post I mentioned that we had to wait 6 months for an appointment after cancelling a previous appointment. I also mentioned that we had to wait nearly an hour and a half to see the doctor as he was running late., but was relieved that the Doctor was really nice and I was allowed to answer questions when my brother was struggling. I am now concerned because the Doctor focused all of his questions on his learning difficulties, and non of his physical difficulties and didn’t examine him. The assessment only lasted about 20 mins. The points I was expecting to gain were for both physical and mental. Initially I was relieved when we came out of the medical and was feeling quite positive but I am now worried that the Doctor hasn’t addressed his physical disabilities and the decision maker will not take them into consideration. I was thinking of asking for a copy of my brothers assessment, have many people been successfully in obtaining theirs before a decision was made?

Hi Crowie

You can ring now for the assessment report. It normally takes 6 - 10 days. This should be before the decision unless you receive a very quick one.

Hi my assessment report took took 2 days to come and I got it 2 weeks after my assessment and it did put my mind at rest a bit, so worth asking for as I didn't get my decision letter for another 4 weeks after it came,
