Hi Lee-J

The assessor does not necessarily go through all your ailments. It depends on how much they need to clarify from your form and the evidence you sent in. If you want to know how the assessment went you can ring up the DWP and ask for a copy of the report.

Thank you for your reply the assessment did not go well from start my daughter said she would be taking her own recoding machines as they didn't provide any they looked at them and they were still sealed so they allowed them to be used but unfortunately they both stopped working so we could not record the assessment then the assesser said her computer was not working and she would have to hand write her report them half way through she said it had started to work again we were very confused but went ahead with the assessment as I was really getting stressed .is this normal

Hi Lee-J

Those of us that use computers know that software does not always work when we want it to. It is common for the assessor's computer to stop working - probably more so than you would think.
