I clicked on my name which is next to welcome I hope I have done it correctly.

regarding my appeal yesterday which was allowed. I was awarded 15 points under schedule 2 and 3. They have put down 'appellant not to be reassessed. can you tell me what does this mean please?.


Schedule 2 refers to the WRAG Descriptors and Schedule 3 to the SG ones, some of the 15 point WRAG Descriptors correspond to SG ones.

The comment about not being reassessed I'm afraid is nothing more than a recommendation by the panel and is not binding on the DWP.

I think he was trying to make me feel that I will not get a home visit and I will have to go the centre. It was just a bit of advise I was given yesterday at the Tribunal by someone (not anyone on the panel)


I'm afraid that they can but it will very much depend on what the GP letter says.

Hi Gordon,

GP's letter outlines my health issues and how they effect me.

That may not be sufficient, the letter needs to explicitly state why you cannot attend at their offices.

Angel110, could you tell me what is " Equality act and section 19c of the UN Contravention of Rights of Disabled people" , please,
and how this might be helpful when requesting home assessment/ home visit?
Thank you.

Hi Kot,

The Section 19c states about reasonable adjustments. The Equality act 2010 also states that reasonable adjustments must be made. Well it didn't work for me I have to attend the centre and not looking forward to it at all from ESA assessment but will keep the forum updated.
