TOPIC: Result! ESA Support Group

Result! ESA Support Group 3 years 11 months ago #105750

Hello, everyone, hope you are as well as can be.

After my OH waiting *months* for a medical (which was cancelled because we requested it be recorded and the equipment wasn’t available), the 2nd medical was cancelled half an hour before OH was due to attend because the doctor conducting it decided there was enough evidence to make a decision without the medical :woohoo:

Today, after waiting nearly a year since filling out the ESA50, OH received his DWP letter stating he’d been awarded ESA and put into the Support Group :cheer:

Our deep and sincere thanks to everyone at B&W. Without the letter templates and the guides, and the (seemingly!) tireless volunteers - you stars!!! - on the website, we’d have had a terrible time navigating the migration process.

Courage, mon braves! - everything can turn out all right in the end.

Well done and thanks for your comments

It would seem that some of the ATOS assessors do read the ESA50 before the assessment :)
