TOPIC: Support group after medical

Support group after medical 3 years 11 months ago #105959

Just wanted to let you know and say thank you to all the people who work so hard on this site helping us. I have been placed in the support group after assessment, I was told when I rang up to request ESA85 it is for 18 months. I have had that back, but not had anything to say which discriptors I met and not sure what to ask for. I have been in shock for a couple of days and very relieved, at least the pressure is off for a little while. :)

That is great news Bluebell! Thank you for letting us know and for your kind words about this site :)

People can often work out where they scored points from the ESA85, although is does not say so specifically. If you would like to have a copy of all the paperwork associated with your claim you can make a 'Subject Access Request' to DWP

Thank you for your reply and your previous help. It did say how many meters I walked which was well below the 50meters stated, so maybe that was what got me into the support group.
