TOPIC: Atos told my cpn i wont need a f2f assesment

Atos told my cpn i wont need a f2f assesment 1 month 3 weeks ago #170557

Im not sure if this is good news or not , i sent back pip claim form on 3rd october , my cpn nurse rang me today 12th oct to say atos contacted her asked her lots of questions about what i said on pip claim form and told her that they will not now need to to do a face to face with me , they will be sending report of to dwp and i should then hear result in 6 to 8 weeks, my cpn asked them if was ok if she rang me to tell me that i wont be needing a face 2 face and atos said yes. god only knows what my cpn nurse told them , i dont know if she agreed to what i said or not ? but suppose i can only tell what i think is the truth, how i cope each day with my schizoaffective disorder and hope to god shes backed up what i said , ive read somewhere that i can get copy of the report to see what atos thinks and has put down , how do i get this ? or should i just be quiet ? and let the process go through .

I think you need to wait for the DWP to confirm that they have all the information they need to make a Decision and that no face to face is required and then you should be able to get a copy of the report by contacting the DWP office dealing with your claim.

I've no reason to believe that you will now be asked to attend an assessment, but until the DWP have received the report there is still the option for one to be required.

You can phone or write, just ask for the assessment report.

No you're fine, it's just that we have seen assessors making statements about the process that they were never authorised to do and their "decision" being overridden by their manager.
