TOPIC: Esa medical

Esa medical 6 months 1 week ago #170834

Can anyone help I currently get pip standard rate low rate for mobility and also esa yesterday I underwent a esa review and had to have a medical. Was very upsetting as usual and lasted for about 40 mins but then realised when I came out that I had not been physically examined! Was this a good or a bad thing not sure why is this a good sign or not ?

I don't think it is either :) not all assessments require a physical examination and the same can be said of some conditions.

ESA Decision are taking about 2-3 weeks in most parts of the country but some members have reported a longer wait.
