I have never heard of a claimant being told the contents of the assessor's report - but you have nothing to lose by asking (other than the cost of the call).

Ahh yes I learned the hard way about the call costs, over these last few months the calls have cost me about £40 with those long waits trying to get through!!
I discovered after that those calls were included in my mobile phone package so use that now.

I'll just be good and wait for the letter :)

Just wondering how long roughly it takes the DM to make a decision once they have the atos report?

I've got constant butterflies waiting, it's only been since last Thursday when that nurse called me!

Ahh ok thank you Gordon!
I did call the pip line this morning and she said my report was currently being looked at, she also said she would get me a copy of the report. She asked if the dwp were waiting on any medical information for me and I said I am unsure. She said no that's fine just thought I'd check, so bit worried there is a note on my file about info :(
She was such a nice lady though she really put a smile on my face :)

I've just got back from the Dr's again! They are making me go every 2 weeks because of my antipsychotics, but now I have been put on another tablet because he said my bloods showed that I have an underactive thyroid.

I am taking so many tablets a day it's ridiculous! Well it's 10 tablets but seems a lot to me, I know people have a lot more a day, seems for a 35 year old with no psychical disabilities to be a lot though!

Here's hoping my sertraline don't affect my new thyroid tablets as the leaflet says they can affect the way the tablets work :S

Hi I called pip again this morning and he said my claim is with a case manager and doesn't think I'll hear anything until after the new year now.

I said that's fine but I am wondering why it is being looked at by a case manager?
This has made me nervous.
I was expecting to hear that a decision maker was looking at it.

Is it normal to be looked at by a case manager before a decision maker? Are they essentially the same thing?
Thanks
