TOPIC: ESA F2F

ESA F2F 1 week 4 days ago #174912

Good Evening,
I attended my ESA F2F assessment yesterday.
I was seen by a Doctor and was surprised how short my assessment was 25 minutes in total.
Due to my condition I am in a wheelchair and I was not asked about any walking ability I may have, and was not tested for such either.
Apart from asking questions about my varies conditions I suffer and the medication I have to take she told me not to worry too much about the result.
I did see that the DWP had requested my medical records before my assessment as they were with my ESA claim form so in my case they at least did the "home work".
Just hoping I have passed all the descriptors to remain in the Support Group.

I think that is a typo, 2-3 weeks is more usual! :laugh:
