Hi and Welcome to the forum, you might want to have a look at the following FAQ which explains where everything is

Welcome to Benefits and Work

I agree that the interviews can be grueling and take their toll on the claimant's health, your sister has my sympathy :( We have heard recently from a member who had to have a second interview as the first assessor ran out of time and there are occasions where the report is audited and found to be unsatisfactory. It's a difficult situation as the claim will not be progressed without the assessment if one is deemed necessary.
