TOPIC: ESA support group..how to pass medical assesment

ESA support group..how to pass medical assesment 3 weeks 3 days ago #196460

I wonder if you can help? I may have an upcoming medical assesment.
I suffer from depression and one minute I appear normal like anyone else and the next minute I can lay on the floor short of breath, how can I possibly pass the assesment if I am well on that day.
Lastly can you remind me of the disadvantages of having a home visit .
thank you so much

You need to explain how you are the majority of the time, as you appear to be in the SG then you should assume that this has been considered in the past and you have received an award so it may not be the problem that you think it is.

Thank you ! I havent had an assessment for abot 5 or 7 years..any idea why ? Will that go to my advantage.

So if iam ill for 40% of the time and ok ish for 60% then I would likely fail the assessment ?

Sorry mate..iam finding this all very difficult

Eash assessment is a view of your conditions at that time so not being reassessed for some time would not be a factor.

If you are not affected for the majority of the time then you are unlikely to score.
