About 90% of claimants are required to attend a face to face assessment.

IAS used to be called ATOS, there website can be accessed from the following

brilliant gordon thanks for that, it gets you thinking you've not supplied the correct information and there trying to catch you out thats how they make me feel.
am i correct in thinking its similar to your original pip f2f medical regarding the questions because I'm not a wordsmith and can only tell them the same as before but with unto date scans and medical reports.
also i felt that last time having read the persons report the last time loads of information was missed out and i felt it was just dismissed , despite this i was awarded higher care and low mobility i have no faith in the process and am going to pay for an advocate to attend with me this time.

Your money might be better spent recording the assessment!

An advocate is unlikely to be allowed to interfere in the assessment process and if they do, it could lead to the interview being terminated.

However, it is of course your decision.

I would recommend recording your assessment BUT do it the right way, with permission

thanks for the advice gordon thats brilliant, its just that the last medical was so fast and like a whirl wind , my carer and i could tell they were rushing the questions. i suffer from significant spodlylopic changes throughout my spine and significant fibromyalgia and depression as a result of this I'm on massive amounts of opioids and in a constant fuzzy mental state which i find it hard to explain myself clearly sometimes. i just feel that with an advocate sitting quietly in the room taking notes and not interfering. it would help if it came to a tribunal in the future. i know I'm jumping the gun, after being awarded what i thought was correct last time but from the last experience i concluded that they are just not listening to what people are telling them, my gp was disgusted when they dismissed my depression and medication i take for it. have you heard similar stories gordon?
