I'm now really concerned! On your list, this centre is "currently unavailable, so WHY do I have my assessment there next Wednesday, 19th July??

When I contacted Independent Assessment Services (previously ATOS) they told me this centre was "only about 7 miles away from Harrogate!" It turns out they were very, very wrong - it is 20 MILES away and is going to cost £40 each way for me to travel to this centre. My husband is accompanying me and as he is also a powerchair user, it will cost a further £40 each way for him too, but we cannot claim for him, just for my travel expenses. I have already ordered my Travel Reclaim Pack to be waiting for me at the centre, but should I phone up and double check that it IS an available assessment centre?? I'm totally confused and very concerned.
