    How long does it take ATOS to send medical results? 29th May 11 at 12:17 PM
    Hi Everyone,

    Not sure if this is the correct place for this question so sorry if its not.

    I went for my ATOS medical for ESA in February but still havent received my results. Should I have had them by now???

    I am still receiving my payment every 2 weeks at the normally WRAG rate but have heard nothing at all from the medical.

    Should I be chasing this up and if so is it ATOS I would contact or DWP? I dont really know who deals with this. I am just really confused and tired of the whole thing.

    Thank you
    Emma

    I certainly wasn't sent it.

    If you mean the determination on your case - I'm not sure if they notify if there has been no change in circumstances.
    For me, it took a month for them to decide after I got the medical.
    I'd advise phoning them and asking the status of your claim.
    As you've continued to get payments - it's most likely they either haven't decided for some reason, or simply haven't notified you as there is no change in your benefit.

    Thanks for your replies. I never really thought of it as no change of circumstance.

    I failed my first medical nearly 3 years ago getting 0 points and had to appeal the decision and won getting 42 points. I wondered how they could have got it so wrong in the first place. The decision makers said it was possibly because I had a positive outlook on things.

    So I never received a letter at all this time and I just wasnt sure how long the turn around time was. I will ring the DWP tomorrow to try and find out. I really want to know how long it has been granted for this time. I have a neurological problem that no one seem to be able to get to the bottom of. I keep being asked to be a case study for students etc as theyve never had such a strange and exciting case. (For them it might be - I would just like my body and brain back please!)

    Thanks
