    I realise now after getting the report (I asked for it a few days after the assessment) that she was watching me like a hawk all the time. Noted my every move, etc.

The woman barely took her eyes off her laptop the whole time, but when I got her full report with the appeal pack, it sounded like she's been watching me in minute detail the whole time, right down to which finger I used to flick through my diary to check when my last appointment was (I've never claimed to have finger problems).

    If you want a home assessment (for any reason) - simply email DCPUALTERNATIVE.FORMATTEAM@DWP.GSI.GOV.UK and ask for one !!
    They will offer you exactly what you need !!

    Hi just an update I had my f2f today with a lady from Capita she said my evidence was very comprehensive I am not sure if that is good or not. I just wanted to say it was not as bad or scary has I expected.

    Excellent to get it out of way. I would request copy of the report on Monday from DWP as they should get it electronically sent swiftly.

    Useful to have it in hand.. yes the PA4 consultation report. It isn't the decision but it will lay out exactly which descriptors the assessor thought applied and why. The DWP decision makers tend to go with the report.. treat it as best evidence... could be some weeks before decision is made but hopefully sooner.
