Are DWP still trying to carry out assessments - in light of the CV - I wouid like to think that they have cancelled all assessments ?
But where does that leave their customers/us ?
Things will get better

    All face to face assessments and appointments have been suspended for at least 3 months. Anyone who has a face-to-face assessment appointment scheduled from Tuesday 17 March onwards does not need to attend and will be contacted to discuss next steps and alternative arrangements, which could involve either telephone or paper-based assessments.

    As you're still waiting to be transferred from DLA to PIP then the wait will just continue.
