i know its normal to be waiting but I had my medical face to face assessment nearly 5 weeks ago and still haven't heard a decision I have severe anxiety and depression and a open broken tibia bone in my right leg due to a hit and run I have being told by few friends if I had failed they would of rang me within the first 2/3 weeks its just stressing me out are most decisions in the post that take longer then 4 weeks usually good news or? its just really stressing me out if someone could help or put my mind at rest I would be grateful

    Hi Josh yea it is stressful waiting for any form of results but to be honest it's a bit like asking how longs a piece of string, every assessment seems to be different, how long it will be is anyone's guess, you could of course ring and ask the question, they can only say yes or no as to whether they have the answer yet

    No that's not true that if you had been refused you would have heard within 2-3 weeks. There's no time scales.

    Have you rang for a copy of the assessment report? This will give you some idea what the decision is likely to be because they mostly go with that report. Hopefully not much longer.
