Hi everyone. Well I had the dreaded PIP assessment on sunday 21st Nov with ATOS. I had a male nurse do interview. They booked my taxi with did not turn up for me😠So stressed. Tried ring the 2 concast numbers on letters. Not good office closed. So I rang 118118. On phone house phone may I add for 1 minute and 52 seconds at a cost.of £8. 44 😰 so My friend paid for cab. Then couldn't find building . When we did . My friend had a right go and unknow to us he put me higher on list . Anyway was in the interview for 2 hours and 10 minutes. I have not read 1 good out come. Only horror stories. Im so stressed at the thought of losing the car. As I cant stand for long and wait for bus. I live on edge of town. I will be glad when I get the dreaded brown envelope. As anyone else had a very long interview. I really donot know what points I will get. Xx

    Hi, Paula you don't need to stress now , wait for the decision if you are awarded hight in both then you keep your car, otherwise they will take it . And yes interview sometimes it's 3 hours or 2 hours basically just to check ppl  if they are setting without discomfort and have a 2 hours conversation yes it did happen to my friend after 10 minutes she asked them to get her a bed or they have to finish the assessment at home , which the assessment last nearly 3 hours but her she doesn't have a car , she was awarded hight in both ,it took 5 weeks to get an answer,she never called them , good luck

      Hi Nadnad. I asked if I could stand and get comfy. Which I did. He did say he could see that I was in pain and couldn't stay in postion for very long. I'm pleased your friend was awarded both. It's not very often you hear a good outcome. I can understand why they do it though. I'm a stress head anyway so until I get that brown envelope I will stress. X
