I have just received my face to face assessment copy of report which the assessment was done at my home .

OMG  !!! 

Where do I start it's full of lies 

Says on the report 

Whilst diagnosed with anxiety And depression he is not prescribed any medication 

I have been prescribed amitryptyline I showed the assessor the medication which I have repeat prescriptions for 

My consultant who is a professor in his field has referred me to a hypnotherapist to try control my anxiety he says I'm one of the worst cases he has seen 

I showed the assessor the consultant letter and the appointment letter for the hypnotherapy .

The assessor wrote that I was observed as being able to move round his flat independently .

would stand and move 50-200 metres independently , repeatable and reliably 

I live in a flat I got up once to go to the toilet which is right next door to the room we was in the distance is no more than 10 metres 

So many other lies 

How are they allowed to get away with it I'm in shock with what the report has said

    This does happen a lot sadly. Instead of just showing the assessor your evidence it would have been much better for you to have sent it to the DWP, either with your form or before your assessment. How many points have they scored you on the assessment report? The decision maker usually goes with what's said in the report. Sometimes they go against it but very rare. If a decision doesn't go in your favour then asking for the MR will give you a chance to send in ALL the evidence you have (copies only of course)

      I showed the the assessor all my evidence but I also sent of copies to the DWP they have all my doctors letters I even rang them up to confirm they had all the letters they confirmed they had them all on the system 

      I have measured the distance from my flat room to the toilet it's only  4 metres how can the assessor say I walked 50-200 metres it's unbelievable the lies she has written

      Please put in a Mandatory Reconsideration form. You can either down load it to fill in or ring and ask DWP to send you one. Be sure to out a letter in with this asking the courts to accept your MR. Give all the evidence you can along with this. And give the reasons you feel the assessors decision is not correct. Pointing out all if the errors in the report. This has to be done with in 28 days if receiving your decision letter. And you must send a copy of this with your MR. Good luck.

      Hi Julie,

      The MR request has nothing to do with the courts at this stage. It's to do with the DWP. If the MR decision remains the same and you take it to Tribunal then you send the SSCS1 form to the Tribunal courts with the MR decision letter attached. The courts won't accpet an appeal without the MR being done first.

    What is going on with these people? They think they can get away with anything. Do you have a complete list of medications with doctors contact information?  You need to start a compiled list of dates and times of appointments, keep anything and everything regarding your health.  It may not seem important but it is, then contact someone with legal information as to what your next step is.  Please don't sit around and let them do this to you, they will.  This is the first assessment? You will have more believe me you will.  Just don't let them do this to you.   I had a friend with almost the same problem, he was in the military then retired.  Started having problems the same thing started happening to him, he did not accept their proposals nor assessments of his abilities. Keep going.

    I have no idea of the relevance but the assessor wrote down that I was smartly  dresses 

    I was in my dressing gown and slippers wearing incontinence pads !!

      The amount of times i've heard people say this "that they were in the dressing gown" and it was stated they were also smartly dressed! Did you score any points at all for anything?

      I scored 2 points for managing toilet needs as I use an aid 

      I scored 4 points fit moving around

      Can stand then move more than 50 metres but no more than 200 metres either aided or unaided 

      How the assessor came to that conclusion I don't know as I only walked to the bathroom once which is only 4 metres away .

      On the report says was observed being able to move around his flat independently .He would stand and move 50-200 metres independently , repeatedly and reliable 

      This is such a lie I only went to the toilet 4 metres away my flat and I answered the door to let her in and that distance is only 8 metres away

      I'm sorry to hear that! You have to wait for the decision but it's most likely the DM will go with that report and there's only a small chance they won't. What you need to do now is look at all those descriptos and see where you think you should have scored points. When the decision is made you'll be able to ask for that MR in writing of course. Just don't give up, fight for what you deserve! Good luck!

    I stated that I cannot engage with people face to face as it causes me overwhelming stress and anxiety 

    The assessor wrote on the report although he has been diagnosed with with anxiety disorders he is not on any medication for this . 

    But earlier on in the report she has written down that I take amytryptyline for anxiety .

    Is this assessor stupid she just contradicted herself I even showed her my medication that was prescribed by my doctor .
