Hi All, Especially to Corneucopia, Mikeydt1, Samia, Stepheninleeds and Shystar, (as for Davewhit, not even gonna let him try and get to me. What he says may be true and that could happen at any time. Personally, I do not need those sort of comments after the past 2 years + that I and my partner, have experienced. I would have thought better of a ‘senior’ member. Think on, my personal opinion is, those type of reckless comments are not needed and may well have seriously affected somebody else who had just been through which I and many other have).
Now, back to this post, which although new help needed, is a continuation of my recent result.
Can anybody expand of the following (using my result as an example). Once a person has been notified of their result, (whether it be passing ESA WCA and being placed in the WRAG or Support group) and for those requesting a copy of the ESA85 (report submitted to DWP from ATOS detailing decision by hcp and the reasons for such decision) can anybody tell me:
1) When hcp receives ESA50 and supporting evidence, will they read these documents and, for instance, if support group criteria has been satisfied/accepted by answer given at Question 1 a of ESA50, meaning client has satisfied he is not fit for work and placed in support group, will the hcp leave it at that, and advise DWP of their findings at that point? OR,
2) Even if client, after the answer given to Q 1 a of ESA50, satisfies criteria for support group, is the hcp obliged to continue and fully read the complete ESA50 and answers with any supporting evidence, and complete ESA85 advising DWP of their findings?
I am interested for a number of reasons, but more so to find out on what grounds I have been placed in support group. I will be requesting a copy of my ESA85, but not at the moment. I want to receive confirmation of the call we received recently in black and white and digest its contents (it may well be I have further queries from its contents).
Can anybody tell me why there may be any reasons why people should not request copy of their ESA85?
Again, many thanks for the positive responses received, and Davewhit, please, please, please, bear in mind how others may take your comments. You are normally quite sensible and it may be an idea for you to put yourself in other peoples shoes before responding as you did, in my case. I am just glad that I have somebody by my side, who understands me better than I do. Other people posting may not be as lucky as me and that type of response could quite easily have put them back so, so far, from where they had come, undoing so much hard, hard work. I don’t mean to sound ungrateful or even rude, just needed to point out a few truths!
As always, look forward to any answers anybody can give, and if any other news in award letter, once received, will add this to this post.
