    It does seem pretty clear that's what's said in what you've quoted here nuke.
    Extract from their (second) reply:
    DWP’s revised response is therefore as follows:

    The Limited Capability for Work Assessment is the process a claimant will go through when they make a claim for Employment and Support Allowance. This is also referred to as a Work Capability Assessment. As part of this process, a claimant can be called to attend a face-to-face examination with a Healthcare Professional, to determine the claimant’s capability for work.

    For some claimants a medical examination is required as part of the WCA. A medical examination is where the healthcare professional assesses the effects of a claimant’s medical conditions on their ability to carry out functional tasks, rather than for the purpose of diagnosis or treatment of their medical conditions.
    We do not carry out a face-to-face assessment where there is enough existing evidence to determine benefit entitlement.
    I've never heard or seen of anyone taking part in anything else (other than a Face to Face) or being asked to either.

    They have since submitted written answers to specific questions asked - At least Maximus (CHDA) and Atos have, Capita have yet to reply.

    Thank you, do you think any changes will be made? Not in my lifetime maybe.
