Yesterday I attended an atos medical centre for my reassesment of ESA, I am currently in the Support Group. On arriving I was told there was about a 30 minute delay and asked if it would be ok if I waited. I said I could and then after about 45 minutes I was called over and told that on reviewing my file the nurse due to see felt that she was not able to deal with my assesment and that I would need to see a doctor instead. I was given the option of coming back another day but as my friend had taken a whole day off work to come with me to the centre we decided to wait another 2 hours to see the doctor.


My assesment itself was ok, the doctor was nice but not over friendly. He repeated back what I stated and seemed to be writing down what I was doing and did not push me to say I was able to do more than I could etc. At the end I was told I would hear from the decision maker as usual when they had looked over my case notes.


I don't really know what this means, why did they change me from a nurse to a doctor do you think?

:big issue:

Some neurological conditions need to be assessed by a doctor???




That could be it, however if they had looked at my forn prior to my appointment yesterday they would have known I needed to see a doctor and I was previously seen by a nurse with the same condition although she did say she had specialist training.


Oh well just the long wait now to see what they do with me.
