It can vary wildly, my first two I was contacted in a couple of weeks, my current one I'm at two months and waiting - but as I'm in the support group, I don't mind waiting.

Getting supportive evidence from doctors is an increasingly common problem for which there's no immediate or obvious solution. Doctors, snowed under with requests, rely on official guidance that Atos/Jobcentreplus will request extra info.

 

One possible solution is to subject access your doctor for a copy of your medical records which may contain something useful. Although they can charge up to £50, most will do printouts of everything that's on the computer for a tenner or so.

 

Atos can recommend, subject to confirmation by Jobcentreplus, that you're fit for work but it's an appealable decision.

 

Margaret.
