What happens after your assessment?
We write a report - The Health Professional you spoke to will write an independent report. This is based on the evidence you’ve already provided, as well as anything you discussed in your consultation.
We select reports for quality checking - To make absolutely sure everything is consistent and accurate, we randomly select assessment reports to quality check.
We pass your case back to DWP - When we’re satisfied with your assessment report, we send it on to DWP.
DWP select reports for quality checking - To make absolutely sure everything is consistent and accurate, DWP also randomly select assessment reports to quality check.
The DWP decision - DWP will look at your claim and its supporting evidence. This includes our assessment report and your questionnaire and further evidence.
DWP will send you a letter in due course once they’ve made their decision, explaining why you will or won’t get PIP.Watch this video to find out more about the PIP Decision. Also available in BSL.
Claimant Satisfaction Survey
Claimant Satisfaction Surveys - We might ask you to complete a satisfaction survey to make sure we hear your views on how we have done. This will help us make our service better.
Getting a copy of your assessment report - You can only request a copy once DWP writes to you with their decision. To ask for your copy you should contact DWP on 0800 121 4433 or textphone 0800 121 4493. We’re not able to provide a copy of the report on the day of your face-to-face consultation.
