Referred for home visit medical as part of DLA Appeal

Postby Dianeb » Thu Feb 07, 2013 12:15 am

Today I was advised I have been referred to DWP Medical Services and will be contacted to arrange a home visit. Can anyone advise what to expect and is this ATOS or not as getting differing answers on google

Try and make sure you have some else present when the doctor visits. Just precautionary,but always worth having a witness. Doc usually straight forwards.

I have no idea what to expect as most online refer to ESA medicals. My daughter will be with me and possibly my husband dependant on his work schedule. I just hope they won't pull me about too much as I'm in so much pain at moment from my rheumy appointment on Monday. Are they from ATOS? If so I hear i should have a recording device in the room too.

Any help would be welcome. Thanks all xx

Sian, have messaged you. Think you may need 5 postings to be able to reply.

got appointment today and medical is Monday at 8.30 (EEK!). I'll have to set the alarm for 5 to be up and about by then.
