Hi would it go against you to go to a wca alone if you have mental health issues? You hear of such horror stories about these assessments.such appreciated.

    Hi @Silver925 

    Thank you for sharing this with us. I do not think it should go against someone, but some of members may able to answer this for you.

    Have you ever told them that you can't go out alone or need a lot of support to attend appointments?

    I need someone to go with me to places I have not been to before as I fear getting lost or not being able to find somewhere I need to go to. I will  panic if I am late.

    I also get confused . My sister went with me last time .I just need someone to travel on bus with as I don't like travelling alone. She might not always be able to come so my neighbour said she would give me a lift if necessary.

    If you can, get someone to go with you to the WCA. Also refuse to be assessed by one of their scam nurses, ask for a doctor, you have a right to be assessed by a doctor. And finally, ring up a few days before you go to the WCA and tell them you want it recorded.

    Hi @Silver925, have just been catching up on past posts and came across this one. I hope your WCA appointment went well and you had someone accompany you? Keep us informed of the outcome and how you think it went. Kind Regards
