hi had my f2f esa home visit yesterday read my doctors letters asked me some questions super quick medical apologised for asking questions and thanked me for my time he even went as far as answering questions for me what worries me is the fact that he was in an out in 16 mins should I be worried about length of time? Thanks

    There's really no timescales, it depends what questions they need to ask you. I've had face to face assessments that have last a little as 10 mins and as long as 1 hour and 15 minutes. The length of the assessment means nothing.

    If you live in the UK wait a week and ring DWP to request a copy of the assessment report to be sent you, that will give you some idea what the decision is likely to be.

    Hi @weetracyc, I don't think you need to worry about the length of time, as Poppy said they can vary hugely. 
    I hope the experience wasn't too stressful. Please let us know when you hear the outcome!
