    HI and welcome,

    I'm one of the community champions here on scope and i'm here to help and advise others.

    I'm not sure who told you that you'll have a decision in 10 days but that's very optimistic. There's no timescales for any decision but expect something like 2-8 weeks, possibly longer. Backlogs are just part of the reason a decision can be delayed.

    If you live in the UK then ring DWP to request a copy of the assessment report to be sent to you. This will give you some idea what the decision is likely to be because they mostly go with the report.

    Thank you....I've been so worried. That's reassuring. Of the people on this forum how long have they been waiting from f2f assessment to decision on average?

    You're welcome. There's really no timescales, as i advised, it can be anything between 2-8 weeks sometimes longer.

    The wait is tough but hopefully isn't too long

    Hi sent forms back end of September and got my decision 1st February! It’s awful to leave vulnerable people this long
