Hi Lollypop, so sorry to hear this. I am particularly perturbed by the possibility that this assessment may be carried out (totally inappropriately) by a psychiatrist. Are we going back into the dark ages when we were told that our symptoms were all in our minds and we were referred to a psychiatrist?

Good luck with it all. I hope your rights are taken into account and they change the doctor/other health professional conducting your assessment to one who does have experience in your particular illnesses.

Wishing you a satisfactory outcome.



Hi Lollypop, at least if your assessment is not until the 8th May you have time on your side to contact ATOS if you are not happy with the doctor doing your assessment. You already have the link from Lynn which should help if you do contact them. Hope it all works out for you, take care, Love Angela xx
