In January I had an appointment for my ESA benefits.
After waiting for an hour and a half I was then told that I wasn't going to be seen by a doctor.
I was then told that another appointment will be organised and they'll let me know of it soon.
Well, months went by and I had heard nothing so we assumed that I must be awarded my benefits and they had failed to tell me cos I was still being payed ESA.
I told a member of staff at my Headway that my benefits (PIP and ESA) had been sorted... so I thought.
The other week I got the letter about my re-appointment. The appointment was this morning and it Seemed to go by ok.
Now is the waiting game. I have to see what the DWP decide now.
but I just wanted to add a little something, the appointment was at the Fareham assessment building and first thing we noticed once we arrived was that almost all the parking spaces around the building were DWP staff and there were quite a few DWP parking spaces too. Are there really that many people in this one building?
Anyhow, we did park in a disabled space that was actually marked "Only disabled badge holders using the health centre can park here" or something similar.
The health centre was next door to the assessment building.
After the appointment I did a little shopping with my mum and dad and treated them to cake as well as it was both of their birthdays last month and then my dad had a closer look at my disabled badge. The badge had actually expired last month.
