Felling nervous and excited at the same time. I have butterflies. I thinks I am ready but worried I will forget something. While I know I could lose I am comforted by the fact that the LA's actions have shown they are worried they will lose.

Thanks for they advice you all have given.

Glad it went well. In my naivety I thought Tribunals gave their judgement on the day. So this is an eye-opener that they go away for agonising weeks to ponder!

Thanks. I am glad to hear that my comments about the panel were positive.
There were some things that were agreed on the day rosielou.

Are the things that were agreed on the day things either you or the LA conceded in the room so that the panel doesn't have to intervene? I'm going for an indi SS so I'd better be mentally prepared that I might not get a decision on the day.

Yes that is correct. Good luck!

Cheese - hang on in there - the reliving is normal. I kept thinking 'I should have said..' and then remembered it didn't matter. Nothing that you did or did not say will have made the difference. You have done your best and no-one can do more. smile

Rosie - are you July?

rosielou678 Wed 08-May-13 17:26:57

Yes we are July. First requested SA in January 2012. The whole system is a joke!

The process is too long. Ours started in may. One problem i found is that the reports completed in sa are our of date.
