Oh no :( I’m so sorry! If you don’t mind me asking what was the claim for? I’m on hold now - first time I’ve tried to call so I’m guessing I will be on hold a while.

No of course not. My little boy is waiting to have a tube fit as he can't swallow. Not a disability Apparently. I have requested a mandatory reconsideration. I was so sure he would get it.

It is such a long wait and renewals are being decided the week of a claim running out or up to the day it runs out I’m currently waiting on a renewal and it’s been 11 weeks since my scan date

Hi all
I’m hoping to hear any day about my sons claim, scan date was 2nd Feb and current award ended yesterday. I sent in supporting evidence but was just wondering if anyone knows do they contact the health professionals you list on the application form? My sons consultant is on maternity leave and I was wondering if that would cause a delay
TIA

Im not sure if they do . I don't think they have contacted mine but im not sure tbh as no one has mentioned it to me . I know claims are taking longer as I think there is a back log have you contacted to see if any update on the claim xx

Yes I called last week and it was still waiting to be looked at. She said that they are leaving it until the date of renewal at the moment so that may be why I haven’t heard anything! Xx
