how long does it usually take from having an ATOS medical for DLA to recieving your letter? I had the medical nearly 4 weeks ago and am appealing the original desicion ( rejection) i got. Every stage until now has only taken around 2 weeks, so i was thinking that maybe the fact its taking a bit longer is qood sign. Also, do the DWP go back to your GP again at this stage to check anything? I gave permission on my original application and my GP said she had been asked to fill in a form. I was then turned down and appealed. As part of the appeal they asked to see me in person and the man i saw told me that they hadnt included any medical details from my doctor with the paperwork. Im hoping its not another rejection as im getting a bit fed up of the fight now.
