Those examples are based merely on what the claimant says. Just because an assessment says "patient claims X" doesn't make it true. Eg if somebody is claiming to need prompting to prepare a meal then there has to collaborating indicators, Eg are they underweight, do they need prompting about other activities.


Quote:
Prompting’ means reminding, encouraging or explaining by another person. For example: may apply to claimants who lack motivation to prepare and cook a simple meal on the majority of days due to a mental health condition, or who need to be reminded how to prepare and cook food on the majority of days.

Quote:
4.31 Some respondents felt that the points awarded for the need for supervision and prompting were not high enough in the assessment. We appreciate that an individual who needs either supervision or prompting may face significant barriers and costs and we believe that this has been reflected in the assessment by ensuring descriptors that refer to needing supervision or prompting attract an appropriate score. Some individuals who require supervision or prompting on just a small number of activities may not receive a score that would entitle them to the benefit. However, many individuals who need this type of support will do so in multiple activities. In such cases they may score sufficient points to entitle them to the benefit. As such we believe that our proposals are fair.
Auditing is a standard part of the training process for assessors. There are also other types and reasons.

Wait until you have had a decision back from the DWP, if you're not happy with the result, phone them and ask for a copy of the assessors report. Everything that went on in the assessment should be there for you to check if there's anything amiss.

Get a copy for future reference even if the outcome was a good one.
