I have finally managed to start my process for getting assessed.
I’ve spoken with my friend who got assessed a few years back but had a very different experience to me, and I was just wondering what everyone else’s experiences have been like.
Mine so far has been:
- I contacted my doctor to whom I had to send a write up of my symptoms, etc.
- They referred me for NHS funding for assessment
- Me and someone who knows me had to fill out a bunch of paperwork about me and send it back
- I think I now need to wait and hear back if I have been approved for funding and assessment, and the assessment waiting list can be around 18 months
What was your experiences and process like for getting assessed?
