I today received a letter from ATOS. This was in response to a complaint I had launched due to extended delays in my claim. For notation, I made the complaint at 30 weeks into the claim and received a reply 2 weeks later; I involved CAB and my MP. In my response letter it said that the complaint promoted another review of my file by a health care professional and as a result of this review, ATOS were recommending to DWP that I be placed in the support group without an assessment.

My question to you very knowledgable people out there is that: Can DWP go against this recommendation? And how likely is that?

Many thanks in advance for your time
