I wouldn't assume that medical appeals are not being dealt with at the moment, LS. I see no reason why SMO(SE) and team shouldn't be able to continue to process at least some of the appeals. If there are difficulties, I would imagine that they exist when more information needs to be acquired from an external source like a GP or specialist; the current situation would make the provision of additional evidence from those sources slower and more difficult.
Has your appeal gone in?
Yeah posted it to my AFCO a month ago now. I was just assuming given the current worldwide situation I'll be waiting a long long time to hear back.
