Medical appeal

Hi

just a quick one, dont know if it has already been asked or that but i had sent in my medical appeal on the 12th march 2020 and then obciously we went into lock down a couple weeks after that, i was wondering if anyone knows if the appeals are back up and getting processed or anything like that, i have asked my afco a handful of times and keep getting the same reply, i will let you know when i hear something. its almost been 6 months so surely something would be back up and running

any help will be much appreciated

There was probably a backlog of appeals even before lockdown kicked in. I understand your impatience but as your AFCO has indicated you will be contacted in due course. some appeals involve outside sourced(such as you GP) and if they are still not functioning anything like normal it will drag on for some time yet.

Hi, yes i heard a couple weeks after i posted this and thankfully i won the appeal, now just waiting on a date for entry
Hello, that is fantastic news, congratulations! I am still awaiting a response on my appeal so thought I would ask to be able to guess a time frame. Fingers crossed!

If it helps, I sent in my appeal seven weeks ago and still waiting. Contacted AFCO last week and was told the average waiting time for an appeal right now is about eight weeks, but some are stretching to much longer depending on how much extra info SEMC is having to get on an individual case

Thank you, that’s really helpful! I put mine in approximately 11 weeks ago so hoping I will hear soon although I completely understand the pressures placed on them by the current circumstances. Good things come to those who wait, I just need to be patient :)

Good luck...and yes, patience is definitely the best approach in this phase of the application process!
