We are already seeing improvements to our processes and outcomes and will continue to work further to reduce processing times and levels of work outstanding.</p><p><strong> </strong></p><p>By the end of the year we expect that nobody will be waiting longer than 16 weeks for an assessment once we have received a completed ‘How your Disability affects you’ form.</p><p><strong> </strong></p> more like this
