I wouldn't know how to assess it but I suggest you grab what is on offer and then keep a careful note of what you are still having to do so that you can ask for more later and have something to back up your request.

Take what is offered and then make a careful note of what there isn't time for them to do. Are you paying for this, or Continuing Healthcare?
