Hi, I'm SmoothyII! Do I need another fit note after being awarded LCWRA?

Hello Everyone,

I was awarded LCWRA in Dec 2022. Do I need to still get 3 months' fit notes from my doctor and when am I likely to get another horrible assessment?

Thank you in advance! 👍

    On your decision letter it would have told you that you no longer need to send anymore fit notes. LCWRA is an ongoing award until a new decision says otherwise. Reviews are suspended at the moment so it's unlikely you'll be reviewed anytime soon.
    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.
