Medication review outcome inform UC LCWRA

 Had my medication review with my doctors after 4 and half years. 
They are increasing my dosage and referring me to the mental health team for CBT. 
I’m on LCWRA do I need to update UC of this review outcome on my journal? 
I’m also awaiting a LCWRA reassessment review. I sent the forms back in July and on the forms it has my previous medication info but not this new info as I have only just had a review now and been advised of the increase in dosage and referred to mental health team for CBT so do I need to inform the assessment people? 
Not sure how long I’m waiting for my assessment review with LCWRA.

    You can send the evidence to the Health Assessment Advisory Service. https://chdauk.co.uk/about-us/contact-us/

    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.

    Thank you I’m still waiting for the evidence to show up on my nhs record as the lady is referring it back to my doctor so the changes can be made or can I just tell them without it and that they can contact my doctor? 

    Also do I need to update UC on my journal?

    I would wait until you have the actual evidence. If an assessment is needed and you don't receive it by then you can just tell them during the assessment. You don't need to update UC on your journal.

    Ok thanks poppy for your help 

    do you think assessment people will contact my doctors? 

    Not sure if they have already spoken to my doctors or request info as The lady was asking me a few personal questions like if I leave the house, how often I have suicidal thoughts etc but not sure if this is just because of my medication review very strange.

    It's rare for them to contact your GP or anyone else. If they are contacted they will be sent the UC113 form to fill in and return.

    Yes, you will need to add that to it, otherwise they won't know it's from you.
