PIP tribunal advice

Hi, I finally applied for PIP May 22, my tribunal is in 3wks time...70 long weeks that will be in total. 
Today I have just had a letter from the tribunal saying DWP submitted new evidence 2/07/23 however it doesn't show me the content?
They always send DWP a copy of my further evidence because then it gets sent back to me. Anyway it just states that it is GP evidence outlining that I suffer from a number of medical conditions but no specific opinions on my ability to complete any of the activities. 

This has thrown me a bit as they never contacted my GP at initial refusal or during MR. 

Are they clutching at straws or trying to totally discredit me?

I've been following other cases recently as I'm terrified of going to the tribunal. I haven't seen anyone say GP has been contacted at this late stage.
