    This isn’t a change of circumstances that needs to be reported. You need to be very careful when reporting changes and you should only do this if it can affect your award so that you could either score more points or less points. 

    They will send you more forms to fill in and return with all your information and any supporting evidence. 

    Once a decision is made your award could either remain the same, be increased, decreased or stopped completely. 
    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.

    I knowthis is daft, but me ringing them is and telling them is that classed as a change of circumstances? I thought it was just verbally informing them what is going to happen? Sorry I'm just unsure.

    Yes they can take that as a change of circumstances and send a review form out to you. A future shoulder replacement is not a change of circumstances that needs to be reported.
