New evidence

I am caring for someone who is disabled. In October 2022, the assessor awarded him 6 points DL and 4 points Mobility.  Back pain issue was raised and he needed aid to wear his shoes but DWP ignored this and no point was awarded in descriptor 6.  The Tribunal confirmed DWP's decision in November 2023.  However, there is a diagnosis in February 2024 which confirmed back problem did exist.  Can we appeal to the Upper Tribunal on the basis of new medical evidence which has now come to light. 
Never allow DWP assertions to define you. They never have evidence of your true circumstances.
