    A diagnosis, is not a change of circumstances that needs to be reported. Unless you've been diagnosed with 12 months or less left to live and you don't already have Enhanced for both parts.

    You should only really report changes if it's possible to score more points for a higher award and a diagnosis doesn't automatically entitle you to more points.

    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.
