    However, the biggest mistake you can make is to just write “no change” and hope it all goes away. A form full of that will trigger a face to face assessment. 

    How does that work? I can understand if you say that there has been a change either for the worse or better there should be a face to face assessment to check on that change and to see how it impacts on the previous points scored. But to tell the DWP that nothing has changed since the last review and award you will also have a face to face?
    Wouldn't the DWP have to show what evidence they hold that suggests a change.

    I had a PIP review starting last August. Despite worsening condition, I went from 16 points to 0.
