    It's difficult to advise here without knowing more about your situation. But i'm afraid the DWP can usually bring about another assessment if it really wants to and there's probably not a lot you can do other than to complete the process again. If you can it would be good to visit your MP so they are aware of the impact of these policies.

    Best wishes
